Fish Tacos with Cucumber Salsa

This recipe for fish tacos with cucumber salsa is from the website Real Housemoms.


  • 5 tilapia fillets
  • ¼ cup whole wheat flour
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup beer (It smells bad, but you can’t taste it in the fish) My dad wouldn’t let me measure or pour this!
  • Olive oil
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 cups finely chopped peeled cucumber (I grated the cucumber with a cheese grater)
  • ½ cup chopped tomato
  • ¼ cup chopped onion
  • 1 chopped chili pepper
  • Cilantro
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 3 tsp lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp ground cumin
  • Shredded cheese
  • 20 corn tortillas

Fish Taco Directions

  1. Mix flour, cheese, and salt
  2. Stir in beer
  3. Cut fish into strips
  4. Heat 1 inch of oil and the butter in a deep frying pan over medium heat
  5. Dip the fish in the batter to coat and let the extra drip off
  6. Fry fish, turning once or twice, 4 to 5 minutes or until the fish starts to fall apart
  7. Drain on paper towels
  8. Re-fry the fish with the oil a little hotter, turning once or twice, for about 1 minutes
  9. Drain on paper towels again
  10. Stack 2 corn tortillas, put some cucumber salsa on them, then shredded cheese, and finally fish

I thought it was delicious. You can add tortilla chips for the left-over salsa! We also served guacamole on the side.
