DIRECTIONS

  • To make the sauce:.
  • Put mayonnaise, sour cream, peppers, and lime juice in a blender and process to a puree. Add salt & pepper to taste. Place in a bowl and refrigerate for at least an hour. After chilled test for seasoning. Add salt & pepper if needed.
  • To make the fish:.
  • Heat a heavy pan about 1/4 full of peanut oil to approximately 375 degrees. Place Panko crumbs, salt, pepper, and chipotle powder in a shallow bowl. Wisk eggs into another shallow bowl with some salt & pepper. Slice fish into taco size pieces, about 1 inch wide by 3-4 inches long. Dip fish into the egg wash and coat with panko crumbs. Make sure that the fish is well coated but not over coated (shake well). Let rest for a 2-3 minutes before cooking.
  • Cook the fish in the hot oil in small batches. This will keep the temperature high so you can cook the fish fast. Cook the fish for about 4-5 minutes until golden browned and crispy. Once cooked, place on paper towels and pat dry to drain any residual oil.
  • Steam corn tortillas according to package instructions. You can also heat them on the stove.
  • Serve tacos by placing some sauce in the bottom of a tortilla, add fish, and the cabbage. Garnish with a fresh lime wedge. I also like to add some fresh fruit salsa, like my Pineapple salsa with this recipe.
