Fried Fish Tacos

vegetable oil for frying
1 pound talapia fillets
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 cup beer
1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 cups cabbage, shredded
1 lime

1. Heat the oil in a deep fryer or in a large saucepan.
2. In a large mixing bowl mix 1 cup of the flour, the baking powder, salt and cayenne pepper. Add the oil, beer, and hot sauce. Stir until smooth.
3. Cut each fillet into 1 1/2-inch strips. In a small bowl combine the remaining 1/2 cup flour with the garlic powder. Cover the fish in the seasoned flour. Then place each piece of fish in the beer batter, making sure the fish is completely coated. Allow any excess batter to drip into the bowl.
4. Fry the fish in the hot oil until it is golden brown and crispy, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove the fish and drain on a paper towel.
5. Serve tacos with fresh lime juice and topped with shredded cabbage and hot sauce.
