400g of cod

50ml of olive oil


4 ripe tomatoes
1 red onion
1 lime
20g of coriander


1 avocado
1 lime

To serve:

1/4 red cabbage
Taco shells


To begin, slice the cod into chunks and combine with the lime juice, chilli and oil. Leave to marinate for 30 minutes

Finely slice the red cabbage and sprinkle with a little salt. Leave to soften for around 15 minutes

Meanwhile make the salsa, dice the tomatoes and the onion and chop the coriander. Mix together and season with salt and lime juice

Smash the avocado up with a fork and mix with lime juice and salt to taste

To cook the fish, heat a frying pan over a high heat with a splash of olive oil

Cook the cod until golden brown on both sides, for around 1–2 minutes

To toast the tacos, place one at a time into a dry, hot frying pan until toasted on each side

Fill the tacos up to the top with the cabbage, salsa, fish and guacamole. Enjoy with an ice cold cerveza!
