Golden Fish Tacos


Farrah’s Taco Tortillas
Flaked fish like Kahawai, or Warehou
Dry Chipotle peppers ground
Ancho Chilli powder    
Red Chilli peppers (thinly sliced)

Grind chipotle peppers using a mortar and pestle. Whisk your ground Chipotle, Ancho chilli, olive oil and lime juice to create your marinade for your fish. Cut fish into strips and marinade for 2 – 4 hours. Pan fry fish until it is cooked and has developed a nice golden crust. 

Warm each tortilla on a hot plate or fry pan and fill with thinly sliced cabbage, add your cooked fish and top with a few slices of radish and fresh sliced red chilli.
Mix a little freshly squeezed lime juice with aioli to make a tasty refreshing sauce to top your tacos. 

When presenting soft tacos it may be worth getting your hands on some taco holders, these are a great way to serve your soft tacos standing up.

  • Use any large firm white fish that flakes, alternatively crumb your fish with panko or a crispy light beer batter.
  • Use lettuce instead of cabbage for a lighter feel and taste.
  • Remember the hot sauce and fresh limes for the full experience!
