Heat a dry cast iron or heavy skillet and warm flour tortillas until heated. Assemble tortillas by layering fish, cabbage, mayonnaise, and salsa.

Dash yellow mustard

Beer to make batter consistency of pancake batter

1/4 cup chopped canned or fresh jalapeno peppers

1/4 cup diced onion

1/4 cup chopped cilantro leaves

1/4 cup canned green chiles
