Method

  1. In a shallow dish, mix the fish with the lime zest and juice, honey and olive oil. Cover and leave to marinate for 30 mins in the fridge. In a small bowl, mix together the spices and sugar with a little salt. Remove the fish, and skewer it onto wooden or metal skewers. If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 10 mins first. Dust with the spices and seasoning. Chill until ready to cook.

  2. Next, make the salsa. Put the red onion in a bowl, cover with the lime juice and let sit for 5 mins. Add the remaining salsa ingredients and season. In another bowl, mix together the ingredients for the chilli cream and season.

  3. Heat the barbecue or griddle. Cook the fish for 2-3 mins each side on direct heat until grill marks appear and it feels firm. Serve the fish with warm corn tortillas, cabbage, radishes, the chilli cream, mango salsa, extra chipotle sauce, Tabasco or other hot sauce and lime wedges for squeezing over.

Best Fish Tacos Ever. The mango salsa is lovely. You can prepare in advance, then throw it all together for a really quick, delicious meal. I don't know why this has so few reviews. It's my daughters favourite meal.

A tip - if doing this in a griddle pan make sure your skewers fit inside!! So, I ended up griddling the individual pieces of cod (no swordfish to be had in my town apparently) but this worked well and the combination of salsa, fish and chilli cream was lovely. I like spicy food but thought the chilli cream would be very hot using the whole amount of chipotle so I used about 1/2 a tbsp which was fine for us, left a nice burny sensation.. Overall, we enjoyed this, I'd definitely do it again, and soon.
