Ingredients

Fish Tacos:

8 ounces mahi mahi fillets, cut into even strips

3/4 cup dark beer

1 cup vegetable oil, for frying

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon salt

Coleslaw:

6 tablespoons red cabbage, cut into tiny pieces

6 tablespoons carrots, shredded

10 tablespoons orange juice

Salt and freshly ground pepper

Cilantro Sauce:

10 tablespoons sour cream

6 tablespoons fresh cilantro

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

2 small cloves garlic

Salt and freshly ground pepper
