Yum (but WOW were these ever S-P-I-C-Y!!!)! My hubs and I enjoy heavily spiced foods, but even he commented that these would knock anyone's socks off lol. :) Having said this, I'd change nothing. Simply put, you either enjoy spice or you don't. If not, skip this recipe in favor of one that better suits your tastes. The spiciness of the fish combined with the fresh salsa is what makes this recipe unique. If you alter ANYTHING, you won't appreciate this for what it is (but that's just my opinion). NOTE: If you can find jicama, DON'T SKIP IT!!! It is ever so slightly sweet and as many others have noted, adds a nice contrast / crunch to the salsa. I also strongly suggest that you GRILL your corn, allow it to cool slightly and then gently cut the kernels off the cobb. There's just something about slightly charred, grilled corn that says summer is here and this is the perfect use for it. Other than halving this and adding a touch more lime juice / pinch of salt to the salsa, I made no significant changes. I will however reduce the amount of cilantro next time (a cup's worth was a tad overpowering, IMHO). A squirt of sour cream and fresh lime were refreshing touches and are a MUST even for us folks who easily tolerate heat. Thanks SO much for sharing your recipe with the AR community, Louise. I'm sad that I waited so long to give this a try! :-)
