    •    Yield: Serves 2


    •    1 carrot
    •    4 corn tortilla
    •    1 tbsp lemon juice
    •    1/4 cup sour cream
    •    1 tbsp rapesseed oil
    •    1/4 cup mayonnaise
    •    4 tsps taco seasoning
    •    2 tbsps cilantro (coriander herb)
    •    1 bag of barramundi skinless fillets
    •    1/2 head red cabbage, thinly sliced
    •    1/2 head green cabbage, thinly sliced


  1. For sauce, mix mayonnaise, sour cream, cilantro, and 2 teaspoons taco seasoning.
  2. Toss barramundi with lemon juice and remaining taco seasoning.
  3. In a non-stick pan, heat oil over medium-high heat; saute barramundi just until it begins to flake easily with a fork (around 4-6 minutes). Fish may break apart as it cooks.
  4. Spoon fish into warmed corn tortillas, serve with sauce and remaining ingredients as desired. Feel free to add additional taco fixings like fajita veggies and diced tomato.
  5. For the slaw, grate carrot into small slices with a box grater. Slice red and green cabbage thinly and combine with carrot.
