It's an easy and light recipe and great for anytime of the year. I think that it makes a fall/winter day festive and a great spring/summer season starter. The fish is fresh and inviting and the ingredients are just perfect. I'm still a novice in Mexican cuisine, but I am hoping that I did this recipe some justice!

How to Make Batter Fried Haddock Fish Tacos

Step-by-Step

  1. CITRUS VINAIGRETTE:
    Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend for approximately 1 minute. Set aside.
  2. CABBAGE SLAW:
    Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  3. AVOCADO-MANGO SALSA:
    Gently combine all ingredients in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  4. BATTER FRIED HADDOCK AND TORTILLAS:
    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  5. Wrap the tortillas in aluminum foil and place in the oven until soft and pliant, about 12 minutes. Remove and keep wrapped until ready to use.
  6. In a large pot or deep fryer, heat the oil to 350 degrees F over high heat.
  7. In a large bowl, beat the egg with the milk and water. Add the flour, and baking powder, and whisk to make a thin batter. Dip the fish in the batter, turning to coat, and shake to remove any excess. Fry in batches in the oil until golden and crisp, about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Remove, drain on paper towels.
  8. To serve, place 1 or 2 pieces of the fish inside each tortilla and top with some of the shredded cabbage, avocado-mango salsa and drizzle citrus vinaigrette. Squeeze with lime juice, and top with salsa to taste. Garnish with cilantro and serve immediately. Yield: serves 8

    NOTE: I used blue and yellow corn tortillas for this recipe and made it colorful and I was in a mood. But you can make it your own using whatever you like! Be creative!
