I live on the west coast of FL and fish tacos are a staple. I thought Rockaways had the best fish tacos until I made this recipe. I AM IN LOVE! I used grouper, 40% less sodium taco mix, used half the called for amount in the mayo/sour cream mix (otherwise too salty), sprinkled some cheddar cheese and served in flour tortillas. Absoulutely to die for!! Thank you!

unfortunately the fish I used detracted from this recipe. I had frozen boneless, skinless cod pieces that I'm afraid were just not the best quality (you could tell they were not frozen when the fish was fresh). In any case I was not overly excited about these fish tacos. I subbed a few things. I had old el paso seasoning on hand so that is what i used. I used corn tortillas. I also used low fat sour cream with just a dab of mayo blended in. we used napa cabbage, garden fresh tomatoes, onions, bananna peppers, salsa, and shredded cheese as toppings. Overall I was not very happy with this taco. Its not that it was bad. But the overall flavor was not appealing. I may try these again with a better piece of fish to see if that makes a difference. Despite the flavor issues I had, this was very easy to throw together.

Very good! Instead of making fish tacos I made fish tostadas and used the sour cream topping as a spread on the tostada. Everyone has asked for this recipe. You can also use shrimp instead of fish.

Fabulous recipe! Great way to eat healthy! I used non-fat mayo and sour was great! I also used cod that I had in the freezer. Will make again!

Good recipe! I used catfish nuggets for the fish. Added a can of beer to the marinade and used warmed fresh corn tortillas instead of taco shells. Delicious.

This is an excellent healthy dish. I used talapia and it was outstanding. I may never go back to chicken.

This is truly fantastic! My husband had a craving for fish tacos like the one he would get on his surfing vacations! I did it! He loved them!

These were very good! We grilled halibut steaks and flaked them apart for the tacos. By using non-fat sour cream (no mayo!) and reduced-fat tortillas and cheese it turned out to be a very low-fat and delicious meal! We will definitely be having these again!
