Used Dover sole instead of tilapia, the fish was soooo good. The slaw was okay, and the smoothie delicious. Next time, I would add more red pepper, but otherwise I liked it a lot.

This Ian the bet thing I’ve ever eaten. The smoothies were an odd partner but were welcomed with an open mouth.

If I had 1/2 an extra star, I'd give it 2.5. It was good - but wouldn't say we liked it a lot.

Enjoyed every bite! My husband used cilantro/lime marinated chicken and that worked beautifully too. Want to serve this to friends!
