    Very tasty! Fish sauce made great combination .

    These are so easy and so tasty! Very impressive meal, lots of color and flavor. I used creol seasonings mix for the fish instead of her dried seasoning suggestions. Also, served with Natasha's peach salsa, found on the same website. Superb!

    It was very yummy i did not have the sour cream so I had to make a mayo sauce but next time I will most definitely do the sour cream I bet is will be 10 times better my client loved it she was about to pick it up and eat it so that’s a plus♥️

    This recipe is quite good exactly as written (except that I couldn't find cotija and used fresh pressed ricotta instead - great sub). I wasn't too sure about the sriracha in the sauce - seemed like a more traditional Mexican-inspired ingredient could be used, but it was really good. The recipe is a keeper! Note that the calorie count for this recipe seems wrong on the Yummly site where it indicates 1,000 calories. According to the author, each taco comes in at about 170 calories.

    I've used grouper, cod and shrimp and it turned out amazing. I substituted Franks hot sauce and greek yogurt instead of sriracha and sour cream. it's a big hit for dinners at home.

    I tried the fixings and sauce with frozen breaded fish filets. Added cumin to the sauce. No cotijo in the house, but I used some feta instead and didn't add any other salt. Kind of a fusion effect but delicious.

    Will definitely make this again. Great fish tacos without needs to fry the fish!!

    Delicious. Even our picky kids liked it. Was nervous about the sauce being too spicy for them, but it isn't that spicy at all - just good flavor. I was going to cut the batch in half since it says it's a party size recipe, but glad I didn't. There was very little leftover from our young family of 5. Will be made frequently at our house.
