    Delicious! Everything was great and will add this to our rotation. Will try mixing mayo and Greek yogurt for the cream next time!

    The fish was frozen so the batter didn’t really stick to so I put fish in flour then batter, and my daughter said it need more salt. Other than that it was delicious and I even cooked them in my air fryer.

    These are great! I added some shredded carrots to the cabbage mixture. The sauce is so simple but so delicious. I sometimes use frozen fish fillets and it works out great. Highly recommend!

    Used less salt, but wow these are good! Really light and crispy fish, perfect flavor combos with the pickled cabbage/onions/jalapeños and then the sauce!! Definitely will make again!

    Amazing. I made a different dill sauce but the pickled slaw was delicious. Also added a quick Pico de gallo w/ tomato, onion, cilantro, lime juice and salt. Fish was perfect..

    WARNING- FOOD COMA ALERT These were soooo good, I couldn’t stop eating. I used haddock, which is what was freshest at my fishmonger, and it was delicious.

    Really turned out well, and even got rave reviews from my wife who is not big on fish. Next time will try making the curdita and chipotle crema the night before.

    It was amazing. I’m going to definitely make it again. I had to improvise on some of the ingredients because I didn’t have beer or jalapeños. I ended up using ginger beer from Trader Joe’s as a substitute for the beer and it worked out great. Plus adding no jalapeños was fine, but I want to try it with jalapeños next time.

    Firstly sauce was on point!!! I did half Greek yogurt and half mayo and it tasted phenomenal. The fish had a wonderful crisp to them. Pictured uses pork rinds for those who want to go carb free. My family had the original recipe and had good reviews.

    Big fan! Careful not to add too much beer to the batter. I did unfortunately just that, but they still were amazing. I added diced avocado with tangy tomatillo dressing. Living in Switzerland it’s hard to find adobo, sadly, so I took some fresh spicy peppers roasted in the oven de-skinned and followed the recipe from there!

    This recipe was excellent! And so easy to put together. A Mexican coleslaw and chipotle mayo went great with it. There was nothing left, so a big hit with the family. A excellent dish for the warmer weather. Will definitely make this again!
