Fish-tacosSharing and making up food is a great way to get the family sitting around the table and enjoying a meal together.

Try these fish tacos – children will have fun putting them together and you can be reassured they are having a healthy meal. Eating more fish is one of the key healthy eating recommendations and whether you choose cod or halibut, both are low in fat, rich in protein, and a great source of minerals such as zinc, selenium and magnesium, needed to keep you and your family healthy.

Ingredients (Serves 4)

  • Handful of coriander leaves, chopped
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and chopped
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 750g cod or halibut, cut into large goujons
  • 8 tortillas
  • 2 Gem lettuces, shredded
  • Half a cucumber, diced
  • 4 spring onions, sliced
  • 2 limes, cut into wedges

Method

Pre-heat the oven to 200°C/Gas Mark 6.

Place the coriander, paprika, cumin, lime zest and olive oil into a blender and blend to form a paste.

Place the fish goujons in a bowl, add the paste, coat thoroughly and allow to marinate for at least 15 minutes.

Wrap the tortillas in foil and place in the oven for 5 minutes to warm them through.

Meanwhile, spray a little oil into a non-stick frying pan and cook the fish goujons for 1-2 minutes on all sides, keep them moving.

Place the fish on a large platter with the lime wedges and serve with the tortillas, lettuce, cucumber and spring onions. Add a dollop of low-fat mayonnaise or tartare sauce, if desired.
