    • 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)

    Method

    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.

    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.

    Absolutely beautiful dish, very fresh and vibrant, nice and light. So easy to make in no time at all. Lovely heat (I used 3 jalapenos) and put in 3 tsp of fajita seasoning into the dressing.
