The Lenten season is underway. If you are Catholic and you take this time of the year seriously, you’re supposed to ditch beef and chicken on Fridays and eat fish instead.

Personally, I’m not a big fan of the scaly sea creatures -- at least not baked or grilled. But throw it in some batter and deep fry that sucker, or wrap it in a corn tortilla and top it with a sweet and tangy sauce and some pico de gallo and I'm so there.

Because I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who feels that way here are the best places for fried fish and/or fish tacos in El Paso according to the local Yelp community of in-the-know peeps.
