"Fish Veracruz is a traditional dish, but making it a filling for a taco is a different story. Tacos are snacks, but they can also be made into a meal. You can add slices of red and yellow bell pepper to add some sweetness and peppery notes. The Veracruz-style sauce traditionally accompanies red snapper, but it works well with any white-fleshed fish and of course with salmon. You can also tweak the recipe by adding some diced carrots and celery for added crunch."
