“I love these fish tacos. You can find them in many California areas. You can either order the fish grilled or fried and because I love deep fried food, it's always fried fish for me when ordering or making them. Besides the spicy cabbage slaw I also like to top the whole thing with mounds of salsa and taco sauce. Goes great with Pacifico!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small bowl, mix salsa and mayonnaise; set aside.
  2. In a Dutch oven or deep skillet, heat oil over medium high heat until it reaches 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). While the oil heats up, whisk beer, flour and salt in a medium bowl until smooth.
  3. Using a fork, coat fish pieces in batter. Working in 2 batches, slide coated fish into hot oil. Fry until golden, about 4 minutes per batch. Lift out with a slotted spoon and drain briefly on paper towels; keep warm.
  4. In a dry hot skillet, warm corn tortillas individually for 1-2 minutes per side. Stack on top of each other and keep warm in the oven.
  5. To assemble, place 2 corn tortillas each on 4 individual plates.
  6. Put 1/2 cup of cabbage on each tortilla. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of the salsa mixture over each one. Evenly distribute fish pieces over the salsa and cabbage. Serve with lime wedges.
