  • 220g pack lemon sole goujons
  • 1 tsp chipotle paste or harissa
  • 6 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 4 soft corn tortillas



    In Spain, a tortilla is a kind of omelette, with ingredients added - frequently sliced cooked…

  • 175g white cabbage, finely shredded
  • good handful chopped coriander
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped or sliced
  • juice 1 small lime, plus wedges to serve (optional)



    The same shape, but smaller than…


  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Space the goujons apart on a baking sheet and bake for 12-15 mins, following pack instructions, until crispy. Meanwhile, mix the chipotle or harissa into the mayo, and warm the tortillas – they are best warmed over a gas flame.

  2. To make the salad, toss the cabbage, coriander and onion with the lime juice and some salt.

  3. Spread the tortillas with a little spicy mayo, then place the salad and fish down the centre. Top with a little more mayo, then fold and eat with your fingers. Serve with lime wedges, if you like.

Wow these were epic. They went down a storm in my house. I thought I’d treat us and go Waitrose for the lemon sole. Expensive but well worth the £4.50 trust me. The salad looks boring by itself but mixed with the mayo and fish it is lush. I am definitely making these again.

Lazy recipes, this one doesn't warrant being on a cooking website.

Yes it does it’s lush. Some of us cooks like a day off now and then. Lol

Made this tonight using M and S battered haddock fingers and it was really tasty. I used iceberg lettuce as it was what I had and did use a bit more chipotle as we like quite hot. Added some roasted peppers too which was nice but not really necessary.

So easy and delicious. I just used fish fingers and added avocado. Perfect fast food.

You can get the lemon sole goujons on Tescos online now. We make ours in toasted pitta pockets if we can't find the wraps which is just as nice.

I made a few adjustments to this recipe and my fish tacos were pretty nice! Struggled to find lemon sole goujons so just used some fresh breaded cod nuggets from aldi, instead of chipotle paste I used siracha hot sauce in the mayo, and I had salsa with mine too.

Yummy, easy recipe! We used a lot more Harisa to give the mayo sause an extra kick! The salad is fantastic! Really good, thanks!

Does anyone know how I can adjust these for kids with low tolerance of spice? I was thinking of using tartare sauce but it would be nice to have a Mexican twist.

Hi Che Guevaraa, You could replace the spicy mayo with sour cream, or flavour the mayo with a little lime zest. Cassie (Senior Food Editor, BBC Good Food)
