  1. I substituted cilantro for the parsley and liked it a bit more!

  2. I think my comment just disappeared.. argh, so apologies if I post twice Liuba! Just wanted to say that these tacos look amazing… so delicious! I’m not sure if I can get mahi mahi here in Australia though, so I’m wondering if you know a substitute fish? It’s firm, white fleshed fish I imagine. Thanks hon! xx

    • I think mahi mahi might be a Hawaiian fish but maybe it’s just the name. Uncooked it’s pinkish-white in color but once cooked it’s white. Any white flaky fish would do for fish tacos. Tilapia would work nicely. I forgot about these tacos I think it’s time to make them again!

  3. Wow, this sounds so good Liuba! I love baja fish tacos but I’ve never tried a gorgeous crumbed version like this. Definitely trying this recipe soon…. though I’ve never heard of mahi mahi (not sure if it’s available in Australia). I’m imagining it’s a firm white fish, but do you know of any substitutes? Thanks lovely! x

  8. Good recipe. I love tacos! No good Mexican restaurants in France unfortunately (except in Paris I’m sure)
