    I had left-over baked cod which isn't particularly tropical, but it worked! We liked all the stuff in the salsa. I think you could use sour cream or ranch dressing for the mayo and buttermilk, and of course all that garlic makes it so good!

    Wow! This was a great recipe! Made this last night with Ahi tuna. I did make a couple of changes, we made the sauce with yogurt instead of mayo, as we don't use a lot of mayo in my house! The sauce was delicious with the yogurt! 2 of my 3 kids ate up the tacos no problem, my middle one didn't but he seems to be going through a change in food preferences. Also we didn't know what kind of spices to put on the fish, so I went through my spices and put on some that smelled like they would go with the Ahi tuna, and it came out fine! I also used low-fat buttermilk instead of regular. My husband agreed that we should now try this recipe with mahi-mahi. Loved this, thanks for posting!

    So happy to post a glowing first review of this recipe. We had it for Father's Day during ZWT and loved it. We grilled mahi-mahi and it was perfect. Thanks for posting.
