A note about serious food allergies

Fish tacos may have passed the Rubicon from hip to ordinary, but that doesn't make them any less delicious. This variation has flaky, healthy salmon topped with a delicious corn salsa, crumbly queso fresco, and, for a slight kick (or more, depending on your tastes), crispy jalapeño pieces. These hand-held flavor delights are also easy and quick to make, a weeknight dinner of dreams. Who needs to be hip, when you're satisfied and full?
