Spicy Fish Tacos & Pineapple

Grilling – rather than frying – the fish keeps these tacos healthy. The sour cream–chilli marinade lends spicy flavour that’s perfectly balanced by the slightly sweet slaw.



250 gram jar of jalapenos

1/2 cup sour cream

3/4 cup chopped coriander

1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more for the grill

500 grams skinless firm-fleshed fish, such as tuna, halibut or salmon

4 cups thinly shaved green cabbage

1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced

1/2 cup small-diced pineapple

Juice of one lime

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1 avocado, pitted and sliced

8 (6″) flour or corn tortillas, toasted



Chop the jalapenos. In a bowl, combine half the jalapenos with sour cream, 1/2 cup coriander, and olive oil. Stir to combine. Season with salt. Reserve 1/4 cup of the mixture. In a dish, spread the remaining mixture over both sides of the fish. Let it sit for at least 30 minutes. In a bowl, combine cabbage, onion, other half jalapeños, pineapple, lime juice, remaining coriander, cumin, and oregano. Toss and season with salt. Heat a grill over medium heat. Brush it with oil. Place the fish on the grill and cook until nicely charred, turning once, 6 to 8 minutes total. Remove to a cutting board and coarsely chop. Lay out the tortillas and divide fish among them. Top with slaw and avocado. Spoon reserved sour cream mixture on top. Serves 4.
