Fish Tacos
I spent about a year experimenting with various fish taco recipes, and this one came out on top. I follow it to the letter, except that I have started substituting tilapia for the cod. The baja sauce is awesome!

Corn and Black Bean Salad
Very, very good. I made a few changes... grilled 2 ears of fresh corn instead of using canned, and also cut up 2 grilled green onions to mix with the beans & corn. (Also used homemade beans, which always helps!) In addition, misread the recipe and stirred the cilantro right into the dressing instead of using as a garnish, but since I was serving it right away instead of refridgerating it didn't matter. Finally, added the zest & juice of one lime to the balsamic mixture, which added a nice depth of flavor. However, the key to this recipe is the spice combination, which is right on... I will be using this dressing a lot!

Grilled Cilantro Salmon
I was kind of nervous making this... thought it would come out way too sweet. It was actually just right, although the honey really overpowered the other flavors, even though I only used about a 1/2 cup. In the future, would add white wine and maybe some red pepper flakes to cut the sweetness. Also, I used this marinade (in a separate bowl) for a pork chop for my boyfriend who doesn't eat fish... he liked it. Finally, I must have used a small salmon filet, because 5 min per side was too much. 3 would have been better.
