Beer Battered Fish Tacos with a Spicy Slaw’

My entire flat smells like a fish n’ chips shop. While that smell is delicious when you are starving one night and about to receive crispy french fries with a deep fried white fish, it is not so delicious on a Saturday morning at 7am when you are sporting a raging hangover. But, after double, triple, and quadrupling testing this recipe, much to the joy of my chief taste tester Henry, I have nailed it. Is it worth the 7am smell? Maybe not, but folks, this recipe is a real winner. The crispy fried flaky cod topped with a spicy creamy coleslaw and finished with a charred tortilla and avocado just hits the spot. Most importantly, if you want to make this dinner even easier and don’t want your house to smell like a fish and chips shop, on your way home, pop in, grab the fish, and finish it off at home with the coleslaw and tortilla. I promise, this is one of my best recipes yet and lets us celebrate the final days of summer. Serve with some tortilla chips and guacamole to seal the deal. DSC_6529 DSC_6524
