beer battered "white fish" tacos

i used grouper and mahi but any good white fish will do....

i first started by chopping the toppings...
- 1 head green cabbage
- 1 red onion
- 1 bundle of cilantro to add in the sauce and on top of taco


now its time to make the sauce pictured on the left. this is a baja style sauce typical of the taco you would find in socal..

- equal portions of mayo and sour cream
- juice of 1 big lime or 2 small dry limes
- zest of 1 lime
- couple heavy dashes of hot sauce
- 3 cloves of garlic
- half the bundle of chopped cilantro

now we work on the fish


mahi already sliced waiting for the grouper


nice looking grouper

mahi was on sale at $8 a pound and bought earlier and sliced so close up of the mahi

now we cut the fish into strips about 2 inches long and a 1/2 to an inch thick and soak in milk for about 15min. this will remove a lot of "fishyness" and make the meat like butter



heat canola or peanut oil to 350-375... or you can tell its ready when you stick a wood utensil in the oil and bubbles form around it instantly. you can put a drop of batter and see how it fries up to tell how hot the oil is.



now its time to make the beer batter. always make right before you fry the fish and use ice cold beer. i also like to put the bowl of batter in a bigger bowl with some ice in it to keep it cold.

we had a lot of fish so i doubled this amount but..
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- zest of 1 lime
- season to your taste. i put about 8tbls of seafood magic
- 12 oz of dark beer



mix well... the consistency should be a tad bit thicker than pancake batter

now set up a system where you have 2 tongs. one to use for the fish and batter.... and one to pull fish out of the fryer with


i also like to keep my fish separate so i know what i am frying



slowly put the battered fish into the oil. each chunk should take about 4-5 min


drain on paper towels


assemble tacos and enjoy

looks good, next time try some jalapeno slaw in them. I made fish and chips last night, and brisket tacos for lunch.

fvck, just drooled on my keyboard!

question, what do you do with the leftover oil from frying? i have deep frying and always pan fry with just a little oil because i never know what to do with the leftover. i know you can reuse sometimes, but there is always some sledge left you need to discard. putting down your drain is asking for trouble. with bacon and ground meat grease i have a can in the freezer i put it in there and then toss out when full.

That grouper makes me drool! I hardly ever eat fried food any more, but might have to make these this weekend.

I just do the whole filet, Fish & Chips style. Little pieces are irritating.

i do the same... i save almost every jar I buy. If i have very little oil(usually olive or grape-seed ) from frying chicken breasts or something i will wash it down the drain but never anything like the fish fry or bacon grease... its always jarred and thrown away.

i also started to use rice flower instead of the all purpose... i like the way it crisps up more and is lighter
