Fish Tacos Takeout Recipe Makeover

Fish Tacos

The food truck trend offers everything from Korean-fusion tacos at Yumbii in Atlanta to traditional fish tacos at the Mariscos German trucks in San Diego. We decided to lighten the Baja fish taco because it's both mighty good and mighty fatty. The batter on the traditional fried fish soaks up fat, and then salt gets poured on afterward. We forgo the fryer, coat the fish with a bold spice rub, and then sauté it in a bit of oil. What you might miss in batter-crispness we make up for with a crunchy onion relish.
