Beer Battered Fish Tacos, Green Salsa

  • 200g rice flour, plus 300g additional for dredging
  • 150g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1½ bottles of beer, cold
  • 650g white fish cut into 12 pieces
  • Sea salt & freshly milled pepper
  • 12 soft tortillas
  • 12 tbs mayonnaise
  • ¼ small cabbage, shredded
  • ½ bunch radish, thinly sliced
  • ½ bunch coriander, coarsely chopped
  • ½ small onion, finely chopped & rinsed under cold water
  • Lime wedges, to serve



Combine rice flour, plain flour & baking powder & mix together. Add the beer & whisk gently until just combined. Chill batter until ready to use.

Preheat deep fryer to 180c. Place additional rice flour in a large bowl. Season fish pieces then dredge in rice flour. Dip fish into the batter and carefully add to hot oil. Fry until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a cake rack to drain & season with sea salt.

To assemble the tacos, lay out the warmed tortillas on serving plates. Place a tablespoon of mayonnaise in the centre of each tortilla followed by cabbage, radish slices, coriander & onion. Place a piece of fish on each tortilla and top with a spoonful of salsa.

  • 1 green chilli, chopped
  • Sea salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • 100ml EVOO

Preheat the oven to 200C. Roast almonds & walnuts separately. Rub walnuts in a tea towel to remove skins, then leave to cool. Blitz nuts, garlic, herbs, salt and black pepper with a little olive oil. With the motor running, slowly add the remaining oil and verjuice. The consistency should be like pesto.
