Prep time: 10
Cooking time: less than 5 mins
1 1/2 lb / 750g red snapper or other firm white-fleshed fish fillets
1/2 teaspoon of salt
freshly ground pepper to taste
3/4 cup / 4 oz / 125g all-purpose flour (plain)
1/4 cup / 2 oz / 60 ml corn or safflower oil
2 cups / 16 fl oz / 500 ml Fresh Mexican Salsa (see recipe)
10 Corn tortillas, homemade or purchased, warmed
1 cup / 3 oz / 90 g chopped cabbage, thinly sliced
2 limes quartered
- Season both sides of the fish fillet with salt and pepper. Add flour on to a plate and place the fish fillets making sure to evenly coat both sides. Shake the excess flour off.
- Add the oil on to a frying pan. Set the burner to medium-high heat waiting until the oil is hot. Once the oil is hot, place the fish fillets in the frying pan flipping once until fish is golden on both sides.
- Transfer the fish fillets on absorbent paper (paper towel) to drain briefly. While the fish is still hot shred with a fork and mix in with some fresh Mexican salsa.
- Add the mixture in a warm corn tortilla and add some cabbage. Sprinkle some lime. Guacamole is recommended for this recipe. Enjoy!
