These little beauties are what happen when you combine happy accident Quinoa Tortillas and Mango Salsa and a few other fresh bits and pieces for an inspired summer-y meal.
I’ve previously shared the extent we went to for fish tacos in San Diego… these are better, if I do say so myself. Added bonus – no need to drive anywhere, you can have them in your very own home.
300g [2/3 lbs] white fish fillets – no bones or skin.
1/4 c cornmeal/polenta
sea salt, cracked black pepper
olive oil spray
1 c finely sliced red cabbage
1/2 bunch coriander [cilantro] sprigs and leaves
1 quantity Mango Salsa
1 batch [8 pieces] Quinoa Tortillas
Yogurt Sauce: 1/4 – 1/2 c natural or greek yogurt mixed with a pinch of salt and a bit of water until thin enough to drizzle. [optional]
Rinse and pat fish dry. Cut into chunks/fingers and season lightly with salt and pepper. Toss fish pieces in cornmeal or liberally sprinkle over both sides.
Coat fish pieces with oil spray on one side. Cook spray-side down in a non-stick pan on medium-high heat until golden. Spray with oil, flip over and cook for another minute until done. Remove pan from heat and squeeze a bit of fresh lime juice over fish pieces.
To assemble tacos fill each Quinoa Tortilla with: Red cabbage and coriander sprigs, a few fish pieces and some Mango Salsa. Drizzle over Yogurt Sauce [if using]. Serve with lime wedges.
Makes 8 tacos – serves 2-3 people

Yum! I love fish tacos…had the best ones from Tacombi in NYC.
Oh Piggy – there you go again adding more restaurants to my list! Looks like Tacombi is only half a block away from our fav Cuban place – can’t believe I’ve never even seen it!
Fish tacos are my love! I really like the sound of these quinoa tortillas too – I’ve toyed with the idea of making my own for a while now, but these ones have me sold. Fantastic!
Oh good! Let me know how they come out. I’m slightly obsessed with them!
Looks delicious. How about making them for good old mom some day?

We made your quinoa tortillas when you first posted them and they were so good, nate and I kept eating them as soon as they came off the stove, so we stood there devouring each one, I love fish tacos, we are making these, this weekend!
