  1. Place tilapia fillets on plate and sprinkle with salt and hot sauce; cover and refrigerate while making cilantro cream sauce.
  2. Combine cream cheese, 2 tablespoons cilantro, mayonnaise, and yogurt in a small bowl or large measuring cup; mix well. Stir lime juice into cream sauce. Cover and refrigerate.
  3. Whisk flour, salt, garlic powder, cayenne, and pepper in a bowl until thoroughly combined; whisk in beer to make a smooth batter.
  4. Heat oil in a large, deep frying pan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  5. Remove fish from refrigerator; dip in beer batter and fry fillets 3 at a time in the hot oil, turning when golden (approximately 2 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness). Transfer to paper towels to drain; set fish on a covered plate to keep warm. Repeat with remaining fillets.
  6. Wrap tortillas in a clean kitchen towel and heat in the microwave until warm, about 20 seconds. Assemble tacos by placing a fish fillet on a warm tortilla. Top with shredded cabbage, a dollop of cilantro cream sauce, a spoonful of salsa, and a sprinkle of chopped cilantro. Serve each taco with a lime quarter for squeezing.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can use any firm white boneless fish fillets in this recipe. I recommend frying in peanut oil for flavor, but you can use canola oil instead, or a combination of the two.
  • To save time, you can use a bag of ready-to-serve shredded cabbage.
  • Editor's Note:
  • The nutrition data for this recipe includes the full amount of the breading ingredients. The actual amount of the breading consumed will vary. We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.

The white sauce was surprisingly good. Even the kids liked it. The batter worked great. For some reason the fish didn't taste good, but I think that may have been something on my end. I will definitely make it again to see what that could have been.

These were very,very yummy tacos, I did however change a few things. I like corn tortillas, and not too much a fan of cream cheese so I did omit that, but the dressing was fantastic without it. All in all this was a great meal, and my family wiped their plates clean quickly!! Thanks for such a great recipe!!!
