Very tasty! Breading was very good. I would use it for other dishes with fish or chicken.

Excellent! Found halibut pieces and ends at a reasonable price at our local fish market. The sauce was excellent. Fresh salsa Fresca with ingredients picked out of the garden, cabbage and avocado put this fish taco over the top. Thank you for the recipe!

I have a few substitution to cut my prep time, like fresh guacamole from the grocery store but other than that were great. I could have increase seasoning to batter by about 1/2.

Made the tacos for my family very unsure if they would like it. It was a huge hit. I used swai fish insread of cod. Flavor was great. My son said this recipe is a keeper!
Was just alright. Will try to make it again. The wife enjoyed it more than I did. However there were leftovers. So I gauge a good meal by the amount of leftovers

Delicious! I liked the tips about using 2 different hands for batter & panko.

fish turned out fantastic. Changed up the dressing and sides a bit but excellent way to prepare cod.

Loved the crunch! Definitely need to season fish prior. I would make it again.

Excellent ...salted the fish as others have indicated. Added some extra sides and whole family liked it. Was a bit time consuming but taste was worth it. Sauce was nice made a broccoli carrot and red cabbage slaw

Great recipe. Easy to make recipe. In addition to seasoning the batter, I recommend seasoning the fish as well prior to adding to the batter. I also decided to make a slaw with the cabbage.
