    • Salt
    • Black pepper
    • Pinch cayenne pepper
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
    • 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
    • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 (12 ounce) bottle/can of beer
    • Vegetable oil, for frying (about 3 cups)
    • Corn or flour tortillas, warm (about 24 tortillas so you can double up on each taco) - use "Fajita Size" if you're using Flour tortillas
    • Cilantro leaves, lime, sliced radishes, for garnish
    • Shredded Cheese (Mexican Blend or Cheddar, optional)
  • Preparation
    • Prepare your spicy garlic-lime mayo by placing all ingredients into a food processor and processing until smooth and combined; pour into a bowl, or into a squeeze bottle, ideally.
    • Prepare your citrus slaw by whisking together the orange zest, orange juice, lime juice, pinch of salt and pepper, agave or honey, and oil until well-combined (you can also shake these vigorously in a small mason jar for convenience), and set aside for a moment; add both of your shredded cabbages and the cilantro into a medium-size bowl, and toss the dressing you just made with the cabbage/cilantro; keep cold.
    • To prepare you fish tacos, add your cod pieces to a bowl and season with a couple of pinches of salt and pepper, plus the cayenne, cumin, coriander and garlic powder; allow them to marinate for a few minutes while you get your oil ready and prepare to fry.
    • Prepare a baking sheet with foil and a place a wire rack over top (if you have one) to hold the cod once it’s been fried; next, add enough oil to a deep pan or a medium-size pot so that the fish can be submerged when you fry it (about 3 cups), and bring it to 365°.
    • While your oil heats, whisk together the flour with a couple of pinches of salt and pepper, and slowly pour in the beer and whisk just until smooth; once the oil is hot, dip the pieces of cod into the batter and fry in batches (it took 3 batches for me) for a 3-4 minutes or until golden-brown.
    • To assemble, add a couple of pieces of the fried cod to the bottom of a couple of corn tortillas, top with a generous amount of the slaw, add in some radishes (if using), drizzle the spicy garlic-lime sauce liberally over top, and finish with some cheese, extra cilantro and a squeeze of lime.
