Recall vacation fun with fish and chips, then tacos

Sally Pasley Vargas for the boston globe

As vacation memories fade, you can re-create the fish and chips you ate at a seaside restaurant with this healthier version. No need to sacrifice the crispy crust. Tweak the classic by replacing the fries with vegetable chips and baking the dish in the oven. Most root vegetables are good candidates, but cooking times vary depending on the thickness and type of vegetable. Potatoes and parsnips will take less time to turn crisp, for instance, than beets.

Extra fish goes into tacos with a quick herb salsa, some cabbage, and fresh cilantro heaped onto flour tortillas. As the family returns to the supper table, use this recipe as a template for taco night with other fillings and crunchy vegetables.
