This mouth watering dish is one of my personal favorites. The soft and delicate flavor of the fish is wonderfully crusted by the beer batter. Since I love toppings, I prefer to smother my taco with guacamole aside from its regular toppings â€“salsa and sour cream. For those who love their meals spicy, you can add some jalapeÃ±os.
1 can vegetarian refried beans
1/2 head green cabbage, shredded
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
3 limes, divided
3 cups fresh tomatoes, cored and diced
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onion
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley or cilantro
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
Salt and pepper
Canola oil, for frying
1 1/2 firm fish fillet
1 tablespoon Old Bay seafood seasoning
1 1/2 cups flour, plus some for dredging
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/3 cup water
1/2 Â teaspoon chili powder
1 bottle Negra Modelo beer (12 ounces)
1 large egg
16 corn tortillas
Sour cream, for topping
In a bowl, mix the cabbage, red onion and the juice of 2 lemons. Set aside 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. Set aside.
In another bowl, combine tomatoes, green onion, parsley, 2 tablespoons lime juice and garlic. Season it with salt and pepper. Refrigerate the salsa.
In a saucepan, heat the refried beans. Add water and a dash of hot sauce. Cook for around 3-5 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 250ËšF.
Make sure the fish fillets are dry. Season them with Old bay and salt.
Mix together beer, egg, flour cornstarch, chili powder. Add a dash of salt. Whisk until the lumps disappear.
Heat a large pot under medium heat and pour some frying oil around 2 inches deep.
Place 1/2 a cup of flour on a plate. Use this to dust the fish. Dip it into the batter and fry for 3-5 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. Do not crowd the pot while frying. Let the oil reheat in between batches.Â Keep the cooked fish in the oven so that it stays crisp, maximum 5-8 minutes.
In a skillet, heat the tortillas.
Glue two tortillas together using the refried beans so that it will not rip easily.
To eat, place fish and cabbage on a tortilla. Top with salsa and sour cream.
