Summertime=tacos. If you’re bored of chicken or crane asada, try this simple recipe for delicious fish tacos. Scroll below for a step by step video!

1. This recipe will start with a delicious spicy dill cream sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons milk 
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice 
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dill
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup mayo

Mix all ingredients in bowl until spices are evenly blended. 

2. Pickled onion & jalapeño:

  • 1 red onion 
  • 2 jalapeños
  • 1 cup white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice 
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Boil vinegar, lime juice, sugar, salt. Slice onion and jalapeño. Pour mixture over the onion and jalapeño and let sit for about 30 minutes. 

3. Cabbage is optional. Sometimes, I like an extra crunch in my meals:

  • 2 cups cabbage 
  • 1/4 cup of pickled juice from onion and jalapeño 
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Shred cabbage and toss with juice until it’s evenly coated. 

4. Beer batter:

  • 3/4 cup unbleached flour 
  • 1/4 cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder 
  • 1.5 cups of beer
  • 1 egg (optional)

Mix dry ingriendients in bowl. If using egg with recipe, whisk egg and mix with beer. Pour beer mixture into dry ingredients and whisk away until mixture is smooth. 

Pour remaining beer in a cold glass and enjoy 😉


  • 2 pounds of any white fish to your liking.

Stove top:

  • Heat oil in Dutch oven or cast iron. Oil must reach 350 degrees.

Slice fish into bit size chunks and mix well into beer batter. Once fish is coated well enough, use a pair of tongs to pick up fish and swirl around in hot oil before releasing. Swirling fish in hot oil will prevent fish chunks from sticking together. Fry fish until golden brown, remove and place on paper towel to drain excess oil. 

Chow Down:

Place fried fish pieces into a warm tortilla. Top with pickled onion mixture, cabbage and your dill cream sauce and enjoy!!
