Fish Taco

Serve a Mexican feast within half an hour. Think about replacing lettuce with red cabbage – it’s crunchy, cheap and adds great colour.

Serves: 4


  • 2 medium tomatoes, seeds removed and diced
  • 1 medium green capsicum, finely chopped
  • 1 medium avocado, finely chopped
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 lime, squeezed
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 medium skinless white fish fillet
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • 1 ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 cups baby cos lettuce, finely shredded
  • 8 regular wholegrain tortillas
  • ¼ bunch coriander, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup reduced-fat Greek yoghurt


  1. Place tomatoes, capsicum, avocado, onion, lime juice and 1 tablespoon of oil in a bowl. Toss to combine. Set aside.
  2. Dust fish with paprika and cumin. In a non-stickpan, heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat and sear fish for 1-2 minutes on each side until cooked through.
  3. Add a layer of lettuce on the tortilla, top with fish and salsa. Scatter with coriander and serve with yoghurt.
