Salsa

Mix avocado, tomato, chilli, pineapple, coriander and onion in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper and a good squeeze of lime juice, then set aside.

Fish

  1. Slice fillets into 12 evenly sized small pieces.
  2. Place flour, eggs and crumbs in three separate shallow dishes. Mix cayenne pepper through flour, and the chilli flakes into the crumbs. Using one piece of fish at a time, roll it in the flour, then the egg, then the bread crumbs, pressing on to coat. Repeat until all the fish is crumbed.
  3. Heat 2 inches of oil in a pan or skillet to 180°C. See tip below.
  4. Shallow fry the fish pieces in batches, for 3-4 mins, turning once. Place cooked fish on kitchen towels to soak up excess oil, then put in a warm oven while you cook the remainder.

Tacos

  1. Mix sour cream and chilli sauce and set aside.
  2. To build a taco, hold a tortilla in your hand. Place some shredded lettuce in the bottom, then a good spoonful of salsa and a piece of fish. 
  3. Top with the chilli sour cream and garnish with fresh coriander and a squeeze of lime juice.

Marty’s tip: If you don’t have a thermometer, drop some breadcrumbs into the hot oil. If they pop to the surface and start to turn golden your oil is hot enough.
