I think that needs to go on the menu soon. They look perfectly golden brown.

They are beautiful.

When we make them, we grill the fish. I really like fried fish, so I will try fried fish tacos next time.

Fish tacos are also great with a mango salsa. We tried them last winter and now they are on the regular rotation.

I see so many recipes for batter for a variety of foods. They call for beer. I don't have alcohol in my house. So I skip over that recipe. Any suggestions for something else? Like milk with a beaten egg maybe? It is what I usually use. But I am just wondering if there is something else.

Addie, by using beer they are going for the fizz, baking powder should do the trick.

Addie, use something carbonated. Seltzer water would do the trick nicely.

Thank you. You too CC and PP. I get it now. I thought it was for the flavor. Not my favorite flavor of the month. Besides it smells. Eeeew!

Addy, I don't know why, but stuff cooked with beer doesn't taste of beer. I hate Guinness, but I had something, in an Irish Pub, that was made with Guinness and it was yummy.

I wouldn't know about the taste. I have never tasted beer. It is the smell. Beer stinks!
