Ingredients List for people
  1. Slice the red onion 

  2. Pickle the red onion: Combine equal parts hot water and vinegar with a teaspoon of salt and sugar. Add the sliced red onion and vinegar mix to a sterilized jar. Put aside for at least 1 hour.* 

  3. Pre-heat the oven to 190C. Marinade fish in cumin, chili powder, garlic, honey and lime. 

  4. Put into the oven on parchment paper and a tray for 7 mins or until the fish flakes when you test it. You could also BBQ to get a nice crispy fish. 

  5. Chop avocado into wedges and tear coriander. 

  6. Quickly warm the tacos in the microwave/ oven or a pan.  

  7. Construct tacos - with fish, then avocado, pickled onion and coriander on top. 

  8. Squeeze a wedge of lime over the tacos & add hot sauce if desired.

Inspired by El Pastor in London. Serve with rice or salad. You could also add some other ingredients to your tacos. 


*Make pickled onion the day before for optimum taste.

Did you mean to say onion and not radish in instruction #2?

Are Tacos recomendet by oms? I ask because tacos contain in Germany usually plant oil like sunflower oil or Rapeseed oil. Also most backed good in Germany contain Mono- and diglycerides of fatty acids and made from wheat flour.?


If sunflower or rapeseed oils are named on an ingredient list, and feature in small amounts in shop bought foods then those foods may be consumed. If you are concerned, flatbreads are fairly simple to make at home
