Vegetarian 'Fish' Tacos (Zucchini 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. Vegetarian 'Fish' (Zucchini) Tacos: 2-3 small zucchini 1-2 eggs 1 1/2 cups Panko bread crumbs 1 tsp cumin 1 tsp oregano dash garlic powder dash dried lemon peel dash
