- If using a pan, slice up your fish into chunky fingers. If you are doing it on a BBQ, keep the pieces as big as possible and the skin on.
- Sprinkle over the flour, cumin, paprika, chilli and some salt.
- Give this a good toss around and make sure each piece is coated.
- You could do this a few hours in advance and just keep it in the fridge.
- Next, make up your Pico de Gallo salsa. In a mixing bowl toss around your tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, the zest and juice of one lime, some chopped coriander, a pinch of salt and the olive oil.
- Now make the lime dressing- mix your mayonnaise, yoghurt, garlic, juice and zest of one lime and some salt and pepper.
- Place a frying pan over a hot heat and add some oil for frying. Once the pan is very hot you can gently begin to cook your fish.
- Lay it down on the pan and allow to sizzle without moving it for at least a minute. Using a fish slice, gently turn the fish over and turn down the heat.
- Cook it for another few minutes. You can check the inside of a piece of fish. It’s fully cooked when it goes white and flaky.
- Now it simply the time to assemble your fish tacos! I like to warm my tacos on a pan. Place the shredded lettuce first, next the salsa, then the hot fish and then that zesty lime dressing.
- Garnish with some more coriander leaves and enjoy immediately.
