Beer Battered Fish Tacos

March 14, 2020

 

 

Crispy Beer Battered Fish Fillets in tacos with bright, fresh & spicy toppings instantly transports me to beaches in Mexico. If you're like me and day dreaming of a tropical escape, let this dish take you there.

 

Canadian Canola Oil is perfect for frying, its neutral 

in flavour and has a high smoke point. 

 

Cod, Haddock or Halibut are the most common, as they are mild in flavour but I've also enjoyed Trout and Salmon. For a vegetarian option try oyster mushrooms!

 

Have fun with toppings too! I love a smear of sour cream, thin slices of avocado, pickled onions, shredded hard cheese, cilantro leaves, a squeeze of lime & a drizzle of hot sauce.

  5. Heat to 375 degrees.
