6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
180ml cold beer (light beer works well)
Vegetable oil for frying

For the Cabbage Slaw:
150g shredded green cabbage
40g thinly sliced red onion
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
Juice of 1 lime
Salt and pepper to taste

For the Baja Crema:
4 tablespoons mayonnaise
1.5 tablespoons sour cream
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/2 teaspoon lime zest
1/2 teaspoon hot sauce (adjust to taste)
Salt and pepper to taste

Other Ingredients:
Small corn tortillas
Lime wedges for serving
Fresh cilantro for garnish
Guacamole
Tortilla chips
Salsa

 

Instructions:

Prepare the Beer-Battered Cod:

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and black pepper.

Gradually add the cold beer, whisking continuously until you have a smooth batter.

Heat vegetable oil in a deep pan to 350°F (175°C).

Dip each cod strip into the batter, allowing excess to drip off, and carefully place it into the hot oil.

Fry until the batter is golden brown and the cod is cooked through, about 3-4 minutes per side. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel-lined plate.

Make the Cabbage Slaw:

In a large bowl, combine shredded cabbage, sliced red onion, chopped cilantro, lime juice, salt, and pepper. Toss until well combined. Set aside.

Prepare the Baja Crema:

In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, sour cream, lime juice, lime zest, hot sauce, salt, and pepper. Adjust the seasoning to taste.

Assemble the Tacos:

Heat corn tortillas in a dry skillet or microwave until warm and pliable.

Spread a spoonful of Baja Crema on each tortilla.

Place a few pieces of beer-battered cod on top.

Top with the cabbage slaw and garnish with fresh cilantro.

Serve with lime wedges on the side.

Enjoy:

Serve and enjoy your Baja-style Cod Tacos with the added delight of guacamole, tortilla chips, and salsa! Enjoy the crispy goodness with the refreshing slaw and zesty crema.
