Baja Fish Tacos

I love fish tacos so I have decided to try out a new recipe. It has been years since I beer battered anything but I am pleased that it turned out well.

Beer Battered Baja Fish Tacos

1 cup all purpose flour.
1tbs Cornstarch
1 bottle of beer – 6 ounces to mix with flour
Mahi Mahi –I used Trader Joes Mahi Mahi and it was a pound and a half package
1 tsp Mexican seasoning
Vegetable/canola oil for frying.
Extra flour for dredging the fish
Sides and toppings to your liking
(I used cabbage, tomatoes, green onions)

Mix the beer and the flour together and add 1 tsp of seasoning.  Then mix 1 tbs corn starch with 3 ounces of beer. Whisk cornstarch mixture into flour mixture.
Leave in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
Heat the oil to 375 in a good  deep pan. Make sure the oil is about 4-5 inches deep.
When the oil gets to 375, dust the fish strips in the flour and shake off the excess.
Dip the fish into the batter and coat well shaking off any extra.
Drop the coated fish into the oil very carefully, that oil is super hot!
Work fast until you have about 4 fish strips frying in the pot. Make sure not to put too many in or this will cool down the oil and the fish won’t get brown and crunchy.
Move the fish around with a metal slotted spoon or some tongs until golden brown. Lift each piece out and let them sit on a wire rack to drain.

Baja Sauce
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons Mexican seasoning*
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • Dash of Chipotle Tabasco sauce
  • Dash of garlic salt
Combine all ingredients; stir well.
