I LOVE this recipe, and have made it many times. There are some obvious errors that need to be fixed, but other than that, it's great! Step #15 is a duplicate of #8 worded differently. And I have no idea what 56 inches of corn tortillas means, but it should say 8 corn tortillas.
We really enjoyed the blend of flavors and variety of textures. I prepared the salsa and sauce as directed, omitting only the sugar, as the mango and grape tomatoes I had were already wonderfully sweet! I did change the preparation on the fish - rather than bread it, I seasoned it with cayenne powder, cumin, and chili powder and cooked it in a pan prepared with nonstick cooking spray. I served with the napa cabbage as directed. It was wonderful! The salsa and sauce both made more than we needed for one sitting, and I'm sure the leftovers will be enjoyed as well. Thanks for sharing!
I loved this! Everything came together pretty perfectly, I did a couple things differently, I used sour cream instead of yogurt, I fried the fish and I used flour tortilla's instead of corn because we like those better, but other those those minor adjustments, everything was great, and I can't wait to make them again.
