BATTER-FRIED FISH AND BEEF SAUSAGE TACOS
Prep time 30 mins Cooking time 10 mins Makes 10
1 cup of plain flour ½ tsp baking powder ½ tsp salt ½ cup non-alcoholic beer 40g spicy beef sausage, sliced ½ cup French-style mayonnaise Zest and juice of 1 lime Oil, for cooking 2 large pieces of kingklip, cut into 2cm chunks 10 mini tortillas 3 gem lettuces, sliced finely
To make the batter, sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Gradually whisk in the non-alcoholic beer to make a smooth batter. Cover and set aside for 30 minutes. Dry-fry the spicy sausage slices in a pan until crispy and set aside. Mix mayonnaise with lime juice and zest and set aside. Heat some oil in a large saucepan to 190°C (to test, a small piece of bread should turn golden in 40 seconds). Season the fish well, then dip into the batter and fry, four pieces at a time, until golden brown and cooked through. Drain on towel and repeat the process with the rest of the fish. To assemble the tacos, place a little lettuce in the middle, top with the fish and sausage slices and drizzle with mayonnaise. Serve hot.
