Food Fashion and Flow: Fish tacos with lime cilantro slaw

Fish tacos with lime cilantro slaw

I seriously love fish tacos.  When I first discovered them nearly ten years ago there was no turning back.  They are filling, flavorful and healthy if you grill the fish rather than fry.  They are delicious both ways and this fish taco with flavorful lime cilantro slaw will not disappoint.  In traditional tacos, most people fill with lettuce cheese and tomatoes,  but I love the way shredded cabbage compliments the lightness of the fish.   I love to serve these with crunchy tortilla chips and beans. It is the perfect dinner!

Fresh Juicy Limes 

 Shredded cabbage

Sour Cream

Ground Cumin

 Jalapeno adds the right kick and a hint of spiciness

Does this make you a little hungry? Lets make fish tacos!


1 quart oil for frying
1 pound cod fillets or your choice of fish, cut into strips
1 (12 ounce) package corn tortillas
1 bag slaw mix ( shredded cabbage)

Fish Batter

1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon seasoning salt
1 egg
1 cup beer

Cilantro Lime Slaw 

Slaw mix or 1/2 cabbage head shredded 
2/3 cup sour cream
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/3 cup minced onion
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 teaspoon mexican oregano
1/2 jalapeno minced 

 Combine all ingredients and toss with cabbage and set aside.

  1. To make beer batter: In a large bowl, combine flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt. Blend egg and beer, then quickly stir into the flour mixture (don't worry about a few lumps).
  2. Heat oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Dust fish pieces lightly with flour. Dip into beer batter, and fry until crisp and golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Lightly fry tortillas; not too crisp. To serve, place fried fish in a tortilla, and top with lime cilantro slaw

You can also grill your fish for a healthier alternative
Note: A dash of hot sauce makes the tacos even more flavorful:-)
