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!
These were so good. I did have some trouble with the batter as it stuck to my fryer, but what remained on the fish had great flavor. Loved the sauce (thought I omitted the cilantro)! Thank you.
I added extra cilantro as well as about a tsp. of lime and chile Habanero to the Aurora sauce it gave the sauce a bit of a picante taste that we like with our Tacos.(I used about 1/2 a large habanero)
Wonderful! I did these for lunch today. I had some Alaskan Cod in the freezer and that worked very nicely. I doubled the Cilantro, I love the stuff. I also used a Brown Ale, again what I had on hand. One recommendation I strongly make is to be certain the oil is at 350F. This seals the batter and prevents it from becoming greasy as well as insuring its crispness. This is most definetly a keeper and a frequent user. Thanx for posting this great recipe. Pierre
I made Baja Fish Burritos last night. They tasted really good and I liked the cilantro sauce. Next time I will add more cilantro to the sauce. The fish never got good and crispy. The batter was gooey after frying – I must have done something wrong. They were even a bit gooey after coming out of the oven. Nonetheless, they had a great flavor and made a great burrito filling. Thanks for the recipe!
This was delicious! I made it last night and it was easy to make and even my picky son loved it. A definate keeper.
