Today, there was lots of reduced fish in the supermarket, and also a number of very small cabbages, so I put two and two together and made fish tacos! I used to make them with guacamole and salsa, but a visit to the US convinced me to switch to experiments with coleslaw. Here is my latest version:
1 small red cabbage
2 shallots (I used the small round ones, not the long ones)
juice of 1-2 limes
good quality oil
fresh coriander, chopped
chopped red chillies
Slice cabbage and onions in the food processor, or pass them through a sharp grater. Add remaining ingredients.
Fish tacos can be made with any fish that doesn’t fall apart so easily. Today, I used sword fish, because it was reduced to £1.50 a piece. I marinated the pieces in a mixture of oil, lime, paprika, smoked paprika, salt and garlic, and fried them in a mixture of the same, with some more paprika dusted on them. They were so good, the neighbours’ cat climbed onto the roof next door to jump through my kitchen window!
