Perfect for your next fish dinner, this delicious crunchy coating and spicy slaw will change your opinion of fish tacos. The fish is dipped in a beer batter and shallow fried to crunchy perfection. The slaw comes together fast and can be made while the beer batter rests.

INGREDIENTS
Beer Batter
½ cup all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
½ cup dark beer

Slaw
¼ cup mayonnaise
¼ cup sour cream
1 ½ tablespoons prepared horseradish
Kosher salt and black pepper
1 ½ cups of thinly sliced red or green cabbage

Fish Tacos
Oil, for frying
½ cup all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt, plus more for seasoning
1 pound skinned halibut cut into 5 by ½-inch strips
Freshly ground black pepper
Corn tortillas
Lime wedges
½ avocado, diced

INSTRUCTIONS

Beer Batter
Mix the flour, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl. Gradually add in the beer while whisking. Set aside and let the batter rest for 15 minutes before using.

Slaw
Whisk mayo, sour cream and horseradish in a medium bowl to blend. Stir in shredded cabbage. Refrigerate while you finish the fish.

Fish Tacos
In a large skillet, over medium heat, add enough oil to reach a depth of 1-inch. Heat the oil until a deep-fry thermometer registers 350 degrees F or when the end of a wooden spoon sizzles when inserted into the oil.

On a large plate, combine the flour and salt. Season the fish pieces all over with salt and pepper and coat with the flour. Working in batches, dip the fillets in the beer batter and coat on both sides. Fry in the hot oil until golden brown and cooked through about 5 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain.

Make tacos with the tortillas and fish and top each with horseradish slaw, avocado, and squeeze of a lime wedge.
