Baja Style Fish Tacos

Mom gave us a lot of fish so I'm trying different things to find something we love. I love the beer breading on this fish and the whole "taco" thing was good but nothing for the family book.

Me: 8
Hunter: 7.5
Corrine 10.5
1/2 lb fish fillets, cut lengthwise into strips
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
4 ounces beer
2 eggs, separated
oil, necessary (for frying)
flour tortillas, warmed to soften

For the garnish
shredded cabbage, lightly dressed with Marie's cole slaw dressing

Pat the fish filet strips dry with paper towels.
Mix the flour, salt, pepper, vegetable oil and egg yolks and beer to form a batter.
Beat the egg whites until stiff, and fold into the mixture.
In a large skillet, heat oil with a depth of no more than 1 inch.
Dip each fish strip in the batter, fry quickly on one side, turning to fry the other until golden brown. This should only take a couple of minutes on each side. Drain on paper towels.
Arrange pieces of fish in softened tortillas and serve at once accompanied by the shredded cabbage.
