From all of the ingredients, I thought I was really going to love this dish, but when it all came together I just liked it. I subbed tilapia and lime juice, couldn't find scotch bonnet so used jalapeno, otherwise made as prescribed. It was fun to try jerk for the first time. made for zwt3

Just a question...I'm confused about the additional ingredients... 1/2 lime (juiced) Then later it says 1 teas. fresh lime juice. Do you mix the 1/2 lime with the cabbage and jicama or does the 1/2 lime get mixed with the zest and 1 teas. lime juice for the sour cream? Thanks!

Very good Taco. I would suggest making the salsa ahead and letting it marinate. After we ate, there was a little left over and it had a better flavor. I did use salmon and tilapia for the fish but it was great.
