by: baldguy54

Normally when I hear the words fish and taco used together in preparing a meal I get this uncontrollable urge to barf. But for some reason that didn't happen with this. Maybe it's the avacadoes or the fact that it's grilled. I'm actually going to try this after my next therapist visit. This could easily become one of my top 50 foods to eat every once in a while.
