Beer Battered Fish Tacos


Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 6 minutes

Servings: 8

Crispy taco shells filled with Mexican beer battered fish. Topped with shredded red cabbage, chimichurri aioli and fresh jalapenos.


Chimichurri Aioli:

1 can (4.5 oz) Old El Paso® chopped green chiles

1/3 cup packed fresh parsley

3/4 cup packed fresh cilantro

1 small clove garlic, crushed

1/2 cup mayonnaise

Crispy Fish Filling:

Vegetable oil for deep frying

1 cup Gold Medal® all-purpose flour

1 1/4 cups Mexican beer

1 lb firm white fish fillets (such as cod)

1 tsp coarse sea salt

Tortillas and Toppings:

8 Old El Paso® Stand 'N Stuff™ taco shells, heated as directed on package

1 cup shredded red cabbage

2 jalapeño chiles, thinly sliced

1 lime, cut into wedges


In food processor, place Chimichurri Aioli ingredients. Cover; process, using quick on-and-off motions, until smooth. Empty into bowl, and refrigerate until ready to serve.

In deep fryer or heavy saucepan, heat at least 2 inches oil to 350°F. While oil is heating, mix flour and beer in medium bowl. Cut fish fillets into cubes. Dip cubes into batter, and fry fish in batches, about 3 minutes per side, until golden brown and cooked through. Drain on paper towels; sprinkle lightly with salt.

Fill each taco shell with fish, cabbage, a dollop of aioli and chiles. Serve with lime wedges.

For a fun variation, try substituting Old El Paso® flour tortillas for the Stand 'N Stuff® taco shells.

Your family will love this Chimichurri Aioli. If you have any left, cover and refrigerate to use later with fish, meat and veggies.
