Beer Battered Fish Tacos – and Everything Else!

Published by at 9:22 pm under Cooking at Home,Friends

One of my favorite dishes would have to be fish tacos – fried, of course! Luckily for me, we had the opportunity to go all-out on making this for our friends last week. There isn’t much cooking involved, so the process was easy and putting everything together was fun. Actually, our friends had a little too much fun and wanted to deep fry everything we had!

The glue to the entire meal is the batter. To make this, we used 1 cup flour, 1 tbsp garlic powder, 1 tbsp dried oregano, 1 tsp black pepper, salt to taste, and finally 8 ounces of your favorite beer. Mix it all together.

Cut up the fish you want to use (cod, halibut, pollack - any type of white fish will do). Here we used cod.

Roll each piece of fish thinly in a seasoned flour (season it how'd you like), then dip it into the beer batter, and finally into a 350-degree deep fryer. Each piece should take roughly about 3-4 minutes to fry.

In the meantime, prepare the other ingredients that will go into your fish tacos - such as this pico de gallo that we made using fresh tomatoes from the backyard. We spiced it up with chopped jalapenos.

In addition, we also made guacamole and the white sauce. Surprisingly, the white sauce is simply just equal parts of mayonnaise and yogurt, and a little bit of lemon juice.

Layer each taco with some cabbage, cilantro, salsa, guacamole, white sauce, and the fish. Squeeze a little lime on top and devour the scrumptious homemade fish tacos!

As if the fish tacos weren't enough, we decided to deep fry some vegetables with our extra batter. Fried green tomatoes and fried zucchini. At least we are eating our vegetables, right?

This is what it looks like after the hot bath in oil.

To make matters worse, we took my 100-calorie snacks and deep fried them too! Who needs the annual county fair when you can make your own deep fried carrot cakes?

    Hooray for deep fried food:) I love beer batter (not a huge fan of fish) but it sure does look great!

    The tacos and fried veggies were great. They are right, it was way to easy to get carried away frying everything. When can we do this again?

  4. thefoodaddictson 28 Jun 2009 at 10:27 pm

    I am sure we will be doing sushi before we do fish tacos again! It’s long overdue!!

    Ooh I’ve had fish tacos once and they were divine! Thankyou so much for sharing the recipe. They look so delicious and succulent! :D

    HA! Fried 100 cal snacks is the greatest oxymoron ever in the cooking world. Love love love it! Ummm do you know that there is a fridge absolutely stocked with beer…just waiting to be applied to food. Fried foods are a good way to go. You hit it on the nail!

    And many thanks for the demi glacé! It arrived!

    Man, those tacos look good! I’ve been craving fish tacos and here you are with a brilliant recipe. If I wasn’t so terrified of deep-frying I’d be on my way to the store right now! LOL

    Really, I must get over that because these look sooooo good. Funny aside … I have that exact same blue bowl. :)

    Oh my, your fish tacos looks delicious!

    But the bigger question is what your 100 calorie snacks? Deep fried? Yummmmmmmm!!!!

  9. thefoodaddictson 29 Jun 2009 at 8:31 pm

    The Diva on a Diet: One of my favorite places to get fish tacos is actually at Del Taco! The fish is nice and crunchy and their white sauce is pretty good! And that blue bowl of mine was a gift – it was the whole Martha Stewart mixing bowl set. I love it!

    Stacey: To be honest, those 100-calorie snacks that we deep fried were ridiculously good. I think it’s the sweetness from the cake itself, mixed with the saltiness from the batter. What a crazy combination! But everyone loved it… we probably turned that 100-calorie snack into a 300-calorie snack!

    nothing like the sizzle of oil ready for something to be dropped into its goodness…I use quinoa flour with beer and it rocks too…I am ready to run wild in someones tomato field and pull some green ones for my next fry fest!

  14. thefoodaddictson 08 Jul 2009 at 2:41 pm

    Feel free to run wild in our tomato field… we have a ton of green tomatoes and we have no idea what to do with them!

    These fish tacos look amazing! :D

  18. Gailon 27 Jul 2011 at 7:28 pm

    I sounds like the flour is in the beer batter, so I don’t understand. It says mix all together. Please explain….

  19. thefoodaddictson 28 Jul 2011 at 7:12 am

    Hi Gail,

    To make the beer batter; mix 1 cup flour, 1 tbsp garlic powder, 1 tbsp dried oregano, 1 tsp black pepper, salt to taste, and finally 8 ounces of your favorite beer. Mix it all together. Dip fish into batter and fry immediately.
