These were awesome!!!! I didn't have the seasoning called for, so I just used a combo of chili powder, garlic powder, and onion powder. They fried up very nicely (I used canola oil in a large cast iron skillet) and the breading stayed intact. I don't like cold cabbage or onions, so I omitted them when I put these together. Instead, to give them a bit of crunch I used a yellow corn/black bean relish. The sauce was really yummy too, and I think I may start making this to put on other things as well. Would be good with avacado slices but I was all out.

Yum, Yum, Yum! I recently relocated and I have been craving fish tacos. This hit the spot. I will be making it again very soon. I started cooking late last night so I only marinated it for about an hour or so then we each had a test taco along with our standard carne asada tacos we eat all the time. They were ok...not great but I also botched the sauce a little because I couldn't pull it up on my phone while I was out shopping. I finally got to it by accident while I was cooking and realized as I was mixing it that I did not have crucial ingredients jalapenos and 1/4 cup of lime juice. So I experimented a little. Today for lunch however the meat and batter has been resting all night and I added some Chipotle seasoning to the sauce yum is all I can say. I will be making it again with the right sauce. This would be great for an outdoor event with a Corona and some lime ;-)

These were fantastic! I made them exactly as written - except - I forgot to add the cheese. Usually, that would have caused an uproar in the house - but nobody noticed. They were so yummy. The sauce was delicious as well. And I love cabbage. That is to say, I don't really like cabbage but it is nearly tasteless on these tacos - but the crunch is nice. We have a veggie house rule - must eat a couple of veggies at each meal - my teens piled on the cabbage to meet the requirement. Oh, I did change one other thing - flour tortillas instead of corn. It was a shopping mistake. Corn would be better.
