Baja-Battered Fish

June/July 2005, EatingWell Serves Two

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (62 votes)

You may not think of fish as a taco ingredient, but the Mexican-inspired fish-taco craze is beginning to spread. Once you've had one, you'll understand. This recipe is a healthful version of the battered, deep-fried and crispy fish at Rossy's Tacos in Baja California.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Excellent batter for fish or anything you might want lightly fried. I spiced up the fish and batter a lot more than the recipe instructed but we like spicy (cayenne pepper, white pepper and a Cajun spice blend). Big hit and will make it...

Holy cow, this is a winner!

I didn't use a blender. Whisking it in a glass mixing bowl was fine. The batter is thick, and at first it didn't want to stick to the fish (Tilapia), but just a little coaxing covered the pieces nicely. I used the exact ingredients as shown, but my wife will probably tell me to leave out the cayenne next time. And there WILL be a next time! I didn't make it in tacos, since I usually don't care for seafood tacos. A big Thank You to whomever created this.

Yummy; fairly easy & quick; easy cleanup

Good recipe for the fish but what about the rest of the taco?
