    Tee Lee's Note:

    This recipe is a healthful version of the battered, deep-fried and crispy fish at Rossy's Tacos in Baja California. I have never had their fish tacos, but this recipe sound great as a main dish or in a taco. From .

      I never batter fish, and was surprised how tasty and easy this was to make. Make sure your fish is dry before trying to batter. Just blot fish on paper towels before dipping in batter.

      This beer batter is SUPERB. I know this says it serves six but two of us ate all of the fish since it was so good! I doubled all spices except the salt. Be sure to dry off the fish well before coating with batter, so it sticks well. This is a quick and easy recipe that I'll make again!

      This was fantastic. The only thing I'd like to figure out is how to make the batter stick to the fist better. We also cut up a sweet onion and made a batch of onion rings with the left over batter.
