Ummm, what's the 4th item under Ingredients mean? "1/4 Cup plus..." What?? This is the most unprofessional/incomplete recipe I've ever read. How does one put the whole thing together? I KNOW I can do a better job of writing recipes, and I'm not a pro.

What do you do with the sour cream, lime juice and cumin mixture???? You don't say. Just say to refrigerate it. Does it go on top of the fish? What?
