* To make it lighter/healthier, double up the lime and jalapeno juice. After you've prepped the chipotle with some of the juice, add some olive oil, and use the rest to marinade the fish. I George Forman'ed the fish, but fry pan or baking/broiling would work too. If you have fast fingers, and you want to make it easier, cut the fillets after frying.
* If your palate is sensitive to spicy, drop the jalapeno. If jalapeno is too sour for you, replace with smaller(!) amount of habanero.
* If you have a vegetable/fruit juicer, it cuts down on the prep time of the lime and jalapeno/habanero.
* Side this with avacado or guac.
* Side this with (easy) beans and rice. Remove 1/3 cup of water before boiling. When adding brown rice, throw in a can of black beans. Do this before cooking the fish, since brown rice takes about 25-30 minutes to soak up the water. Some people subtract more water and also throw in a can of stewed tomatoes. I like to add garlic powder.
* Heat up the corn tortillas before serving. If you don't have a tortilla warmer, then make sure you fold in half before they cool.
* Capers are just a garnish, don't worry if you can't find any.
* If you are opposed to beer, use ginger ale.
* If you don't have cod, any white fish will do. Some people have had success with salmon.
* If cutting cabbage is a pain for you, use a package of mix and serve cole slaw, tossing the cole slaw packet.
* Add cilantro and/or pink onion as a garnish or into the cabbage.
