Ensenada style tacos are a Mexican dish consisting of fish, shrimp, and octopus cooked in a spicy tomato sauce. These tacos have been enjoyed by the people of Baja California since the 1970s, when they were introduced to the region by fishermen from Ensenada.

Fish tacos are popular in Mexico’s Baja California area. However, since they aren’t as prevalent in the United States and overseas, I wanted to include a taste of Baja California in this dish. The distinctive sour cream sauce prepared in this Pacific port town is what distinguishes these tacos as Ensendada-style. Open a drink and squeeze some fresh lime to transport yourself to Mexico!

Methods Explained in Detail

  • Step No 1

    To create the soured cream, whisk together all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl until well combined and somewhat runny but not watery. To equalize the thickness, add a bit extra sour cream and mayonnaise if it’s too runny. Keep it refrigerated until you’re ready to use it. To create the dry dredging, mix together all of the ingredients in a small dish.

  • Step No 2

    In a big shallow basin, mix the flour, salt, pepper, paprika, and granulated garlic for the fish batter. Combine the eggs and beer in a mixing bowl. The consistency of the batter should be similar to that of pancake batter. If it’s too thick, thin it out with a little cold water.

  • Step No 3

    In a deep fat fryer, heat the oil to 190°C/375°F. Placed a cooling rack over a baking sheet to drain any leftover grease before frying the fish (if you don’t have a cooling rack, kitchen paper set over a flat plate would do). Toss the red snapper fillets in the dry dredge one at a time to coat. Place on a plate or baking tray to cool. Dredge the fish in the batter in stages, letting excess to drop out before gently placing them in the deep fat fryer. Fry for 3–5 minutes, until golden brown on all sides, turning once the bottom has browned. Remove to a wire rack to drain and season with sea salt right away.

  • Step No 4

    Preheat a frying pan over high heat until it’s nice and hot while the fish is cooking. Reduce the heat to low and cook the tortillas for approximately a minute on each side, or until they are pliable, wrapping them in a tea towel to keep warm. To serve, top each tortilla with a piece of fried fish, shredded cabbage, soured cream, and red chili and coriander. Along with the lime wedges, serve.
