      So scrumptious that I ate too fast and got hiccups for the first time in many years! These are like a gourmet version of Taco Bell's Double Decker Tacos. The only change I'd suggest is to increase the amount of chipotle in the zippy sauce (I probably used triple the amount). For the fish I used marlin!

      This was terrific! If I had fresh cilantro, it would have been even better (alas, I was out and had to use dried). It still tasted great though. For the fish I used Tilapia (on hand) which I breaded after marinating (per the recipe) with panko and sauteed (personal preference). For the salsa, I omitted the tomatillos (out of em). I served them in warmed corn tortillas and topped with the sauce, salsa, and some cheddar. Very subtle changes (with the exception of frying the fish), this recipe is really good. Thanks for sharing.
