    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!

    did it so easy to prepare and my family love it 🤗
    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!

    pretty good. I made some changes, just used mayo, garlic and sirachi to make chipolte sauce, used Gluten-free flour, and made my own coleslaw.
