Beer Battered Fish Tacos

beer batter fish tacosC went out offshore fishing with his friends from work, I was very excited to see what he would come home with since they had come home with a ton of red snapper the weekend prior. Turns out C is a bit of a curse, no one caught anything but a couple of baby sharks. They did some fishing in the bay the next day, so C did bring home some trout and redfish. I used a filet of the redfish for this recipe, but any mild white fish would work perfectly. C and Miss F both enjoyed their fish, which is especially shocking since C rarely (if ever) eats seafood.
Beer Batter Fish Tacos

1 12 ounce bottle of beer
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 pound white fish, such as tilapia, red fish or cod
vegetable oil

1/4 cup sour cream
1 avocado, peeled and pitted
1 lime
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tomato, chopped
8 tortillas

Stir together the beer, flour and salt. Slice the fish filets into 1 inch thick slices. Add the fish pieces to the batter and toss to coat. Heat 2 inches of oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the fish pieces one at a time, turning them over after cooking for 5 minutes. Cook for five minutes more, remove and drain on paper towels.

In a small food processor, combine the sour cream, avocado, juice of one lime and salt. Pulse to puree.

Serve the tortillas with the fish, avocado cream and tomatoes.

This looks amazing! Especially with that blob of fantastic avocado cream on top. I'll definitely be adding this to my must try list. :)
