Loved the salsa and slaw, but I think next time I'll use seasoned soy crumbles instead of the grilled veggies. Just didn't taste like a "taco."

I think it would have been better if the grocery list had worked properly. It left off the cabbage, so I didn't have the ingredient to make the slaw.

Loved the slaw and salsa. Will use another white fish (not tilapia). Needs to broil 3-4 min on EACH side.

This was surprisingly tasty! I was worried it wouldn't be as good because there wasn't anything "creamy" (like sour cream) to hold it together, and the flavors seemed a little too simple, and the fish too deceptively straightforward to make....BUT somehow, it all came togther in a very flavorful way! I was relieved, because we were having people over for dinner, and they liked it! :)
