Tempura Batter:





Special equipment:
a deep-fryer
  1. Preheat the oil in a deep-fryer to 375 degrees F.
  2. For the tempura batter: Add the all-purpose flour, rice flour, cornstarch, baking powder and salt to a large bowl. Whisk in the soda water, 1 cup at a time, until a thickened batter is formed.
  3. For the fish: Sprinkle the fish pieces with salt. Dip the fish in the batter, then add to the deep-fryer and let cook for 7 minutes. Drain on a wire rack-lined sheet tray and season with salt.
  4. For the salad: Add the red cabbage, cilantro, Fresno, jalapeño and serrano to a small bowl. Toss to combine and set aside.
  5. For the aioli: Add the mayonnaise, cilantro, apple cider vinegar, wasabi, garlic, lime juice, ginger and salt to taste in a small bowl. Stir to combine and set aside.
  6. To assemble: Add the tortillas to the deep-fryer and cook until toasted, about 30 seconds. Place a tortilla down and top with the aioli, fish, salad, avocado and lime juice. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
