Dieters Beer Battered Fish Tacos with Avocado Salsa

Nom nom.

Avocado Salsa
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1/2 seedless chilli, minced
  • 2-3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 avocado cut into little cubes
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh herbs
  • Pinch of cayenne
Chop all into little bits and stir lightly together. Leave to 'set'.

Healthy Tartare Sauce
  • Greek Yogurt
  • Dill
  • Gerkhin or capers
  • Lemon Juice
  • Salt/pepper
A little bit of everything to taste.

Beer Battered Fish
  • 6 tablespoons flour
  • Few more tablespoons of flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • 1/2 cup beer
  • 500ish gm fishie fishie, cut crosswise into 1-inch wide strips
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
Mix the 6 tbsp flour, cumin, salt, cayenne pepper then added the beer using a whisk. Voila, you have batter!

Give your fish a quick shower under the cold tap to get the smelly icki sticky fishy juices off the outside. Then dunk each piece into the 'few more tablespoons of flour' to coat them.

Warm the two teaspoons of oil in a frying pan on a medium heat, then drunk each piece of fish into the batter, letting the excess drip off into the bowl before laying into the pan. Cook for approx 2-3 minutes on each side.

For people who are being naughty: have with warmed soft tortillas (though these are not that bad for you).

For people who are being good: have the fish with some lemon, salsa and a big salad.
