This was excellent!! I made very minor changes: cooked the red cabbage in a pan for about 5 min, just to soften slightly. Used fat-free sour cream. Also, added cilantro to the slaw and as a garnish on top. I don't believe the recipe instructions included what to do with the cilantro. This was the perfect dinner for a hot day!! Read More

I make fish tacos all of the time with tilapia sprinkled with a Louisanna style rub! My husband loves a little kick so I am anxious to try this recipe! I would use Greek yogurt instead of sour cream though. Read More

My family loves this recipe! We are not big fish eaters usually, but this dish has become a regular in our house. I don't like having to deal with the fresh jalapeno, so I subed for the jarred sliced kind. I just added the juice to the oil and it tasted great without too much heat. I also chopped some of the jalapenos up and added them to my sour cream mixture along with a couple of tablespoons of the jalapeno juice. I like to go ahead and add the cilantro directly to mixture too. Instead of cabbage I chop up romaine and add on top of the sour cream sauce and fish :)This recipe is also great with pacific snapper!

I made these even healthier since we had the gas grill going with some corn cobs and grilled the fish. Just put the slices on an oiled foil lined cookie sheet and drizzled some fresh lime and creole seasoning. They cooked up to a perfect flakiness at 425 degrees in only ten minutes. The sauce just needed more flavor was very limey tasting and I had some chipotle peppers in the fridge so I chopped one and put it in the sauce that went on the slaw boy was that ever good but not too spicy. I made my slaw up early in the day and gave it time to marinate. I did use the plain sauce as a topping without the chipotle in it. These were so very good and really easy to make and. Served with some juicy Florida corn on the cob. Read More

I made this with shrimp instead of fish because that's what everyone in my family likes... I used Blackened Seasoning on the shrimp when I sauteed it, the rest of the recipe was the same...loved it! My son who is home from college saw me making the sour cream/lime dressing and said the restaurant where he works (in Lubbock, TX) makes this to serve on enchiladas. It was great on the slaw and as a topping for the tacos. Will definitely try this with Tilapia too. Great recipe! Read More

This was amazing! I was somewhat worried if I would like the flavors together but everything came out great. The jalapeno really made it over the top yummy. I will make this again soon! Thanks for sharing! Read More

Pretty much stuck to the plan, with one exception. We used white corn tortillas instead of flour. We are watching calories, and every little bit helps. Great recipe, easy to put together, and tasted great. Thanx for posting this. Read More
