Nutrition: Per serving (4 average portions)


  • 1 egg , beaten
  • 100g breadcrumbs , made from day-old bread
  • 3 tsp fajita seasoning (we used Santa Maria)
  • oil , for greasing
  • 400g haddock fillets, cut into chunky strips
  • 4 spring onions , finely sliced
  • 1 yellow pepper , sliced
  • 1 red pepper , sliced
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 ripe tomato , diced
  • 1 lime
  • 1 x pack flour tortillas
  • grated cheese and soured cream, to serve


  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6.

  • STEP 2

    Put the beaten egg into a shallow bowl. Tip the breadcrumbs onto a plate. Mix the fajita seasoning into the breadcrumbs.

  • STEP 3

    Brush a non-stick baking sheet with oil. Dip the fish strips into the egg, then coat them with the breadcrumbs. Transfer to the oven.

  • STEP 4

    Meanwhile, put the spring onions and peppers on a baking tray and turn them through a small amount of oil. When the fish has been in the oven for 5 mins, put the onions and peppers in. Bake for a further 10 mins until the fish fingers are golden.

  • STEP 5

    Mash the avocados with a fork and stir through the diced tomato, lime juice and some black pepper. Get the other accompaniments ready in bowls.

  • STEP 6

    Warm the tortillas for 15-30 secs in the microwave, or you can warm them through on a plate in the oven for a few mins.

  • STEP 7

    Place all the food in dishes on the table and let everyone dig in!
