Instructions
    1.

    Season the raw fish generously with blackening spice and set aside.

    2.

    Heat the flour tortillas in a pan and keep warm wrapped in a kitchen towel.

    3.

    Heat 4-5 cups of vegetable oil in a deep, heavy bottomed Stock Pot. Bring the oil to 350F.

    4.

    Dip the fish in the tempura batter to coat completely while allowing the excess to drip off.

    5.

    Carefully place the battered fish into the oil and fry until golden brown, approximately 5 minutes.

    6.

    Do not overcrowd pot and try to keep the temperature at 350F.

    7.

    Remove fish from oil with a slotted spoon or tongs and drain on a paper towel.

    8.

    Place fried fish in a tortilla. Spoon some of the Baja Sauce on top, then add some of the Cole Slaw and Pickled Onions. Garnish with a small sprig of cilantro and a slice of avocado and serve with a lime wedge on the side.
