Recipe for Fish tacos with seared cod, mango, & red cabbage slaw.


Seared cod ingredients:
– 500 g cod, 2 big fillets (skinless, boneless)
– 1 tsp paprika
– 1 tsp cumin

Slaw ingredients:
– ½ small red cabbage, shredded
– 1 cup corn, drained from can
– 1 tbsp white vinegar

Additional ingredients:
– mango slices
– low-fat yogurt

– Multigrain tortilla wraps; I cut out 3 small circles from a large tortilla (and ate the trimmings).


1. Make slaw: Mix shredded cabbage, corn, vinegar, lemon juice and a dash of salt together very well. Place in fridge until ready to use.
2. Make seared cod: Add all the spices and lime juice on top of fish and rub well.

6. Build your tacos: Take tortilla wrap, add slaw, add pieces of seared cod, add mango slices, drizzle with yogurt and spoon over some guacamole!
