Baja Fish Tacos

Recipe by Kevin Young

I couldn't find a recipe on here for this, so went out and found one myself, these are great. I was a little put off by them at first, I mean... Fish Tacos, but they are great.

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!
