Fish Taco Recipe

This fish taco recipe is part of a Mexican Feast. It's good as part of a larger buffet type meal or you could use the recipe for your family - 12 tortillas and 6 pieces of fish with the salads would be a really great meal to do - makes it feel like you're going out, but you've saved the money...

The salad is a very versatile one, more of a salsa - I love my salad chopped up into dice and dressed, either with lime or lemon juice or a french dressing. I always find I'm fed up with eating salad before I feel full unless I do it this way - my family enjoy it too - keep dipping into the bowl until it's empty, which they wouldn't do if it was a boring sliced up salad.

Buy some guacamole and tortilla chips if you like - serve with lime wedges for a real Mexican feel. Add some grated cheese to sprinkle over and you've got an amazing meal.  

Mexican Taco Recipe
1 can sweetcorn
1 diced red onion
1 diced green pepper
1 diced red pepper
1 lime - juice and zest
4 tbspns sour cream
cayenne pepper to taste
black pepper to taste
salt to taste
6 fillets of tilapia - or any fish you prefer
oil for brushing fish
12 tortillas

Combine the sweetcorn, onion, peppers and lime in a bowl.

Pre-heat your grill and brush the fish with oil - then season with cayenne, pepper and salt.

Grill for a few minutes either side - on turning, brush with oil and season again.

Split the 6 tilapia fillets into four pieces so that each tortilla gets 2 strips.

Warm the tortillas and let each person make their own taco - combining salad, fish and cream.

Cook's Notes

I love avocado and eat at least four a week. It's great smashed onto toast as a breakfast. I crush some dried chillies over and a sprinkle of lime if I have it. 

When you're serving tacos or a chilli, add a sliced avocado as a side to get more of the healthy fats they contain.
