We just love the fish tacos on the menu at Cactus Club up here in Vancouver and I finally decided to try making them myself. Searched here and elsewhere on the net and then used them as a guide. First time was a big success and I've tweaked the recipe a bit from there and the concenus here is that everyone likes them better than the original at the Cactus Club.
