Today’s Menu: Beer-Battered Fish Tacos

Beer-Battered Fish Tacos 012
The weather is heating up a bit around here, in the 80’s and a little humid. Went early this morning to our local Kroger and had to buy a new Oil Thermometer, got the old one out and it was broke. I need to make tonight’s dinner. Came back and did a load of laundry and picked up around the house. Then at Noon I met a couple of long time High School friends for lunch at BW 3’s. We usually meet over there when my one friend comes into town for a visit. I like it there because there is a lot of room and not so crowded in my wheelchair. Great catching up with both of them. For dinner tonight its Beer-Battered Fish Tacos.

 

While at Kroger yesterday I picked up some nice looking Tilapia Fillets, which I’m using for tonight’s dinner. Came Beer-Battered Fish Tacos 002across the recipe for Beer-Battered Fish Tacos on the Cooking.com website so I thought I would give it a try! For the Fish I’ll need; Canola Oil, 1 cup All-Purpose Flour, 1 teaspoon Sea Salt, 1/2 teaspoon freshly Ground Black Pepper, 1 cup beer (, 1 pound Tilapia Fillet (cut into 1-inch wide strips), and Mission Flour Tortillas. To prepare it I’m using a small Dutch Oven. In the small, heavy-bottomed Dutch Oven fitted with a deep-fry thermometer, I added enough vegetable oil so that it covered the bottom inch of the pan. Heated on medium-high.

In a shallow bowl, stirred together the flour, salt and pepper. Stir in the beer to make a batter. Added the Tilapia to the batter to coat. When the oil reached 350 degrees F, added the Tilapia in batches, being careful not to overcrowd the pot. Also be very careful to avoid any splashing of the hot oil when adding the Tilapia. Cook the pieces until crispy and golden, about 2 to 4 minutes. Drained on paper towels. Divide the fish among the tortillas and served with the toppings.

 

 

For optional toppings you can use; Sliced radishes, Salsa, Sour cream, Cilantro, Lettuce, Avocado, or Lime wedges. I Beer-Battered Fish Tacos 010used Sliced Radishes, Simple Truth Black Bean and Corn Salsa, Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream, and Lettuce. And what a Taco! The Tilapia was incredible with the Beer Batter, and all the toppings work perfect with Tilapia. Another one of those”Keeper Recipes”, that I’ll be fixing again! I’ve left the original recipe along with its web link at the end of the post. I made some changes to the recipe, one being using Mission Flour Tortillas instead of a Corn Tortilla. I prefer the Flour over Corn, just don’t enjoy the Corn Tortillas as much. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Double Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.
