"AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS! We had to sprinkle a little salt and drizzle more lime juice on the top. Definitely a keeper. "

This is a simple recipe but, it could have used a kick. I really enjoyed it but, next time I will be adding some more jalapenos. It was a fabulous mix of flavors/texres and i would defnilty make it again.


Really tasty and very filling for few calories. I made some Spanish rice for the rest of the family to round out the meal. The lime made a big difference. I almost added some salt, but the lime juice was a better choice. I also did add on tablespoon of oil on the coleslaw, but divided over 4 portions I didn't feel too guilty. Would make this again, possibly with shredded chicken, or cooked ground turkey.


This is an excellent recipe - we've made it several times and everyone loves it - even the kids that don't like fish!


This was an excellent dinner. I really enjoyed it and the clean-up mess was minimal.One thing that I added (I know, more calories...not much though) was a little olive oil and vinegar to the cabbage mix. It gave it a little zing!Overall, very delicious.

This is a great starter recipe, I have made it twice but didn't follow exact recipe. I used refried beans, added salmon with onions & pepper mixed to top, placed two sardines on top of each, added shredded cabbage without additions, a little cheese (to make kid-friendly) and a dollop of peach pineapple chipotle sauce and cooked in the oven. My kids made this meal for lunch, quick & easy and very yummy. Great way to get omega 3s into our diet, with minimal oven time during the warm spring/summer months.
