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.

Wonderful! We make these at least 2 or 3 times a month.
awesome!!!! I will definitely make again
I really enjoyed this recipe, although I agree with Kathy that it calls for way to much slaw.
Angela R. 21 May
It turned out great. I didn’t stick to the recipe though. I used tilapia

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.
Delicious really good recipe

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!

This one may have just been beyond me. The frying did not turn out at all.

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.

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!

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

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!

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 R. 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!

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!!
