Beer Battered Fish Tacos


2 cups of vegetable oil

1 cup all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons cornstarch

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

freshly ground black pepper

12 ounces of dark beer

1 1/4 pounds cod, cut into 16 pieces

8 corn tortillas, warmed

1/2 cup nonfat Greek yogurt

shredded green cabbage

Quick Pickled Veggies (recipe below)

Hot sauce (optional)

Equipment: a deep-fry thermometer


Heat oil to 375-degrees in a pot or Dutch oven (use a thermometer to ensure proper temperature).  In a large bowl add flour, cornstarch, salt, and pepper. Slowly whisk in beer and mix until combined. Dip fish into batter, allow excess to drip off and transfer to hot oil. Fry fish for 2-3 minutes, turning once with tongs until puffed and golden brown. Remove fish from oil and place on a plate lined with paper towel and season with additional salt if desired. Serve immediately in warmed tortillas topped with Greek yogurt, cabbage, pickled vegetables, and hot sauce, if desired. Tip: Move the fish with tongs after adding to the oil to prevent the fish from sticking the bottom of the pot.
