These tacos are fresh, light and always a crowd pleaser. Also, they're good straight from the oven or served room temperature, making it practical and easy to feed a large group.
Technique tip: Never take your eyes off the broiler. The cook time is so short you've got to watch it!
Swap option: You can swap cauliflower and tofu for the fish for a great vegetarian option. Or change it up with shrimp and chicken.
