My first experience with fish tacos was in Ensenada, Mexico and they were delicious! Here's my version.

Something about a good fish taco just screams summer. The beer batter is light and crunchy, perfect with the cod. Hot sauce brings a bit of heat but is a great complement to the tanginess of the lime and tartar sauce. Crispy cabbage on top of these refreshing fish tacos is excellent. The Test Kitchen
