So, what’s the fish taco recipe?? Are you gonna make me search it?
No searching necessary………here is the recipe and they are terrific!
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup beer
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 lime, juiced
1 jalapeno pepper, minced
1 teaspoon minced capers
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed
1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1 quart oil for frying
2 pound cod fillets (or any mild white fish…..I have used just about every kind of white fish there is), cut into 2 to 3 ounce portions
1 (12 ounce) package corn tortillas (I use flour tortillas)
1/2 medium head cabbage, finely shredded
To make beer batter: In a large bowl, combine flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt. Blend egg and beer, then quickly stir into the flour mixture (don’t worry about a few lumps).
To make white sauce: In a medium bowl, mix together yogurt and mayonnaise. Gradually stir in fresh lime juice until consistency is slightly runny. Season with jalapeno, capers, oregano, cumin, dill, and cayenne.
Heat oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Dust fish pieces lightly with flour. Dip into beer batter, and fry until crisp and golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Lightly fry tortillas; not too crisp. To serve, place fried fish in a tortilla, and top with shredded cabbage, and white sauce. Then on top of this, we put homemade pica de gallo sauce.
Pica de Gallo sauce
1 cup finely diced tomato
1 cup finely diced zucchini
1/2 cup finely chopped cilantro
1/2 cup salsa (your choice of hot or mild)
Note: We prefer to heat our tortillas , wrapped in foil, in the oven rather than frying them.
