All of us at St. Supéry Estate are pretty excited about #SauvBlanc Day coming up on May 17th and a lot of our conversations around the winery have turned to our favorite food and Sauvignon Blanc pairings. Rumor has it Pam, one of our spectacular wine educators, has the best fish taco recipe that she serves with our Dollarhide Estate Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc. Luckily, we were able to convince Pam to reveal her top notch fish taco recipe so we can share it with you too!
Pam’s Baja Style Fish Tacos
1 lb white fish (Halibut, Cod and Tilapia all work well)
½ - ¾ cup Krusteaz pancake batter
½ – ¾ cup Mexican beer
3 – 4 drops of your favorite hot sauce
½ cup mayo
Lime juice (4 limes)
Salt & pepper
Mix pancake batter, beer and hot sauce together. Let sit for a few minutes.
Prepare white sauce: mix together mayo, lime juice, salt and pepper. Set aside to top tacos.
Heat canola oil on medium high heat. While oil is heating, coat fish in the batter. Reduce heat to medium and fry fish to golden brown.
Heat corn tortillas on a griddle, fry pan or bbq. Top with fish and white sauce. Dress with shredded cabbage, cilantro and tomatoes if desired.
Serve with St. Supéry Napa Valley, Dollarhide Estate Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc and enjoy!
