Instructions

  1. Process parsley, coriander, oil, vinegar, garlic, chilli, cumin and 1 tablespoon water in a small food processor until well combined. Season chimichurri with salt and pepper. Place half the mixture in the WW Herbstick and freeze for up to 1 month (see tip).
  2. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook remaining chimichurri for 1 minute. Add fish and cook, basting fish, for 2 minutes each side or until cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, combine yoghurt, juice and mustard in a large bowl. Add slaw and capsicum and toss to coat.
  4. Top tortillas with fish and slaw to serve.

Notes

TIPS: To make extra chimichurri to use later, simply double the quantity of ingredients and use half in the recipe and freeze the remaining half in the WW Herbstick. If using frozen chimichurri, remove and cut into 5 slices. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over low heat. Cook chimichurri for 2-3 minutes or until thawed and heated through before increasing heat to medium and adding fish. You can use any firm white fish fillets for this recipe such as ling, snapper or flathead. The WW Herbstick is available for purchase at the WW Online Shop (ww.com/au/shop).
