Fish taco is low-fat, gluten-free

While the scope of Nick Rabar’s career has afforded him great range in the kitchen and considerable business expertise, it is ownership of his dishes that has brought him the deep satisfaction that attracted him to the kitchen almost 20 years ago.

“Being back in the kitchen keeps me connected to the ingredients that I love, allowing me to create excitement with each plate, ” said the chef, a Rhode Island television personality.

Nick’s passion for healthy food is evident as he creates this gluten-free Mahi Mahi Tacos recipe with Four Town Farm Corn & Peppadew Relish and Honey-Chipotle Vinaigrette & Baby Cilantro.

The wonderful combination of citrus, sweet, and spice add zip to this gluten-free, delicious low-fat fish taco.
