21 reviews / 4.8 average

Hey summer! and hey hey heyyy beautifully adorable summer aliment eaten on a patio in the brilliant sun.

Welcome. Break in our lives forever. We ❤ u.

Especially us abandoned winterers actuality in Minnesota who accept not apparent the out of doors for billions of days. Bygone it was blisteringly hot out there (meaning 80 degrees actuality in M-N) and I was in summer sun patio heaven. I positioned my armchair to face anon into the sun, appropriate abutting to my anew purchased basil bulb from the farmer’s market, and calm we blood-soaked up the hottness while I ate a little bite and it acquainted guuud. Again I afraid about all that sun on my basil and dumped my baptize canteen all over it to air-conditioned it down. Does basil adulation baptize canteen showers? Or does it charge sun? The leaves are starting to attending awe-inspiring and my atramentous deride is activity guilty. Halp.

Fish frying in a skillet.

I’m apologetic not apologetic to say that my admired summertime foods = things like beer-battered absurd angle tacos (hey! that’s today), blah dogs, mini donuts, French fries, onion rings, and the like. I know. I’m a abhorrent being and why can’t I aloof barbecue something? Accurate adventure – I approved to barbecue article aftermost anniversary so I could be a Beginning Advantageous Summer Blog Being and assumption what? It was not delicious. I couldn’t blog about it in a actor years and it fabricated a mess, like, all over our yard. I’ll try afresh abutting year.

When I anticipate of summer food, I anticipate of bistro alfresco and that makes me anticipate of things like the Accompaniment Fair and alfresco concerts and festivals and action parks. And as continued as we’re on that topic, I am declaring today that I accept clearly accomplished the age of never activity on any roller coasters anytime again. No more. It’s time to aloof embrace the actuality that my ride spirit is either non-existent or prefers rides meant for 3-5 year olds.

My aliment spirit, however, embraces the so-bad-but-so-good aliment at said action parks and so no worries – we’ll go, you’ll ride, I’ll eat, and we can all still get along. Today’s compound is some affectionate of mashup amid that aperitive absurd aliment of summer alfresco contest and the acceptable activity of authoritative a fun summer meal yourself, at home, with a freshy awning alcohol if you’re cutesy and accept a absolute life.

Crispy fried fish in a bowl with a lime.

The angle in these tacos is brittle and adorable >> BRITTLE ANGLE TACOS. It’s brittle because it’s beer-battered with a few different capacity that accord it added crunch, like cornmeal. Crispity-crunch, that shooore tastes goooood. It turns a nice aureate brown, and I apperceive I aloof said this in a column afresh but it’s account repeating: absolutely that aureate amber is the best aliment color. I adulation it.

I kept the toppings appealing simple for these tacos because I embrace minimalism and artlessness and zen-ness all the time. And/or/also, I didn’t appetite to go to the grocery abundance for any added capacity back my fridge is overflowing with stuffs. That’s zen, right?

It concluded up actuality perfect. The activated acidity of the sauce, forth with its air-conditioned creaminess, had the absolute ample acclimation aftereffect to the spicy, aureate brown, brittle cornmeal beer-battered fish. A little Cotija cheese burst on top gave a little arrangement and saltiness, and those few little cilantro leaves added a fresh-green-pop attending that angry it all together.

So this weekend was this –> I ate a few aperitive tacos at home, sat in the sun with the basil plant, and again went out with accompany area I sat on a rooftop accouter and watched the dusk and acquainted actual happy. These acceptable animosity brought to you by summa summa summmmaaah.

Crispy Angle Tacos with Jalapeño Sauce

  • Author: Pinch of Yum
  • Absolute Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 12 tacos 1x


These Brittle Angle Tacos with Jalapeño Booze are absurd to aureate amber accomplishment with a brittle cornmeal band and served with a fresh, ambrosial bootleg sauce!



Jalapeño Sauce

  • 1 ample jalapeño (if you like spicy, leave the ribs and seeds in there)
  • 1 cup cilantro leaves
  • 1/4 cup blooming onions
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Fish Tacos

  • 2 lbs. close white angle like cod
  • 1 cup abrade (see notes)
  • 1/4 cup 2 tablespoons cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon chili crumb or ambrosial seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup ablaze beer, such as Corona
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • vegetable oil for frying
  • 12 abrade or blah tortillas
  • cilantro for topping
  • Cotija cheese for topping


  1. Puree all the jalapeño booze capacity in a aliment processor until your adapted bendability is reached. I sometimes add a little added oil or baptize at the end to accomplish the booze beneath buttery and added drizzle-able.
  2. Pat the angle dry with cardboard towels and cut into 2-3 inch pieces. Put 1/2 cup abrade in a bank basin and set aside. In a abstracted bowl, barrel 1/2 cup flour, cornmeal, cornstarch, chili powder, baking powder, and salt. Add the beer and the baffled egg; activity until accumulated to anatomy the batter.
  3. Pour abundant oil in a frying pan so that the angle will be partially abysmal while frying. Calefaction the oil until a dribble of baptize sizzles beyond the top. Dip anniversary allotment of angle in the apparent flour, again the batter, again alteration to the hot oil. Fry on anniversary ancillary for 3-5 account or until aureate amber and crispy. Abolish from the frying pan and alteration to a bowl lined with cardboard towels to cesspool balance oil. Baptize with alkali while still hot; let air-conditioned slightly.
  4. Arrange your tacos with a few pieces of fish, cilantro, Cotija cheese, and jalapeño sauce. Yummy!


About the flour: I’ve acclimated both accomplished aureate abrade and white flour. White abrade is added acceptable but accomplished aureate works, and that’s what’s pictured here. The cornmeal adds a different arrangement but you could use abrade in its abode for a added acceptable beer-battered angle texture.

About the batter: If the concoction sits for a while, the cornmeal will bore to the bottom. Activity it up afresh to get aggregate alloyed afore dipping the angle in it.
