Serves: 10 

1 cup (250ml) dark beer
1 cup (125g) plain flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
680g white fish fillets, cut into 10 strips
4 cups (1 litre) vegetable oil for frying
20 tortillas
5 cups (350g) grated cabbage
1 cup (250ml) mayonnaise
1/4 cup (60ml) salsa
1 lime or lemon, cut into wedges



Preparation: 30 min  Cook: 15min  Ready in: 45min 

  1. In a shallow bowl, whisk together beer, flour and salt.
  2. Rinse fish and pat dry.
  3. In a large saucepan, heat 3cm oil to 170 degrees C. Using a fork, coat fish pieces in batter. Slide coated fish into hot oil in batches; adjust heat to maintain oil temperature. Fry until golden, about 2 minutes. Lift out with a slotted spoon and drain briefly on paper towels; keep warm. Repeat to fry remaining fish.
On the centre of a tortilla, place a piece of fish and cabbage. Garnish with mayonnaise, lime or lemon wedges and salsa.
