DIRECTIONS

  • For the avocado cream:
  • Puree the yogurt, avocados, jalapeno, lime zest and juice, cilantro and hot sauce to taste in a food processor until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • For the pico de gallo:
  • Combine the oil, tomatoes, garlic, onions, bell peppers, jalapeno, lime juice and cilantro in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • For the fish:
  • Combine 2 cups flour, the cornstarch, baking powder and some salt in a bowl. Quickly stir in the beer and eggs (don't worry if there are a few lumps).
  • Heat the oil in a deep fryer to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  • Put the remaining 1 cup flour in a shallow dish. Dredge the fish lightly in the flour. Dip the fish in the beer batter to coat, and then fry until crisp and golden brown, about 1 1/2 minutes.
  • Drain on paper towels and season with salt and pepper.
  • For serving:
  • Spread some avocado cream on a Homemade Tortilla. Top with 3 pieces of fish and some shredded lettuce. Finish with pico de gallo and Spicy Green Chili Sauce.
  • Homemade Tortillas:
  • Combine the flour, 1 1/2 cups water and the salt, and then knead to form the dough. Pinch off a golf-ball-size piece of dough and use your hands to flatten it into a round shape. Set the round on a piece of plastic wrap and cover with another piece of plastic. Use the back of a heavy cast-iron skillet to flatten the dough. (You can use a tortilla press if you have one.).
  • Transfer the tortilla to a hot, dry skillet. Cook for about 30 seconds on each side. Remove and keep warm. Repeat with the remaining dough.
  • Spicy Green Chili Sauce:
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (225 degrees C).
  • Put the peppers on a baking sheet. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons oil and season with salt. Roast until the skins are charred, about 30 minutes.
  • Transfer the peppers to an airtight container and let cool (this will make them easier to peel). Peel off the skins, remove the seeds and cut the peppers into chunks.
  • Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Saute the onions until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the roasted peppers, vinegar, coriander, garlic and sugar and cook for 1 minute. Add 2 cups (500 ml) water and lower the heat to medium-low. Cook until almost all the liquid has evaporated, about 30 minutes. Stir in the cilantro and season with salt and pepper.
