When I heard that they were looking for a San Diego post, I knew I had just the thing. Fish tacos! I’ve been making fish tacos at home using this technique for a while now and we absolutely love them. In fact, we ate them two days in a row so you know they’re good.

To make the tacos, start by pureeing the chipotle in adobo in the food processor. I usually puree one whole can of the chipotles in adobo at once and then store the extra in a freezer bag in the freezer. Once the chipotles are pureed, remove all but one tablespoon of puree from the food processor.

In the food processor, add the egg to the remaining tablespoon of puree. Blend until frothy.

Remove the fresh fish from the packaging and rinse it. Pat it dry with a paper towel. Using a sharp knife, slice the fish into small pieces that are approximately ½ inch thick. You’ll want the fish to fit (with the toppings) on the tortillas you’ve selected. Add the fish to the batter and make sure it is coated completely.

Everything can be done in advance, including marinating the fish in the batter, but plan on frying the fish just before serving the tacos. Add the canola oil to a heavy bottomed pot. Add the candy thermometer and heat the oil until it reaches 350 degrees.

Once the oil is hot, remove the fish from the batter one piece at a time wiping some of the extra batter on the side of the bowl before adding the fish to the oil. You’ll likely need to fry the fish in a few batches to avoid overcrowding in the oil. Fry each piece for 2 minutes or until lightly golden, then gently flip the fish in the oil so that the other side will get golden. Once completely golden, remove the fish and place it on a paper towel lined plate. Add a sprinkle of salt. Continue until all fish is cooked.

While the fish is cooking, warm the tortillas. I like to char mine slightly over my gas burners on my stovetop. You can also wrap them in foil and heat them in the oven or wrap them in a damp paper towel and warm them in the microwave.
