Baja-Style Fish Tacos


Baja-Style Fish Tacos // A Cozy Ktichen

If I ever get married I’d want fish tacos served at my wedding. And not just any fish tacos but Ricky’s Fish Tacos. They’re incredible. The batter is flakey, flavorful and the fish tastes fresh. They’re nearly identical to the ones you’d get if you were sitting in a bathing suit on the beaches of Baja, Mexico. These things are my first love. And they screeeaaam at the top of their lungs summah.

Baja-Style Fish Tacos // A Cozy Kitchen

Last summer I had the lucky chance to pick Ricky’s brain all about his batter. He told me the three musts for good fish taco batter is as follows:

1. Beer
2. Lots of Mexican oregano
3. Lots of ground mustard.

So, I followed his tips and made my own version. They came in at a close second—he is, after all, the pro—but I was still pretty pumped about them. Top ’em with a refreshing and spicy cabbage slaw…heaven. The full recipe is over on Etsy! Check it out.

Oh and get pumped because tomorrow is the first post of Ice Cream Week here on A Cozy Kitchen. Yes, Ice Cream Week is totally a thing.

    Fish tacos (done right) are probably in my top five most loved dishes. Sadly, I’ve never made them myself… so I think your recipe is gonna have to be my first try!! πŸ™‚

    Yes to fish tacos! I’ve never battered my fish when I make them at home, but now I think I’m going to have to give it a try. And absolutely yes to the oregano! It makes an appearance in almost all the Mexican food at our house. πŸ™‚

    I served cupcakes for my wedding because I can’t imagine life without cupcakes (and my husband). If I had another go (with the same man, of course), I’d serve these tacos too. I might sabotage my bro’s future wedding and try to serve these. Love fried fish wrapped in any kind of carbs.
