Last year we were in San Diego for Josh's graduation from Marine Boot Camp and I really wanted to try these while I was there but didn't. Hmmmm not sure why, well any way I thought I'd try them at home since I've been eating so much fish lately and after a while you would like a change from just baking or grilling. I tried these both fried like listed below and also grilled for a lighter Taco.
These are so delicious. I would have never thought a fish taco would be so YUMMY! I will make these often I'm sure.
Adapted from here
3/4 cup AP flour
1/4 cup corn meal
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup Sprite *my change*
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 lime, juiced
1/4 jalapeno pepper, minced No SEEDS
1/4 Anaheim pepper, minced NO SEEDS
1 pinch salt
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1 quart oil for frying
1 pound cod fillets, or Tilapia cut into 2 to 3 ounce portions (any white fish)
1 (12 ounce) package corn tortillas or homemade ones
You can also serve these on flour tortillas
1 pkg of slaw mix
DirectionsTo make batter: In a large bowl, combine flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt. Blend egg and sprite, then quickly stir into the flour mixture (don't worry about a few lumps).
To make white sauce: In a medium bowl, mix together sour cream and mayonnaise. Gradually stir in fresh lime juice until consistency is slightly runny. Season with jalapeno, oregano, cumin, dill, and cayenne.
The top photo is the fish made in a grille pan on the stove.
Heat oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Dust fish pieces lightly with flour. Dip into batter, and fry until crisp and golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Lightly fry tortillas; not too crisp. For the regular fish just fry in little bit of oil and butter, about 4 minutes on each side until brown and flaky. To serve, place fried fish in a tortilla, and top with shredded cabbage, and white sauce.
