The prototypical fish taco originated in Baja California, Mexico, and the preparation referred to in this country as "Baja-Style" is similar to what you might find on the Mexican peninsula. It usually involves deep-fried white-fleshed fish, shredded cabbage, and a creamy white sauce. This is the holy fish-taco trinity and as the dish continues to make its way outside of Mexico it has been brought into my house and is made least twice a month. Try this one on your family and friends out by the pool or on the patio. They will be nothing but impressed!
Tuesday marks 40 years since "Mama" Cass Elliot died at age 32. In honor of The Mamas & the Papas' singer, join us in remembering her and other stars who died too young, some at the height of their careers.
