I don’t always do fried. But every now and then I crave that light and airy crisp of beer battered fish tacos. Today I decided to do them a little different by turning some halibut filet’s into moist, flaky and crunchy popcorn bites.

I’ve done fish taco bowls before on the blog, but these are quite special. I cut the halibut into bite-sized pieces, fried till golden brown. Then topped them off with a spicy cilantro, avocado mixture that I’ve used before in my Peruvian chicken saltados, and altered a tad. Quite delicious!

Topping the beer battered halibut on top of some basmati rice, black beans and a little red cabbage, give you that fish taco or even fish burrito feel without the heaviness of a tortilla.

But now that I think about it, how bomb would this be wrapped in a tortilla?! Welp. Looks like I got a recipe idea for later!

Definitely make sure you use a Mexican beer, preferably a dark one. I like to go with Pacifico, but Modelo and Dos Equis, are good ones too!

And if you’re a spicy fan like me, add a serrano pepper to the avocado sauce. It will add a bunch of heat and is delicious to douse the rice in as well! Definitely one of my favorites for the fall!
