Heat oil in a large pot/saucepan.
While the oil is heating, coat the fish first in the seasoned flour, then in the beaten egg and finally in the seasoned breadcrumbs. You can repeat the egg and breadcrumb step if you want a thicker coating on the fish.
When the oil is hot, fry the fish in batches for 5-7 minutes until they are crisp and golden.
Remove from the oil and drain on kitchen paper.
Make the spicy crema by combining all the ingredients and mixing well.
To serve, place the fried fish and toppings of your choice onto warmed corn tortillas, drizzle with the crema and serve.
