Fresh and filling fish tacos come together with hearty black beans, homemade salsa and fresh fish in a style as close to what you would get off the Baja coast in Mexico.
120 grams / 3/4 cup plain flour
1/2 teaspoon ground smoked paprika
1 teaspoon sea or kosher salt
200 milliliters / 1 cup - 2 tablespoons soda water
600 grams / 1.3 pounds firm white fish, sliced into 4 inch pieces
200 grams / 7 ounces tomatoes, finely diced
1 shallot, peeled and finely diced
1 handful fresh cilantro, finely chopped
12 corn tortillas
57 grams / 1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lime juice
23 grams / 1/3 cup shredded cabbage
2 radishes, finely sliced
- Combine the flour, smoked paprika and salt into a small bowl.
- Add in the soda water and whisk until the batter is smooth.
- Place a heavy frying pan on medium heat with a plenty of neutral oil (sunflower tends to be best here) to cover the base of the pan.
- Dip a piece of fish into the batter and coat in the batter completely.
- Lay into the hot oil and repeat with a further 2-3 pieces of fish in your frying pan.
- Cook until golden, approximately 3 minutes each side.
- Place on a plate to drain the additional oil off.
- Place further pieces of fish in the batter and cook until all have been cooked.
- Meanwhile, combine the salsa ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
- In a small bowl combine the mayonnaise and lime juice until smooth. Set aside.
- To warm the tortillas, heat a small saucepan on low and place one tortilla until the edges rise slightly and they are lightly browned. Flip and heat the other side.
- Or place each individually into a microwave with a glass of water and heat until warm.
- Place on a plate and cover with a warm tea towel. Continue with the remaining tortillas.
- Place 1 or 2 pieces of fish in the center of a tortilla, top with a spoonful of salsa, a little shredded cabbage and spoon over a little of the lime mayo.
- Dig in!
