I have to admit, I had some problems with this one. The cream sauce was wonderful, I got it from the Food Network. But i had some problems with the fish, it lost its flavor with the cream sauce... any ideas on how to give it a better flavor? But it was still good and my husband liked it, of course its no Pedros (which my brother in law got me hooked on).

For the Batter- Whisk flour, salt, pepper and buttermilk (to a pancake like consistency) in a bowl. Set aside and let rest for 15 mins
For Cream Sauce- Add mayonaise, sour cream, lemon zest, lemon juice and water (optional) into a bowl. Season to taste with Salt and Pepper.
For the Fish- In a large skillet, add enough oil to make 1 inch thick. Heat to 350 degrees. Dip fish pieces in batter and fry in hot oil until golden brown, about 5 mins. Transfer to paper towel to drain. Make tacos with Corn tortillas, fish, shredded cabbage and cream.
