LET’S GET COOKING

  • 1.

    For the Slaw:

    In a large bowl mix shredded red cabbage, cilantro, red onion, apple cider vinegar, honey, Chain Reaction® and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

  • 2.

    For the Sauce:

    In another small bowl, mix the mayonnaise, lime juice and diced green chiles. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

  • 3.

    For the Fish:

    Cut the fish into small strips. Pat them dry. Set aside.

  • 4.

    In a large bowl, mix the flour, cornstarch and 1 tbsp Casa M Spice Co® Hooked. Once mixed. Pour in the beer slowly while mixing at the same time until it is thoroughly combined. This is your batter.

  • 5.

    In a nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat.

  • 6.

    Once the oil is hot, dip one piece of fish at a time into the batter and immediately add to the skillet. Repeat with all the pieces. Be sure not to overcrowd the skillet. Fry them in batches if needed. Note: Be sure to handle them carefully when turning them over so that they don’t fall apart. Because the fish is thin, you won’t need more than 5 minutes total. The goldenness should be light colored

  • 7.

    When done frying, assemble the tacos by placing the desired number of fish pieces on the tortillas and topping with the slaw and sauce. Garnish with cilantro and lime if desired.
