    LifeIsGood's Note:

    The key to really great chicharron is to make sure that the fried fish is crispy and not greasy. You can add some avocado slices to each taco for a creamy, cool complement. Recipe courtesy of Ingrid Hoffman.

    Tartar Sacue



    1. 1
      Tartar Sauce:.
    2. 2
      Combine all of the sauce ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Adjust the salt to taste. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use.
    3. 3
    4. 4
      Rinse the fish under cold running water and pat dry with paper towels. Cut the fish into 1 inch cubes and put in a large bowl. Add the Worcestershire sauce, garlic, salt and pepper and turn the fish carefully to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 20 minutes or up to 4 hours.
    5. 5
      Put the flour on a plaate and toss the fish pieces in it a few at a time, until they are all evenly coated.
    6. 6
      Heat the vegetable oil in a large pot over medium-high heat to 375 degrees F. Carefully add a few pieces of the fish at a time, shaking off any excess flour before placing them into the oil. Fry until the fish pieces are golden brown all over, about 4-6 minutes. Then transfer them to a paper towel lined plate to drain.
    7. 7
      Meanwhile, heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add a tortilla and warm for 10-15 seconds. Flip the tortilla and warm until it is pliant and heated through, another 10-20 seconds. Place on a plate and cover with a towel to keep them warm. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.
    8. 8
      Spread a dollop of the chipotle tartar sauce onto a warmed tortilla. Add a few strips of cucumber and top with 3 or 4 pieces of fish. Cover with a few arugula leaves and cilantro leaves and a sprinkling of the orange zest. Serve with more chipotle tartar sauce and the lime wedges on the side. Enjoy!

      These tacos are really out of this world! I think it's the Cucumbers. I know the recipe says flour tortillas, but I used thick corn tortillas called gordita.

      Great! I used gluten free flour tortillas and home made adobo, and we absolutely loved this! Thanks for sharing!

      Great fish tacos! I am especially in love with the tartar sauce- I'll be using it again in other recipes as well. I actually cheated and used catfish because it was on sale, and instead of frying I baked the the fish pieces in a very hot oven for about 10 minutes. They actually still came out very crispy, but that's probably because I breaded them. All in all, very good!
