Recipe by LifeIsGood
READY IN: 40mins




  • Tartar Sauce:
  • 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.
  • Tacos:
  • 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.
  • Put the flour on a plaate and toss the fish pieces in it a few at a time, until they are all evenly coated.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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!
