Fish Tacos

Last night was supposed to be my second night of “Cooking For Foodies” cooking class, but there was a gas leak and class was canceled. I returned as much of the food as I could, but I was stuck with 18 portions of red snapper. What is a girl to do?
Invite all her friends over and make the best fish tacos ever!

As requested here is the recipe.
