Description

Crispy, light fried halibut is the star of these amazing tacos!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE BEER BATTER:
  • 1 cup Flour
  • 1-½ cup Pale Ale
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Onion Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Cayenne
  • FOR THE FISH:
  • 2 cups Vegetable Oil, For Frying
  • Kosher Salt And Black Pepper To Season Fish
  • 1-½ pound Fresh Halibut, Cut Into 6 Strips
  • ½ cups Flour
  • ½ teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • FOR ASSEMBLING THE TACOS:
  • Corn Tortillas
  • Sweet And Spicy Pickled Red Onions
  • Sour Cream
  • Shredded Cabbage
  • Salsa Verde
  • Guacamole

Preparation

For the beer batter:
1. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, beer, salt, powder and cayenne and whisk until well combined. Cover with plastic wrap and leave sitting on the counter for at least 1 hour and up to 2 hours.
2. Bring the oil up to 375ºF over medium heat.
3. Salt and pepper the fish.
4. Combine the flour and salt in a shallow dish. Dredge the fish in the flour and shake off the extra flour.
5. Coat the fish in the beer batter and gently lower into the hot oil a few pieces at a time, taking care not to let the oil temperature drop (you will have to increase the heat until the temperature regulates).
6. Fry the fish, gently flipping as needed until golden brown and crispy, about 4-5 minutes.
7. Briefly drain on a paper towel and serve immediately. (I kept mine warm in a 250ºF oven while I finished frying the rest.)
8. Serve with all of the condiments.
