Beer Batter Fish Tacos For SRC

Sharing is caring!

Beer batter anything always gets my heart to racing just a little. Well, maybe A LOT!

When I spotted this recipe for Beer Batter Fish Taco’s on So Tasty, So Yummy’s blog, I just knew beyond a shadow of a doubt, that this would be my choice for September’s Secret Recipe Club.

Even though my husband didn’t go out and catch his own fish (like So Tasty, So Yummy’s husband does…lucky girl!), we enjoyed this recipe very, very much!  I did however score a good catch at the grocery store when I purchased the cod fish that I used in this recipe.  It’s not nearly as exciting as catching your own, but it does get the job done 🙂

TA DA!  Just look at this beauty!!!  I love this picture so much I’ve even been using it as my screen saver! LOL

Beer Batter Fish Taco Recipe

Here is my take on So Tasty, So Yummy’s recipe…


1 12 ounce bottle of beer
1 cup of all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
additional salt and pepper to season the fish
1 teaspoon smoked cumin
1 pound of cod (or fish or your own choosing), cut into 2″ pieces
canola oil for frying

4 avocados, peeled and pitted
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 lime, zested then juiced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1-2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
2 tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1 teaspoon smoked cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
8 flour tortillas

– In a large shallow dish, mix together the flour, salt, pepper, cumin and beer. The batter should be thick.
-Allow the batter to sit for a few moments while you cut the fish into 2″ pieces.
 -Season the fish with additional salt and pepper.
-In a large, high sided skillet or dutch oven, heat 3″-4″ canola oil, so when you dip the handle of a wooden spoon into the oil thousand of tiny bubbles form around the spoon handle and float to the top.
-Meanwhile, add some of the cod chunks into the beer batter and toss to coat the fish liberally.
-Set the coated chunks aside and continue with the remaining fish.
-In batches, fry the coated fish in the canola oil until nice and deep golden brown.
-Remove fish with a slotted spoon and keep warm.
-Continue with the remaining fish.
-Mash the avocados in a large bowl.
-Add the yogurt, garlic, cilantro, lime zest and juice, salt and pepper, smoked cumin and ground coriander.
-Mix well to combine.
-To serve, add some of the fish chunks to a flour tortilla, top with the avocado sauce and the chopped tomatoes.
