Pescado para la cena!

Finally another recipe! Today a good friend of mine got given some beautiful fresh Hapuka from the Coromandel. We have had a lot of fish recently (I love summer foods!) so I tried to think of an interesting and different way of preparing our fish for tonight's feast! I scoured through a few of my favourite recipe books and came across a few traditional recipes for Fish Taco's from Mexico. Mexican is an all time favourite of mine so I decided to roll with this concept and see what happened! I was craving nachos, so decided to use these amazing Organic Blue Tortilla chips from Garden of Eatin instead of Tacos.

This recipe was so simple and easy, the fish is the only part that needs cooking, and I think together my friend and I whipped it up in only 15 minutes! I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. The combination of several of my favourite foods (nachos, fresh fish, avocado aaand black beans!) was insanely rewarding on my taste buds.

The Fish...
Use any white fleshy fish (Snapper, Hapuka, Monk, Bluenose) and dice into small chunks
Combine 1/2 Cup Almond Flour with a sprinkle of Cumin and Dash of Paprika
Coat the fish in the flour.
Heat 2Tablespoons Oil (preferably Coconut or Grapeseed) and wait until sizzling before adding the fish.
Stirfry until just cooked and crispy on the outside. Set aside for now.

The Salsa...
Dice the following and toss together in bowl -
1 Tomato
1/2 Cup Spring Onion
2 Capsicum (I used 1 Red and 1 Orange for bright colour)
1-2 Avocado
1/2 Red Onion
Handful Coriander
Add 1 can of drained Black Beans, the juice of 1 lime and gently mix

The Guacomole...
2 well ripened avocados
1 garlic clove, minced
1 diced tomato
1/2 diced red onion
Juice from 1 Lime
Finely chopped Coriander to taste
Top your corn chips with Fresh Salsa and Fried Fish, and finish with a big dollop of Guacomole!
Buena apettite!
