Fish:

  • 250g skinless firm white fish (such as cod)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

Yogurt Sauce:

  • 70g Danone Natural Yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

Coleslaw: 

  • 100g white cabbage finely shredded
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Handful of coriander roughly chopped

Pickled Onion:

  • 1 small red onion finely sliced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 5 whole peppercorns
  • Small handful of fresh oregano
  • Bay leaf (optional)
  • 6 x Corn Tortillas
  • To garnish – lime wedges, avocado, coriander 

Instructions

Preheat grill to 200c

In a small bowl add in all the ingredients for the pickled onion, make sure the onions are submerged in the liquid, and leave to one side.

In a bowl mix together the fish rub spices. Arrange the fish on a baking tray and sprinkle over the rub onto the fish fillets, coating all sides. Roast in the oven for 10 minutes (they could be ready in 8 so keep an eye on them)

Meanwhile make your coleslaw by adding all the ingredients in a small bowl and mixing. Taste the Lime and salt, add more if lime if you would like more zing!

Make the yogurt sauce by mixing in all the ingredients, checking your lime and salt to your taste.

When you take the fish out the oven, leave the oven on and pop in your tortillas to warm though for about 2 minutes (I like to put mine in tinfoil so they stay nice and soft)

Slice lime and avocado if using as garnish too.

To assemble:

Lay a warm tortilla on a plate, first place your yogurt mix, then load with fish, coleslaw and top with pickled onion, add one more dollop of the yogurt sauce and squeeze over the juice of a wedge of lime.
