This week we’ll take a break and change it up a bit with a pescaderian recipe from Jo Ann Gantus, one of the familiar morning faces at Equinox Pasadena. Jo Ann or as I affectionally call her, Mamma Jo Jo made these terrific Tilapia Fish Tacos that I had to ask for the recipe. Let me know what you think. They are super easy to make and taste delicious. Thank you Mamma Jo Jo!
