Fish, especially cheap fish tacos, might not seem the most likely candidate for food porn, but to me they are thing of pure beauty. The crisp cabbage, the bright red and green salsas, the rainbow of trimmings. With my Baja salsa research expedition over, I'm spending Monday back in New York hungry for fish tacos, with nothing to satiate me but my pictures.  Above, a shrimp quesadilla fully loaded.  More after the jump.

The chaos of the fist taco plate becomes a thing of beauty. Note the plate covered by the plastic bag, seemingly all the rage amongst the Baja taco stands. Certainly not environmentally friendly, but clean, and easy to clean.
