The healthier way to make these is to grill the fish instead of deep frying it. You can make it either way. In this recipe try to batter the fish and then fried it. The tacos can be delicious!
  Corn tortillas 16
  White fish fillets 8 (Such As Basa, Tilapia, Cat Fish Or Halibut)
  Flour 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Beer 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Mexican Variety)
  Yogurt 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Mayonnaise 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Minced shallots 1 Tablespoon
  Limes 2
  Garlic powder 1 Teaspoon
  Cumin 1 Teaspoon
  Chopped cilantro 2 Tablespoon
  Vegetable oil 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Shredded cabbage 2 Cup (32 tbs) (Use Either Green Or Red Variety)
  Tomato 1 Large, chopped
  Salt To Taste

Rinse and pat dry the fish.
Cut each fillet into 4 strips.
Place in a bowl and squeeze 1 of the limes, covering completely with juice.
Set aside for 15 minutes.
In a bowl mix the flour and beer. Whisk well and season with salt. Set aside for 15 minutes.
In another bowl mix together the yogurt, mayonnaise, the juice of the other lime, cumin, garlic and cilantro.
Whisk until blended well and season with salt to taste.
Fill a large skillet with oil and heat until the oil is very hot. Place the fish, one slice at a time, into the batter.
Let the excess batter drip and place the fish in a single layer (work in batches).
Fry the fish until evenly browned, turning once. Remove onto paper towels and drain off the excess oil.
Place a tortilla on top of another one. Smear with yogurt sauce.
Place two pieces of fried batter in the middle.
Top with cabbage and tomatoes.
Serve the dish.
