Fish Tacos [split from LA]

FYI, the Enseneda style taco is not an authentic Mexican fish taco. It was a taco designed to appease Canadian and American tourists used to fried fish. The traditional Baja fish taco is not fried. I love the larded Ensenada style taco - but it is a gringo style and not authentic. Over the past 25 years I go to Mexico twice a year and every restaurant and hotel I talked to have told me they serve the fried fish taco to make the gringos happy.............Mexicans in Ensenada and Cabo San Lucas now embrace this dish, but if you go to Puerto Vallarta and beyond they roll their eyes............
