Kanpachi Fish Taco Kit for 2-3

This is definitely not your average fish taco! Premium, sustainably farmed Hawaiian Kanpachi (amberjack) is tucked into a handmade tortilla and topped with a variety of well-balanced sauces, salsas and garnishes!

The traditional flavors of Mexico’s coastal regions are on full display at Holbox, located inside Los Angeles’ must-visit Mercado la Paloma. Holbox is the passion project of chef Gilberto Cetina, who was born on the Yucatan Peninsula, spent his childhood diving for conch and octopus, and learned to cook alongside his father at his family’s LA restaurant, Chichen Itza. In 2017 he opened Holbox, a seafood stand that focuses on fresh ingredients, bold flavors, and simple preparations. These dishes will transport you straight to the Mexican coast!
