Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pat the fish filet strips dry with paper towels.
  2. Mix the flour, salt, pepper, vegetable oil and egg yolks to form a batter.
  3. Beat the egg whites until stiff, and fold into the mixture.
  4. In a large skillet, heat oil with a depth of no more than 1 inch.
  5. Dip each fish strip in the batter, fry quickly on one side, turning to fry the other until golden brown. This should only take a couple of minutes on each side. Drain on paper towels.
  6. Arrange pieces of fish in softened tortillas and serve at once, accompanied by the shredded cabbage, marinated onions, guacamole sauce, and a selection of salsas.

These were very good! The flavor profile is incredible! Gotta hand it to those marinated oninions! I used a combination of red wine and balsamic vinegars. I also used a boxed beer batter for the tilapia to save time.

I made these with Cod and also added beer to the batter. I think the marinaded onions really added a great kick. I wish I would have had a few more. I'll know for next time. I also mixed a little sour cream with taco seasoning for a little extra moisture since I had no salsa or guac. My husband is already asking for these again. Thanks for the recipe!
