    * Choose food that can be served at room temperature
    * Serve finger foods or foods that require only one utensil
    * Put out a bowl of wet naps

    1 sprinkle Al Pastor Seasoning (both sides)
    Cook fish on both sides for approx. 3-5 minutes depending on size of piece.

    1 each Warm tortilla
    1 spoodle Shredded lettuce

    1 each small ramekin ranchero sauce.

    To make fish tacos, place tortilla on cutting board. Place lettuce in middle of tortilla, tomato slices on top and then fish strip and avocado on top. Roll taco as tightly as possible, keeping seam down. Slice in half on a bias. Place first half of taco in center of plate, leaning other half against the first piece, bias side up.
