“A nice change, the orange/jalapeno/cilantro works well with the fish. The cooking time does not include the 20 minute marinade time. You can also do ahead by cooking the fish, flake it, mix with sauce and refrigerate until just before using, warm fish gently on a pan, then just place on tortillas and serve This is adapted from a Kraftcanada recipe”
