   Books by Putnam).
   
   Halve or quarter the fish filets so they will fit into
   a medium-sized saucepan. Combine the chicken broth,
   jalapeno juice and lime juice. Bring to a boil, then
   reduce heat to medium-low. Add the fish pieces and
   simmer 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat
   and let the fish cool in the liquid for 30 minutes.
   Remove the fish and pat dry with paper towels. Place
   the fish in a medium-size bowl and break into flakes
   with your fingers or a fork. Add the scallions and
   tomato and toss to mix. Season with the salt and
   pepper. Arrange 2 tablespoons of the fish filling down
   the center of each taco shell. Divide the lettuce
   among the shells and top each taco with 1 tablespoon
   tomatillo salsa.
