“Fast Foodies” co-hosts Jeremy Ford and Justin Sutherland went head-to-head to create a “fast” food snack that you can make in a matter of minutes. Here, “Top Chef” winner Jeremy Ford cooks up Crispy Fish Tacos with Sriracha Mayo and Spicy Coleslaw, while “Iron Chef” winner Justin Sutherland shared his quick and easy Jalapeño Pickle Roll Hot Dog recipe. 

“I’m sticking with the fast-food theme. One of my favorites is a crispy fish taco since [my restaurant, Stubborn Seed] is three blocks from the ocean in Florida.” —Chef Jeremy

The friendly competition didn’t stop here! The chefs also took part in our Mystery Meal Challenge, which involved cooking with a box of surprise ingredients, three ingredients of choice and a handful of pantry items. Watch that go down here.

Yield Preparation

For the coleslaw, in a large bowl, toss together all the ingredients, then let sit while you prepare the fish. 
For the fish, heat about 2 to 3 inches of oil in a deep fryer or medium heavy-bottomed pot to 375°F. 

Pour the club soda into a medium bowl. In a small bowl, combine the flour and ½ teaspoon salt and mix well. Add the flour mixture to the club soda and whisk until smooth. Let the batter sit for 5 minutes. 

Place some flour for dredging into a shallow container. Add the fish, coat with the flour, then shake off any excess. Transfer the fish to the batter, coat completely, then fry in the hot oil (in batches, if needed) until deep golden. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate, blot well and season with salt and pepper.

To serve, top each corn tortilla with some sriracha mayo, a piece of fried fish and a small mound of slaw. Serve with a wedge of lime and boom—there ya have it.
