This recipe is just awesome, we've literally had it once a week since I found it. On WW it's 2 points per taco made as shown (without guac). I use any whitefish on sale, and scallions vs onions as the onions were a little strong. Very important to marinade the fish or use a dry rub. Keep extra lime wedges to squeeze on each taco. Delish!

I forgot to rate this recipe before! It is awsome!! I use Tilapia and seasoned with fresh lime juice and Old Bay Seas.. Cooked in the skillet only. I used flour tortillas,because we do not corn tortillas. These are awsome. Thanks for posting.

Made this with Tilapia seared it with EVO salt and pepper and baked as directed in the recipie the fish came out perfect. I made a Recipe #18942 and spread it on the tortillas then added the fish, topped with cabbage slaw, my homemade salsa. I only had 1 small avacado, not enough for guacomle so i just sliced it up and topped the taco off with it. Thank U so much for this recipie it is definately a keeper!!
