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.

Before this recipe, I had never made fish tacos before. I had never eaten fish tacos either. Hubby and I were a little leary, but once we took the first bite, we were sold! This recipe is so darn yummy! I didn't have time to marinate the fish, but it still turned out tasty. Definitely adding it to our rotation. Very easy to follow.

I love fish tacos, and this was a good one. I added some garlic powder to the fish, and increased the spices as noted. I skipped the avocado, as I don't care for it, and used sour cream mixed with lime juice instead. A very good meal, it was satisfying, yet still felt light. Thanks for posting!
