"These fish tacos have a delicious tequila-lime-chili flavor and are topped with a crunchy ranchero coleslaw. They are very easy to make. Optional toppings can include black beans, jalapeno peppers, diced tomato, julienned carrots, and green onions." — JohnBailey

fresh lime juice
cod fillet, cut into 3- by 1-inch strips
canned black beans, rinsed and drained
jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
1 (12 ounce) package
chopped green onions
oil for deep frying
corn or flour tortilla
I used the marinade and then I baked the fish in the marinade. We did not coat the fish with the flour and stuff. It was very good. It had a great flavor combo!!
Too much chili powder. And I love spice!
Cut the chili powder in half???
I did not care for this recipe.
These taste good, but having lived in Baja and Baja Sur for over two years, I can tell these are not _authentic_ baja-style fish tacos... perhaps they're inspired by the orginal, but there are some weird ingredients in here. Still, though, they do taste well.

It's an authentic Baja shrimp taco recipe, using the exact ingredients you'll find at the taco shops From Cabo all the way up to TJ, and it's delicious.
i am from tijuana B.C. and this is not baja style fish tacos is not tequila it's dark cerveza (negra modelo) is a good brand... and a good fish is "blanco del nilo" or "angelito"
Not good. There was way to much chili powder.
The coleslaw mix was too heavy with the mayo and sourcream. The way the fish was prepared was not very flavorful. It wasn't the way fresh, fish tacos should taste...
This was delicious! Everyone loved it. I'd use a little less salt next time, but my family all said no, keep it the same. I'm the cook, so I get to do what I want, but I wouldn't change anything else.
