  • For the fish

  • 1 fillet firm white fish

  • 1/2 tsp turmeric

  • 1/4 tsp cayenne

  • 1/4 tsp ground coriander

  • 2 tsp olive oil

  • sea salt and black pepper, to taste

  • For the avocado dressing

  • 1/2 ripe avocado

  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yoghurt

  • 2 tsp olive oil

  • 1 garlic clove

  • squeeze lime juice

  • To serve

  • 3-4 wholegrain or gluten-free soft tortillas

  • 1/4 purple cabbage, shredded

  • 1 corn cob

  • lime wedges, to serve

  • handful fresh coriander, roughly chopped


  • 1.

    To char your corn, wrap the cob in aluminium foil, then place directly on a gas stove using a low-medium flame. Cook it for 8 minutes, using tongs to turn them every two minutes so it is evenly charred.

  • 2.

    Remove from heat and then leave to cool before unwrapping and cutting the kernels from the cob with a sharp knife.

  • 3.

    Meanwhile, cut your fish fillet into cubes, approximately 2cm by 2cm.

  • 4.

    Transfer them to a bowl and coat with spices and seasoning.

  • 5.

    Heat the olive oil in a heavy-based fry pan over a medium-high heat. Add the fish, and cook for 3-4 minutes or until cooked through, turning regularly. Leave to one side to rest.

  • 6.

    Add all of your dressing ingredients to a blender and blitz until smooth.

  • 7.

    Arrange the fish, charred corn, and cabbage on the tortillas. Drizzle with the dressing and serve with fresh coriander and a lime wedge.
