Fish & Chips Tacos


Line-caught beer battered haddock, spicy homemade tartar sauce and Hickory Stick fish tacos are a fun new way to serve an old favourite. The soft bite of the fresh haddock with the crunch of the hickory sticks provides a satisfying balance, while the tropical flavour of the squeezed lime cools down the heat of the tartar sauce.


vegetable oil, for frying
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp Old Bay seasoning
¼ tsp salt
1 cup Boxing Rock Hunky Dory Pale Ale
1 ½ lbs Nova Scotia haddock, cut into 3-4” pieces
12 corn or flour tortillas
½ small cabbage, thinly sliced
300 g bag of Hickory Sticks
lime wedges, to serve

Spicy Tartar Sauce
1 cup mayonnaise
6 tbsp sweet pickle relish
1 tbsp capers, chopped
2 tsp. lime juice
2 tsp. chopped chipotles in adobo sauce
salt and pepper, to taste

Directions (serves 6):
  1. Stir together tartar sauce ingredients until well combined. Season to taste with salt and pepper. For a spicier sauce, add additional chipotle.
  2. Heat 1-2 inches of oil in a heavy saucepan to 350°F.
  3. Whisk together the flour, Old Bay and salt. Whisk in the beer until the batter is smooth.
  4. Working in batches, dip the haddock in the batter and gently drop into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown, turning once. Drain on paper towel. Repeat with remaining haddock.
  5. Heat tortillas according to package directions. Top tortillas with cabbage, haddock, spicy tartar sauce, and Hickory Sticks. Serve with lime wedges and additional spicy tartar sauce.
