Vegetarian 'Fish' Tacos (Zucchini Tacos)

Having been a vegetarian for nearly 20 years there are very few meals for which I have been unable to find a decent vegetarian substitute - at least for things I actually want to eat. The 'fish taco' phenomenon, however, has intrigued and eluded me ... until now.

Not long ago I visited some dear friends out West. We ate at a darling little place called Sena on Myrtle in charming Monrovia. Everyone ordered the fish tacos. While perusing the menu I saw something that sparked an epiphany: zucchini tacos. I ordered them of course. They were everything their carnivorous counterparts were ... well except for that whole meat thing.
They were delicious. And ever since, I have been on a quest to perfect a homemade 'healthy' baked version that my family would enjoy.
