Friday fish day.

March 19, 2010

I was scouring the net today for a Friday night fish supper and came across this great recipe for ‘Mexican fish wraps’.

As a child we always had fish on a Friday and I remember waiting in anticipation outside Mays chippy in Cosham and the highlight of choosing a Panda pop (fizzy cherry flavour) it was in glass bottles which is pretty old school.

Check out Johnsons fish sales in Old Portsmouth for local and sustainable white fish thats cheaper and fresher than the supermarket. Some superb photos of the market can be found on the Quiet Corners flickr page

For the wraps you will need:

  • finely grated zest and juice of 1 lime.
  • 700g skinless white fish fillet, cut into strips
  • 2 egg whites , beaten with a fork
  • 100g coarse fresh breadcrumbs
  • 4 squirts oil spray
  • 200g pot tzatziki
  • 8 small, soft flour tortillas
  • small wedge iceberg lettuce or white cabbage, shredded
  1. Sprinkle the lime zest over the pieces of fish, then season. Dip the fish into the egg whites, then coat with breadcrumbs and place on a baking sheet. Spray the fish with 2 squirts oil, then grill for 2 mins. Flip them over, spray with more oil, then grill for a further 2 mins until the fish is cooked and the breadcrumbs are golden and crispy. alternatively shallow fry in olive or sunflower oil.
  2. Squeeze the lime juice into the tzatziki and stir. Warm the tortillas according to pack instructions. To assemble the wraps, place a handful of cabbage or lettuce onto the top two-thirds of a tortilla, then rest 3 fish fingers on top with a good dollop of the lime tzatziki. Bring the bottom third of the tortilla up and fold the sides over to envelop the filling.

Try with a nice cold glass of Desperado, which I rather like.

  1. […] It made its debut on the common last summer and it totally rocks. Even better as I mentioned in my Friday Fish post is that we live right next to the sea and have super fish markets on our door step. Not that sorry […]
