Jamie loves to serve his fish tacos with all the extras - guacamole, sweet pineapple salsa, garlic sour cream and  a jalapeño slaw!


  • 1 x 400g tin of cannellini beans

  • 8 large quality flour tortillas

  • olive oil

  • 4 x 200g haddock fillets, skin on, scaled and pin-boned, from sustainable sources

  • 1 lemon

  • a few sprigs of fresh mint

  • White garlic sauce

  • 1 bulb of garlic

  • 150g sour cream

  • 1 lime

  • a few sprigs of fresh flat-leaf parsley

  • Pineapple salsa

  • 1 small fresh pineapple

  • 2 fresh chillies, mixed colours if possible

  • ½ a bunch of fresh mint

  • 1 small red onion

  • 2 limes

  • extra virgin olive oil

  • Guacamole

  • ½ a small red onion

  • 2 spring onions

  • 1-2 fresh red chillies

  • 3 ripe avocados

  • 2 ripe tomatoes

  • a few sprigs of fresh mint

  • 1 lime

  • Slaw

  • ½ a red cabbage

  • 1 fresh green jalapeño chilli

  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar


  • 1.

    Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/gas 4.

  • 2.

    Place the whole garlic bulb in the oven for 1 hour, or until softened.

  • 3.

    To make the pineapple salsa, trim and peel the pineapple, cutting out any brown scraggy bits. Slice into wedges, cutting out and discarding the tough core.

  • 4.

    Dry fry in a large frying pan over a medium heat for around 4 minutes, or until charred, turning occasionally. Finely chop, then place into a bowl with all the lovely juices.

  • 5.

    Finely chop the chillies, pick and finely chop the mint leaves, then peel and finely chop the onion. Squeeze in the lime juice and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Season to taste.

  • 6.

    For the guacamole, peel and roughly chop the red onion, trim and roughly chop the spring onions and roughly chop the chillies on a large chopping board. Destone the avocados and scoop the flesh onto the board, then halve and deseed the tomatoes.

  • 7.

    Start chopping and mixing all the ingredients together until finely chopped and combined.

  • 8.

    Pick over the mint leaves, squeeze over the lime juice and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil. Season to taste with sea salt and black pepper, giving it one final chop.

  • 9.

    To make the slaw, very finely slice the red cabbage on a mandolin (use the guard!). Finely slice the jalapeño chilli, then place in a bowl with the vinegar. Mix well.

  • 10.

    To make the white sauce, squeeze the roasted garlic cloves out of their skins, then mash and fold it through the sour cream (use natural yoghurt if you want to be a little healthier). Add the lime juice and a splash of extra virgin olive oil, then season to taste. Pick, finely chop and stir through the parsley leaves.

  • 11.

    To make the crispy beans, drain and add the cannellini beans to a medium frying pan over a medium-high heat. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes, or until they start to pop and blister. Place in a bowl and keep warm.

  • 12.

    Wrap and warm your tortillas in the cooling oven.

  • 13.

    Wipe the pan out and return to a medium heat with a splash of olive oil. Season the haddock fillets and finely grate over the lemon zest, then place skin-side down in the pan for 4 minutes, pressing down lightly with a fish slice. Turn them over and cook for a further 3 minutes, or until slightly golden and just cooked.

  • 14.

    Place your warm tortillas on a plate and top with a spoonful of guacamole and slaw. Flake over the fish in chunky pieces, then top with the pineapple salsa, a dollop of garlicky sour cream and a spoonful of crispy beans.

  • 15.

    Pick, finely slice and scatter over the mint leaves, then serve with sliced red chilli and lime wedges, if you like.
