    1. Preheat oven to 190 C / gas mark 5.
    2. Season the halibut with garlic, salt and pepper; cook in microwave until slightly cooked, about 2 minutes. Mix together the spring onion, green pepper, fresh coriander, soured cream, mayonnaise and 120g cheese in a bowl. Gently fold the halibut into the mixture.
    3. Lightly grease a large oven-proof baking dish. Pour 1/2 of enchilada sauce over the bottom of the baking dish.
    4. Pour the rest of the sauce into a bowl. Dip the tortillas, one at a time, into the sauce to lightly coat. Spoon the halibut in equal portions into the centre of each tortilla. Make the enchiladas by tightly rolling the tortillas and place seam-side down in the baking dish. Pour the remaining enchilada sauce over top of the enchiladas. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Cover the dish with foil.
    5. Bake for 45 minutes. Top with avocado slices to serve.

    I love this recipe, I have personally made it at least a dozen times and have given it to many of my friends to try. However I havent tryed changing the recipe or altering it in any way. I dont think that you could judge a recipe poorly because you made the mistake of changing it and it didnt turn out well.  -  09 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Delicious... This recipe was very tasty.The only thing I changed was that I used the Texas Enchilada sauce recipe I found on this website instead of canned.Sure to be a pleaser with friends and family.  -  22 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a very good recipe, I would surely make it again.. however, I think I will use real onion as well as green.. and you don't need to mico the fish ahead of time. 45 minutes was more than enough for my fish to cook all the way through.  -  16 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
