A lighter version of one I've made before - uses less beer and flour and does not deep-fry the fish! Was still pretty good! Be sure to pat the fish dry before you batter them as the batter won't stick as well. Serve with my Mango/Black Bean Salsa or Cole Slaw.

Recipe Ingredients for Beer-Battered Fish Tacos (Lite)

1 lb tilapia fillets, cut in half length-wise
5 tablespoons whole wheat flour, can also use white flour
1/4 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup beer, medium brew works best
2 tablespoons olive oil, as needed to fry fish

Recipe Directions for Beer-Battered Fish Tacos (Lite)

  1. Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse and pat dry with paper towels.

  2. Mix flour, cumin, cayenne, salt and pepper in a shallow bowl.

  3. Add beer and wisk until froth goes away.

  4. Heat oil in a large non-stick or cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat until popping.

  5. Dip fish fillets in batter, completely coating fillet. Let excess batter drip off then place in skillet.

  6. Pan-fry until fish turns opaque and batter is golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side.

  7. Add more oil as needed.

  8. When fillets are done, place on a paper towel covered plate to soak up excess oil.

  9. Serve with warmed tortillas, slaw and salsa.
