Original recipe makes 8 Servings



To make beer batter: In a large bowl, combine flour, cornstarch, baking powder and salt. Blend egg and beer, then quickly stir into the flour mixture (don't worry about a few lumps).

To make sauce: In a medium bowl, mix together yogurt and mayonnaise. Gradually stir in fresh lime juice until consistency is slightly runny. Season with jalapeno, capers, oregano, cumin, dill and cayenne.

Heat oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Dust fish pieces lightly with flour. Dip into beer batter, and fry until crisp and golden brown. Drain on paper towels.

Warm tortillas. To serve, place fish in a warmed tortilla and top with shredded cabbage and sauce.

Made with Ontario Pickeral. Used butter instead of oil. Was absolutely incredible

Be sure to make small pieces as they get larger when fried.
