  1. Preheat oven to 180°C or 160°C fan-forced. Combine tomato, onion, jalapeños, juice and coriander in a medium bowl and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Set salsa aside.
  2. Combine f lour and chilli powder on a plate and season with salt. Cut fish crossways into 1.5cm-wide strips. Toss fish in flour mixture to coat, shaking off any excess. Lightly spray a large non-stick frying pan with oil and heat over medium heat. Lightly spray fish pieces with oil. Cook fish, in batches, for 2–3 minutes each side or until cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, place taco shells on a baking tray and bake for 5 minutes or until warm and crisp.
  4. Fill taco shells with lettuce and carrot. Top with fish and salsa and serve with avocado and lime wedges.


TIP: You can use 500g lean chicken breast fillets cut into thin strips instead of fish.You can use any firm white fish for this recipe, such as barramundi, ling, blue-eye trevalla or flathead.3 Key Mexican staples:1. Jalapeño chillies are very hot, green chillies so adjust according to taste. Find them bottled in brine in the Mexican food aisle. 2. Mexican chilli powder is a mix of cumin, paprika, chilli, oregano, cayenne pepper and garlic. Find it in the spice aisle. 3. Fresh coriander is a pungent lemony herb that looks similar to flat-leaf parsley. Find it in the fresh produce section.
