First, heat an ample amount of vegetable oil to 365 degrees Fahrenheit in a large frying pan or deep fryer. While the oil is heating, make the beer batter by whisking together in a large bowl 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 tablespoon Old Bay Seafood Seasoning, 1 tablespoon chili powder and 2 teaspoons each of garlic power, salt and freshly ground black pepper. Pour 12 ounces of blond beer or lager into the bowl, add 1 large beaten egg, and whisk the mixture to combine.
Mahi Mahi is suggested for the fish, but any other white fish can be used. Cut the fish fillets into 3-by-1-inch sticks, and dunk them completely into the beer batter before gently laying them into the oil to fry. Fry a few pieces at a time, and remove when they become golden brown on all sides. Season the fried fish fillets with salt immediately after removing from the oil, set them on wire rack on a rimmed baking sheet, and place them in a moderate-temperature oven to keep warm.
To serve, place a fried fish fillet on a corn tortilla, and top with shredded white cabbage, thinly sliced radishes and a Mexican crumbled cheese, such as queso fresco or Cotija cheese.Learn more about Seafood
