For the Baja sauce

For the fish

  • ½ lime , juiced
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 20g fajita seasoning
  • 2 cod loins (around 140g each), cut into chunks
  • 8 small corn tortilla , griddled, to serve
  • 8 spoonfuls each curtido and tomatillo salsa, to serve (refer to the method for our recipes)


  • STEP 1

    To make the sauce, put all of its ingredients in a food processor, blitz until smooth and season well. Add a splash of water if you need to, to make it a consistency that can be drizzled, then pour into a bowl or jug and chill until needed.

  • STEP 2

    To make the fish, whisk the lime juice, oil and fajita seasoning in a bowl, add the cod and toss well. Fry the cod in a non-stick frying pan over a high heat for 5 mins until beginning to flake, but not falling apart. Divide between the tortillas, each one drizzled with the sauce and topped with a spoonful of our curtido and our tomatillo salsa.
