Essential no. 5: Fish Taco

From Sunset's new essentials

These crisp little handheld tortillas are topped with snapper, avocado, pickled onions, and cabbage or lettuce. They're a popular street food in the Baja, and they're conquering the West.

Serve them for lunch or as a crisp and palate-refreshing snack after Thanksgiving. The sauce is quite hot, so use sparingly.
