I could be wrong, but as the circuit is 30A, I would be hesitant to put anything rated less than 30A in the line.

That is correct. 20A outlet needs to be protected by a 20A breaker or fuse.

Edit: The only place that overrated fuse protection is allowed is branch circuits with several 15 amp outlets protected by a 20 A breaker. If the 15 amp outlet is on a circuit by itself. it would require 15A protection.
