    Chef Kate's Note:

    These are so easy and so good! And the fish and the salsa can be made ahead. If you like very spicy salsa, add more chipotle. But be careful--chipotles in adobo are HOT!

      Made for ZWT III. These are really delicious! The salsa is a tiny bit sweet, and very spicy, the fish is tangy and tender, and when you wrap it up into a tortilla with cilantro, well, it's just perfect! The only little change I made was that I couldn't find any really good looking halibut, so I went with grouper, which is my favorite fish anyway, so that worked out. :) Thanks for a great taco!

      I would not make this again. I was surprised, because I like all the ingredients used! This salsa was not liked by any of my family, unfortunately. The tequila is too strong, and the salsa was very watery. The fish was bland. Adding more spice to the fish might help things a bit, but the tequila in the salsa overpowers everything else you could put in the tacos. Sorry, but this recipe wasn't for us.

      We really enjoyed these! It's cold here, so rather than grilling, I lightly poached the fish in the lemon, lime and orange juices. The fish came out soft and really flavourful which worked well with the fantastic salsa! Great recipe. Thanks Chef Kate!
