This is a great recipe to try on someone who prefers not to eat fish. The flavor is not unlike a taco made from seasoned chicken. The recipe specifies warm soft flour tortillas, but crispy corn tortilla shells work well also. Do be careful not to overcook your fish. Overcooked fish always tastes dry and often rubbery.
