Beer Battered Fish Tacos with Fire Roasted Salsa

Festus Fox gave us some albacore tuna that he had caught on one of his deep sea fishing trips and we decided to whip up some beer battered fish tacos and have them over for dinner (don't worry... all the alcohol cooks out). The toughest part of this recipe is having to purchase just one bottle of beer and then hide the bottle from the kids... (It's best to make the batter when kids aren't around so that you don't have to explain anything)...

Batter
1 cup of flour
1 cup of beer
garlic powder to taste
black pepper to taste

I just portioned out the fish into taco sized pieces, sprinkled them with a little sea salt and then dredged them in the batter... Fry them in a deep fryer (or a pot with canola oil... be careful!) until golden brown. We served them with shaved cabbage, white sauce (equal parts mayonnaise and sour cream with a little lime juice), fresh lime wedges and a variety of salsas.... Warm some fresh corn tortillas and you're done.... Cod is also a great fish to use for these tacos... But if someone gives us albacore, we'll use albacore. Thanks Foxes....

Byron - I've just stumbled onto your blog. Amazing. Can't wait to get my grill really fired up and give some of what you've posted, now that it's finally stopped being miserable here in Chicago.

I don't like to cook much, but your blog is very inspiring. I just may have to try one of your dishes. Very impressive.

Hey Mike.... We miss you guys here in Temecula... I've lived through a few cold winters in some other locations and I don't envy you... Come back to Southern California...

We've been using our barbecue a bit more now that it's warmer here too. I'll post some pictures of some great Cedar Plank Salmon that you'll definitely have to try. It's one of our favorites.
