AW’s Fish Tacos

January 26, 2010

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup beer
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup Hellmans mayonnaise
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 jalapeño 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
  • 1 pound cod fillets, cut into 2 to 3 ounce portions
  • 1 (12 ounce) package corn tortillas or flour tortillas
  • 1/2 medium head cabbage, finely shredded
  1. 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).
  2. 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 jalapeño, capers, oregano, cumin, dill, and cayenne.
  3. Heat oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  4. Dust fish pieces lightly with flour. Dip into beer batter, and fry until crisp and golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Lightly fry tortillas (only if using corn tortillas); not too crisp. To serve, place fried fish in a tortilla, and top with shredded cabbage, and white sauce.  Can also add slice avocado for a different spin on the taste!
