Crispy Fish Tacos

In my opinion, crispy fish tacos are one of the best options at any tacos spot. They’re usually the most difficult to mess up. All you need are fish, flour, seasonings, and beer or carbonated water. The toppings are really optional but I like mine with a purple cabbage slaw, crispy garlic, and chopped apples.
