600g of white fish, I used Blue eye cod cut in small size chunks

30g organic butter

3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp ground cumin

1/2 tsp ground sweet paprika

salt and pepper to season


1/4 red cabbage, julienned

1/4 white cabbage, julienned

1 large carrot, julienned

1/8 pineapple

1/3 cup sour cream or greek yoghurt

1/3 cup free range mayonnaise

1 tsp of garlic powder

1/2 tsp of any spicy sauce, such as tabasco or sriracha. Leave it out if cooking for little kids

To serve:

12 gluten-free corn tortillas

1 avocado, sliced

Fresh coriander leaves

2 limes cut in wedges

Juice of one lime

Salt and pepper to season


  1.  Start by preparing the coleslaw. Slice all the ingredients and put them in a large salad bowl.*
  2. In a small jar, combine sour cream, mayonnaise, lime juice, garlic powder, and spicy sauce, if using. Season with salt and pepper and taste. You might want to add more lime juice, salt, or pepper.
  3. Add sauce to the vegetables and mix well until everything is well combined. Refrigerate.


4. Preheat the oven to 200'C (400'F)

5. Put fish on a baking tray. Melt butter and mix it with olive oil. Using a pastry brush, brush the fish with the oil-butter mixture.

7. Bake fish for about 8 minutes and turn the oven to the grill option for an additional two minutes. Watch the fish closely as it will brown very quickly. Make sure you don't burn it. If some fluid has accumulated around the fish, don't worry, this is totally normal.

8. Heat the corn tortillas according to the instruction. 

9. To assemble put a big tablespoon of coleslaw on the corn taco, following by a couple of avocado slices, 2-3 fish bites, and some fresh coriander leaves. Squeeze some more fresh lime juice on top and enjoy!
