Ingredients
  • White Sauce:
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • Fish Tacos:
  • Oil
  • 2 packages Tempura Batter Mix
  • 1 can beer
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 24 ounces boneless cod, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 6 corn tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 2 limes
Directions
For the sauce:

Mix all ingredients together and set aside.

Preheat a fryer or a deep pot halfway filled with oil to 375 degrees F.

Mix 1 of the packages of batter, but only use 1/2 the required amount of water and use beer for the remaining amount instead. Add the beer until the batter becomes almost like a heavy cream consistency.

Using the other package of batter add salt and garlic powder, coat cod pieces with the dry mix, then dip into prepared batter. Deep-fry for about 3 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.

Place fried cod pieces on warmed corn tortillas, add white sauce to fish, a little shredded cabbage and a squeeze of lime, to taste.

This was really good, I seasoned the cabbage with Mirin, lime and toasted sesame oil, added Adobe to the mayo and didn't add the milk since we were out. I added mexican chili powder to season the fish and the batter and didn't have to coat the fish with dry mix prior to dipping. LOVED IT! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I haven't had fish tacos this good since I left California 3 years ago! I didn't have any tempura batter so I substituted it with panko breadcrumbs instead and I cut the recipe in 1/2 since only my husband and I were going to eat it. I also added a hint of cayenne to spice up the sauce. We we each had 3 tacos and it was absolutely delicious! This will definitely be something I make on a monthly basis : The mayo by itself isn't phenomonal but when you combine everything together it's pretty darn good! Highly recommended you try this.... item not reviewed by moderator and published
The fish was crisp and delicious and the sauce was outstanding. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made the sauce a bit different, as I don't ever keep mayo in my house. I used one container of plain greek yogurt and it turned out really really good! As for the fish...I don't eat fried food, so it was pan seared and served in a homemade corn tortilla-yum! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The taste was okay. Baja fish tacos are NOT made with mayonnaise so the name is deceiving. It was a so so good fish taco. Somewhat ruined by the sauce. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Let me just say for the white sauce, I have turned many non fish tacos lovers into die hard fans. It's delicious. If you take anything out of this receipe, let it be this!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
