In the word's of my little brother these taco's are "freakin' bomb!" and I would have to agree.

The marinade for the fish was really tasty. The chipotle crema topped these tacos off really nicely. This is a great dish to serve the next time you have a group of friends over. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
