Method

  • 1 Prepare a BBQ with one side filled with hot coals. Making sure the grill is very clean and well oiled.
  • 2 Dry off the fish and rub with salt and oil, set aside.
  • 3 Mix together the red cabbage and vinegar and set aside for 30 mins.
  • 4 Make the guacamole by mashing up all the ingredients with a fork in a bowl and set aside.
  • 5 Make up the pico de gallo by mixing the ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
  • 6 Grill the fish on the BBQ for 5 minutes on each side until cooked through, being careful as you turn the fish that it doesn’t break apart.
  • 7 Once cooked set aside in a warm place for 5 minutes to rest.
  • 8 Flake the fish into a bowl discarding the bones and skin.
  • 9 Grill the tortillas over the high heat for 5 seconds per side and rest on a plate covered with a cloth to soften.
  • 10 After 5 minutes assemble the Tacos by placing some flaked fish onto a wrap with a spoonful of guacamole, pico de gallo and cabbage. Serve warm.
The guacamole and pico de gallo are also delicious without salt
