Baja-style fish tacos have become increasingly popular over the last 10-15 years. The grilled fish wrapped in tortillas make a great summer dinner. When it's cold out and the hubby isn't too keen on getting outside to grill, we make a Southern version - Baja-Style Fried Catfish Tacos with slaw.
Making pork tamales is a multi-day process, so it really lends itself to a weekend kitchen project. It's not hard, but it does take a lot of time. The first day, I marinated my pork roast. The second day, I actually roasted the pork all day. The third day, I actually assembled and made my tamales, including soaking my corn husks and making my masa.
