I had to use Tilapia because there is nowhere around here to find orange roughy or red snapper...I also doubled the recipe and instead of 2 tsp of the spices I used 1 TBSP because of one of the other comments saying that it was a little bland. We loved this recipe. It's a great way to make a lower fat taco and get fish into my family. Thanks for this easy and tasty recipe TeresaS. Made for Rookie Recipe Tag.
