Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 pound Flounder (Or Any Other White Fish)
  • 1 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Cayenne
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt + 1 Pinch (Divided)
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 cup Corona (or other beer of choice)
  • 1/2 cup Sour Cream
  • 1/4 cup Mayo
  • 1 Lime (Juiced)
  • 2 teaspoons Old bay
  • Dash of Hot Sauce (Optional)
  • Flour Tortillas
  • 1/2 bag Coleslaw Mix
  • Peanut Oil (or other oil for frying)

Mango Salsa

  • 1 Fresh Mango (Diced)
  • 1 Small Red Bell Pepper (Diced)
  • 1/2 Red Onion (Diced)
  • 2 tablespoons Chopped Fresh Cilantro
  • 1 Fresh Jalapeno (Diced)
  • 1 Lime (Juiced)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cumin
  • Pinch of Salt

Instructions

  1. Prepare the mango salsa: Combine diced mango, red bell pepper, red onion, cilantro, diced jalapeno, lime juice cumin and salt in a medium bowl. Stir until well combined and set in the refrigerator. 
  2. Prepare the Baja Sauce and Slaw: In a small bowl, combine sour cream, mayonnaise, lime juice, Old Bay Seasoning, and a dash of hot sauce (if using). Whisk until combined. Then, in a separate large bowl, add coleslaw and season with a pinch of salt. Add 3 tablespoons of the Baja Sauce and toss to combine and set aside. Reserve the remaining Baja sauce for serving.
  3. Prepare the Batter: In a large bowl, whisk together flour, salt, and cayenne. Then add in one egg and the beer and mix well, avoiding clumping.
  4. Cook The Flounder: In a CanCooker Jr, or equivalent, heat 1.5 inches of oil to 350-375°F.
  5. Dip fish into batter and allow excess batter to drip off. Carefully drop into hot oil. Fry fish, turning to brown both sides, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from CanCoker and place on a paper towel lined plate and season with salt. Repeat with all fish.
  6. Place a small amount of slaw in each tortilla, followed by the fish, mango salsa, and a finishing drizzle of remaining Baja Sauce.
