I made this with tilapia, and all the flavors worked wonderfully together. I think the thicker cod or halibut would work, but I prefer a thinner fish. I served with some salsa and sour cream. I think this would make wonderful fish tacos, and I'll re-use this recipe for that. Thanks so much for the recipe!
