Midweek pick-me-up: Crispy fish tacos

Midweek pick-me-up: Crispy fish tacos

Everybody loves crispy fish and the secret is in the batter. This recipe uses rice flour, which forms the lightest tempura-style batter while also being naturally gluten-free. Any type of meaty white fish would work well. Increase the amount of paprika to spice things up a little.

Serves 4, makes 8 tacos

Ingredients
2 eggs
6 tbsp rice flour or plain white flour
4 tsp paprika
½ tsp sea salt and freshly ground pepper
2 cod fillets, de-skinned and boned
½ red cabbage, thinly sliced
2 medium carrots, coarsely grated
juice of ½ lemon
3 tsp honey
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
4 tbsp cider vinegar
4 tbsp coconut oil
8 taco shells
4 tbsp crème fraîche

Method
Whisk the eggs lightly in one bowl.

In another bowl, mix together the flour, paprika, salt and pepper.

Slice the cod fillets into goujons.

To batter the cod: simply dip one goujon at a time into the egg mix, then roll in the flour mix and leave to rest on a plate. Repeat with the remaining fish and place in the fridge until ready to cook.

For the slaw: mix the sliced red cabbage and grated carrots together. Add the lemon juice, honey, olive oil and vinegar and mix thoroughly to coat the slaw.

Melt the coconut oil in a non-stick pan over a medium heat. Add the fish goujons and cook for 5-8 minutes until golden on all sides.

Transfer the fish from the pan with a slotted spoon or spatula to a plate lined with kitchen paper to drain any excess oil.

Cook the taco shells as per packet instructions.

Stuff the tacos with the red cabbage slaw, place the cod goujons on top and a drizzle of crème fraîche.
