Made this for dinner tonight, it was superb! I think some people had difficulty with the batter, the key for me was to first coat the fish with flour, then put it in the batter, it sticks to the surface better that way. I also topped with corn and onion that I roasted on high in the oven for 15 minutes, and for salsa just used the Trader Joe's Salsa de Cabo. Yummy!

I love this and have made it several times! The batter is simple and perfect, I sometimes sub hard cider for the beer.... delicious!

Had no dark beer, so used some Salvadoran lager; short of flour, too, so used part self-rising, probably a very good idea. Bumped the cumin and added some ground red chile, plus a dash of Tapatio to the batter. Made six big tacos for three hungry people; got mad raves, displays of licking plates etcetera... Yes, we loved it!
