Beer-Battered Fish Tacos with Tomato & Avocado Salsa


From EatingWell:  June/July 2005, EatingWell Serves Two

Lovers of fried fish get the taste without all the calories, and the salsa adds a fresh, clean note. To complete the Baja theme, serve with black beans, some diced mango and a bit of light sour cream.

2 servings, 2 tacos & about 3/4 cup salsa each | Active Time: 40 minutes | Total Time: 40 minutes


Tomato & Avocado Salsa

Fish Tacos


  1. To prepare salsa: Combine tomato, onion, jalapeno, lime juice to taste, kosher salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Stir in avocado and cilantro. Add cayenne (if using).
  2. To prepare tacos: Combine flour, cumin, salt and cayenne in a medium bowl. Whisk in beer to create a batter.
  3. Coat tilapia pieces in the batter. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Letting excess batter drip back into the bowl, add the fish to the pan; cook until crispy and golden, 2 to 4 minutes per side. Serve the fish with tortillas and the salsa.
