This taco bar is fun for the whole family. With a mild and flaky rockfish that is perfect for tacos, a creamy avocado crema, a sweet corn salsa, and all the fixings, your kids will be asking for seconds and thirds! And the best part about a taco bar? You can leave the more "adult" flavors on the side so everyone can customize their meal to their liking.
For the Tacos:
1-1½ pounds rockfish fillet Available in Our Seafood Subscription Box
¼ teaspoon onion powder
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon cumin
¼ teaspoon chili powder
Salt and pepper
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Hard corn shells
For the Avocado Crema:
1 ripe avocado
1 cup crema or sour cream
1 teaspoon lime juice
¼ teaspoon salt

1 cup frozen corn kernels
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
2 medium tomatoes, diced
⅓ cup red onion, diced
1-2 teaspoons lime juice, to taste
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
Salt and pepper, to taste
Tortilla chips, for extra salsa
Heat oil in a small saute pan over medium-high heat. Add corn kernels and saute for 4-5 minutes until the corn kernels are a little caramelized. Remove from heat and set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine tomatoes, red onion, lime juice, cilantro and cooled corn. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
MAKE AVOCADO CREMA
