This was quite good. It made it to my box. I cut the fish a little smaller than suggested so that my taco was easier to hold. I also added a little bit of mexican seasonings to the flour mixture just for flavor. I completly skipped the poppy dressing and used salsa on top only because we are mexican and thats how we eat everything!

This sounds so delicious, but I didn't want to have so many calories in just one taco... so I followed the recipe except I grilled the fish instead of frying and I subbed 1/2 cup of salsa for the dressing. I also used an extremely small amount of salt, just to season the fish before grilling (along with pepper). I The avocados drenched in lime were so good, and really made the whole meal. Thanks for a great base recipe!

Very easy recipe and very good! I used cod fish. I had green cabbage and that worked just fine. Instead of the poppy seed dressing, my hubby used Dorothy Lynch dressing and I used Chipolte Mayo.

I grilled the fish instead of frying it and used the Honey Poppy Seed Dressing from this website. Delicious!

I used a cole-slaw mix in place of the red cabbage. These were good - the avocados gave it a different twist. We used cod for our fish. We had margaritas to go with them.

This is delicious, I added salsa to ours too and it gave it that extra zip that may have been missing without it. I also forgot to buy red cabbage so had to use leaf lettuce instead and the lettuce worked really well.

So I just got done making this and it turned out pretty good. I used pollock and it was the first time I have ever eaten a fish taco. It's also the first time I've ever eaten any type of fish besides catfish. Needs a little work but definitely a keeper. Thank you!

this was yummy but could have had some more interesting flavours. I would make the proportions bigger, 6 serves for 5 people worked for me. The avacado and the fish really went well together and i think it was a yummy meal.
