Really quick and tasty. Dusted fish with a little extra flour as well as the spices for extra crispiness. Homemade guacamole beats shop-bought any day, though.

I love this - I serve it with a mexican-style rice salad of cooked rice, kidney beans, red peppers, spring onions, celery, cherry tomatoes, dried apricots, coriander and dressed with a mixture of tomato ketchup, red wine vinegar and a pinch of chilli flakes.
