Beer Battered Fish Tacos

I have oh just a few things on my mind these days. But more on that another day, one thing that for sure tops the list as I am sure yours as well is that fantastic season called SUMMER!! That's right its almost here and this past weekend we had some fantastic weather and I wanted something yummy to go with it. We decided fish tacos with coleslaw!!  I went online to find a recipe and i took a little from many different sites to get the following.

Fish sticks
1 lb cod or tillapia
1 cup flower plus a little extra
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup beer

1 package slaw mix 
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
1/4 cup Mayonnaise 
1/4 cup (for me this ended up being a little too much I would start with half of this and as you see fit)
1 tablespoon honey
Salt and pepper to taste

Start with the slaw and let it sit in the fridge while making the fish. Its very easy mix all together in the bowl and adjust flavors to your taste buds.

For the fish mix all the dry ingredients. Cut the fish into strips that will fit nicely into a corn tortilla. After cutting the fish use the little extra flour and dust the fish to make dry them up a little. Now mix together the beer and egg then poor quickly into the dry mix, there will be some lumps.

Heat your frying oil about a quart to 375. Dip fish sticks into batter and fry until lightly golden and crispy about 3-4 minutes.

Now if you just wanted some homemade fish sticks these are yummy just as is, but we put them in some warmed corn tortillas with the homemade slaw. The only thing I want to do different next time is add some homemade pico. 

These were great for a Sunday night dinner after a beautiful day. We finished it off with a easy strawberries and cool whip on angel food cakes! 

Whats everyone else enjoy eating ones the weather starts getting so pretty out??
