  1. Mexican Tempura Fried Fish
  2. Chipotle coleslaw

Step 1
Compile the sandwich after making the chipotle mayo, the chipotle coleslaw and the fried fish. I prefer to toast the bread, add the chipotle mayo, the fried fish, and then the chipotle coleslaw.

See Recipes below for each layer of the taco:
