A very nice recipe I found while searching cooking websites. Would be nice for those summer weekend get-togethers.

This was GREAT! I made the recipe exactly as quoted, but I did add an extra 1/2 teaspoon of salt. I used tuna because I knew my kids would eat it up, and we all did. The 3 tablespoons of lime juice added excellent taste. The only problem I had was that my daughter, wanted to eat all the strawberries, but I still got my share. This defineately is a keeper, and thanks for the recipe.

LauraLie41...Another 5 star recipe!!! I absolutely thought this was the "cream of the crop"....It is a recipe that I will serve to my rich and successful sisters and their hubbies the next time they come to my house!!! I have to be honest, though....My kids would only eat the strawberries and the pretzels....But it's because they're kids and they don't quite appreciate the "finer things" in life yet...Also, I did add more salt & pepper after it came out of the oven (broiler), and I also added a pat of butter on top of the fish before I put it in the oven (broiler). I can honestly say, though, that this is a marvelous recipe, A KEEPER FOR ME, and I will serve this for the adults I want to impress! Good recipe, and SO EASY!!! The mild "tanginess" from the margarita mix along with the lime juice was a winner to my taste buds! Thank you so much for sharing! I will make it every time I want to impress someone!!! God bless, Lauralie41!!! (And, GOOD JOB finding this one...) :)
