I put all the chilies in it. I would take one out next time!

This is the 2nd time I make them and my picky non-fish eating family loves these!!

Great recipe! 1 pepper = mild 2 peppers = med etc.... I think the batter needed an extra 1/2 tsp salt. the slaw comes out a little wet, maybe ditch the oil or implememt a salad spinner.

Used shorelunch instead of beer batter and they turned out amazing! Sauce had just the right amount of heat and slaw gave it some crunch. Definitely doing this one again.
David S. 20 Jul 2018
exactly as directed.
Joyce R. 7 Jul 2018
Wonderful! We make these at least 2 or 3 times a month.
Samantha Caruso 19 Jun 2018
awesome!!!! I will definitely make again
Lance Riviere 6 Jun 2018
I really enjoyed this recipe, although I agree with Kathy that it calls for way to much slaw.
Angela R. 21 May 2018
It turned out great. I didn’t stick to the recipe though. I used tilapia
Dawn Nails 9 Apr 2018
Very nice my husband wasn’t looking forward to having it but he enjoyed them too
Delvin A. 24 Mar 2018
A burst of flavor in every bite. Everything works well together. Didn't work out well with the frying so now i just bake the fish.
Samantha J. 16 Mar 2018
Delicious really good recipe
Nidia Treviño 12 Mar 2018

sooo good. will definitely make again
Jen 14 Nov 2017
These were delicious, everyone loved them. I made them according to the recipe (except for used a different cabbage because couldn't find red cabbage at my local store). Will definitely make them again!
Sarah Cavanah 30 Oct 2017
This one may have just been beyond me. The frying did not turn out at all.
Kathy 21 Oct 2017
I think that in order to really get the crispy beer batter taste, it needs to be deep fried. Used the pan method for frying but the batter fell off the fish. The slaw recipe is good but makes a lot. Could be cut in half easily. Flavors were good. Would make again but do something different with the fish.

I love it I would make it again

This is my first time reviewing anything, but this needs to be mentioned - these were the very best tacos I have ever had. I followed the directions to the T and my brother and sister-in-law (huge taco lovers) also said these were the best tacos they've ever had! I also fried shrimp and used Ro*tel for an extra topping. There was lots of effort and time put into these but well worth it if you're trying to impress company! Follow the directions exactly!
David James 7 Jul 2017
Great recipe, I added a couple things when building the tacos guacamole on top of the slaw after the chipotle sauce started off on the tortilla. Then topped with more freshly chopped cilantro and freshly cut tomatoes and a touch of hot sauce and a spicy breaded fish and also tilapia that was a straight grilled on the barbecue. It was awesome
Melissa A. 30 Jun 2017
After having the best fish tacos in Hawaii, we came home craving them. So glad I found this recipe, similar to the ones we had. So good!
Danny Miranda 8 Jun 2017
This came out amazing the sauce is fire
Tina 2 Apr 2017
I really wanted just a recipe for a cream sauce for the tacos. I was making lobster tacos and didn't want anything too heavy because I wanted the Lobster to be the star. I found this recipe and after tweaking it to my liking it was awesome. I added 1/2 cup sour cream, 3 tablespoons of chopped cilantro, 1 teaspoon of lime zest. Thank you for sharing your recipe!
Raizza T. 16 Jun 2016
My boyfriend said this was a six-star dish! I used salmon instead of cod and also added a dash of cumin, garlic powder, and chili powder to the flour mix. Delicious! Definitely will make this again.
Stella I. 29 May 2016
I couldn't believe how delicious this was. The sauce is on point. So is the slaw. Definitely tastes just like restaurant quality!
Paul M. 28 Apr 2016
Done this dish about five times now. It's a go to recipe when having guests over. Spicy, crunchy and just plain delicious. Takes me back to the first time I tried one in Mexico on the Baja peninsula. Try it.
Angielina Reyes 15 Mar 2016
This turned out soo good. My husband & 9 yr old loved it! The sauce was creamy & spicy just the way I like it! Will definitely put it into the dinner rotation!
Danielle Krivda 29 Feb 2016
Delicious!! And super easy a family favorite . I didn't fry the fish but pan seared it in coconut oil for a little healthier twist! Still totally yummy!!
