Baja-Style Fish Tacos

No Comments | Written on August 27, 2014 at 5:00 am , by

I have such a soft spot for fish tacos, and sometimes I simply crave them for dinner!  I think it is because they remind me of the years I lived in Los Angeles.  There’s something about that combination of corn tortillas, crispy fish, vegetable slaw and a spicy kick that takes me right back to dinner at sunset along the Pacific ocean.

This beer-battered fish version is one of my favorites.  I suggest using one bottle of Corona in the recipe and serving the rest of the six-pack with dinner!
