    Something else. The extra juice is a blessing. I placed the mixture into a colander to drain it, over a pan. Then, I took the juices and simmered them down over medium-heat, uncovered. A few small dollops of sour cream, heating it through, and then I had an absolutely luscious creamy sauce for the tacos. Why pour it down the drain? Sheesh.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Made it vegetarian. I love this recipe. Use shallots or red onions instead of leeks. Use Poblano chillis instead of Anaheim. Use canned chopped tomatoes, drained, instead of fresh. Use store bought chucky salsa as a topping. Etcetera, etcetera. My friends love it with Pico de Gallo and guacamole.  -  29 Sep 2008


    We didn't think these were so great...very bland. About all I tasted in my taco were the toppings- avocado and cheese- the fish was tasteless. I thought from reading the recipe it would be alot spicier. I would recommend using a lot more spices, other than just cumin, and maybe a hotter pepper. I've never had an Anaheim pepper before this, but to me it was very similar to a bell pepper- I thought it would be more like a chilli pepper or jalapeno.  -  29 Sep 2008
