I suppose that I can't put this off any longer. The discussion about high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) can really get people riled up. At virtually every single talk that I give, someone in the audience asks about it. Something seemingly simple like, "What about high fructose corn syrup?"

I think you should, but not for the reasons put forth on myriad blogs that demonize this sweetener as being responsible for the obesity epidemic, diabetes, hyperactivity and numerous other maladies. While there is some evidence that the higher levels of fructose may be of concern, I don't see that research as being conclusive. My reading of the literature at this time does point to some very worrisome issues that implicate all added sweeteners as being a major contributor to obesity.

I love tacos and there are endless variations. After creating the Asparagus Salsa recipe I decided that it would be fantastic on fish tacos and I was not disappointed. The salsa is better the second day, so if you can make it in advance (you can do the fish in advance too), you won't be disappointed.
