Method
  1. Heat oil to 180c in a sturdy pot
  2. Mix together mayo, sriracha, and chipotle then set aside.
  3. Into a bowl, add 150g plain flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, beer, and vodka. Whisk to create a smoothish batter - lumps are okay.
  4. Add the remaining flour, salt, pepper and oregano to a bowl.
  5. Chop the fish into 8 strips and dip each chunk into the flour, shake off any excess then dip it straight into the wet fish batter, making sure it is thoroughly coated.
  6. Then, carefully place fish into the oil and repeat for all fish chunks.
  7. Leave to fry for 4-5 minutes until golden and crunchy.
  8. Once your fish is ready, place it on some kitchen roll to cool down. Meanwhile, warm up your tortillas.
  9. Take a tortilla, place some cabbage on the bottom, followed chipotle mayonnaise, then the fried fish and onions. Top with a couple of coriander leaves, a squeeze of lime and a pinch of salt.
