Fish Tacos: FAIL!!

The other night, Norris and I planned to go out to dinner, but couldn't decide where to go, even after getting in the car. We wanted Mexican, but we have very different ideas of what good Mexican food is--I like the non-chain type restaurants, while he prefers On the Border. We agreed on Jose Pepper's because I do love their chicken and avocado enchilada and their Corona Shrimp Tacos are really good, too! I decided I needed to do something similar at home, so I decided to try some fish tacos at home.

FAIL!!!

If you have a good fish taco recipe, please share! These tasted like they had too much cumin in them or something. I had one bite, passed it to Norris, and ate a salad instead. Not good!! I even know I like fish tacos because I've had them before! Anyway, I'd be willing to try them again (although not for a couple weeks after the bad taste of those), so if you have something you'd be willing to share, please do.

I know exactly how you feel. I too have had great fish tacos and wanted to replicate them at home. I took one bite and almost gagged. I didn't eat another bite and have yet to try making them again:) Hope you find a great recipe so we can both enjoy fish tacos at home!

Zach and I made some awesome fish tacos once, and we used your southwest cole slaw as a topper and it was great! We just marinated some white fish (think we used tilapia) in some jalapeno, garlic, cilantro, lime juice & olive oil then put it on the grill in foil. We built the tacos in homemade tortillas and topped with your slaw and this salsa: http://bit.ly/dcaFyP
