Fish ‘Tacos’ with Easy Coriander Hot Sauce

Fish ‘Tacos’ with Easy Coriander Hot Sauce

I’m calling these ‘tacos’ because I’ve used lettuce leaves instead of tortillas. But don’t let that put you off.

They’re super delicious and with the fresh zesty hot sauce your taste buds will be happy!

If you’re using the lettuce leaves it’s a pretty light meal. So see the more substantial options below if you’re feeling hungry.

  • 2 fish fillets each sliced into 3 long fingers

  1. For the sauce, chop coriander (cilantro) leaves and stems coarsely. Place in a tall jug or wide mouthed jar large enough to fit your stick blender. Add chilli, 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil and lime juice. Blitz using your stick blender until you have a pureed vibrant green sauce. If you don’t have a stick blender, use a food processor, regular blender of chop everything by hand.
