Surf, sun, sand and fish tacos. That is Cali’s state slogan, right? They might think about changing it once they try these Baja Fish Tacos in boats that can stand up longer than a surfer catching their first wave of the morning.
Red snapper, halibut and mahi mahi are local to the area and are excellent choices for fish tacos. Cod fillets (1 1/2 inches thick) are a good substitute, if needed.
Pop open a bottle of beer 20 minutes before using so bubbles will disappear and batter is easier to mix.
Using a candy thermometer/deep frying thermometer helps to ensure correct temperature when frying to give best results.
