This recipe was delicious. And I don't know what ASIMPSON7 is talking about in their review. Why is it hard to understand where the calories come from? There's oil there's salad dressing there's cheese plus the fish and tortillas. You learn something new every day I suppose. Yes that pizza you've been enjoying all of these years it HAS calories!

Even my wife who pnly likes reef fish loved this recipe. It helps to temper the strong taste if when you cube the fish you cut out the dark meat right around the backbone area Read More

Delicious recipe! Great change of pace for fish. And it's easy to cube the fish if you use kitchen shears. Read More

These are very good. I fed them to a teenager at work who made faces when I printed out the recipe and she didn't know that they were made with fish. I didn't have any kingfish but I did have some marlin in the freezer I think any firm fleshed fish would work well.... Read More

Had always heard that the only thing you could do with Kingfish was smoke it. A friend gave us fresh caught filets and I had to try this recipe. LOVED it. Very simple and very tasty. Read More

Very good recipe. I used corn tortillas instead of flour and they were amazing! Also don't understand where the 900 calories came from since everything except the fish and tortillas have none! Read More

These are EXCELLENT!! I have never had Kingfish before but there is a good supply where I live in FL. Although I'm a fish lover I have to admit the fillet smelled a bit fishy to me so I soaked it in lemon juice as Charlie posted in 'Grilled Kingfish.' Please forgive me 1023 I usually don't alter recipes & then rate. Anyway these enchiladas are fabulous & easy. I absolutely will make them again! Thanks for the tip about removing the dark meat for we Kingfish newbies & thanks for sharing!! Read More

NIKI W thanks for the tip using shears / scissors. It’s no fun trying to cube uncooked kingfish with a dull knife. Also do not substitute raspberry vinaigrette for Italian dressing. Gave it a funky taste. And I think I should have cooked it for 5 more minutes. But it wasn’t too bad. Read More
