Cap'n Crunch Cod (Fish) Tacos by Food Dudes

"I can't take credit for creating this recipe but I wanted to share as this dish is unbelievably good. It was created by the Food Dudes who run a Food truck here in Toronto. It is pretty easy to prep and can be sped up even more if you purchase premade components from the grocery store. It really comes down to how much time you have to get it all together."

    These were the best fish tacos I've ever had. I used catfish filets because they were on sale, but otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. I almost didn't end up using the guacamole because I didn't like the taste of it by itself, but I'm glad I did because it complimented the coleslaw and cap'n crunch breaded fish perfectly. Thanks for sharing this recipe- it was really tasty.
