Enchiladas Del Mar (Seafood Enchiladas)

“This recipe was in the Nov 2006 Bon Appetit magazine. I have not tried it but It sounded so good I told another member about it and she asked me to post it. When I make it I shall revise the intro! The recipe calls for Oaxacan Cheese or mozarilla - the computer will not accept Oaxacan Cheese - your choice whichever one you want to use.”
