Notes from the Test Kitchen:
If you like fish tacos with a little kick you will love these! The seasoning on the fish is great. But the sour cream/jalapeno sauce on top is fabulous and makes the taco. The sour cream is what holds the fresh sauce together. Even if you're not a fan of fish, I'd give these a try. The tilapia has a very mild flavor. Delish!
