Born south of the border in Baja, Mexico, fish tacos are a SoCal staple—but their sublime simplicity makes them perfect for quick, easy meals by any body of water. Flexibility in type of fish and toppings means you can find a recipe to suit even the pickiest of guests, and letting guests assemble their own tacos means everyone will be happy—and less work for you.
These Beer-Battered Fish Tacos with Chipotle Crema are perfectly balanced, with cool crema to balance out the savory fried fish. For quicker prep, mix the dry ingredients for the beer batter together ahead of time and add the beer—we recommend a Negra Modelo, both to cook with and to drink—when it’s time to start frying.
- Pair with: A bucket of ice cold Negra Modelo
