GOOD / BAD: 

The Good: This recipe is low in calories, cholesterol, saturated fat, and sodium.  It is high in fiber, potassium and includes a good amount of monounsaturated fat ('good' fat).

The Bad: There is still question in the medical community on the health risks/benefits of alcohol.  Additionally, battering the fish increases the fat content, cholesterol, sodium and carbohydrates.

2 servings

Ingredients

  • Tomato & Avocado Salsa, (recipe follows) or store-bought fresh salsa
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • 1/3 cup beer
  • 8 ounces tilapia fillet, cut crosswise into 1-inch wide strips
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 4 corn tortillas, warmed

Preparation

  1. Prepare Tomato & Avocado Salsa, if using.
  2. Combine flour, cumin, salt and cayenne in a medium bowl. Whisk in beer to create a batter.
  3. Coat tilapia pieces in the batter. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Letting excess batter drip back into the bowl, add the fish to the pan; cook until crispy and golden, 2 to 4 minutes per side. Serve the fish with tortillas and salsa.
