Method
  • Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the fish, sprinkle with the chilli powder, and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until the fish starts to whiten around the outside and is easily flaked with a fork. Take off the heat and let cool slightly, then slice the fish into strips or bite-sized pieces. In a large bowl, stir together the cabbage, coriander and lime juice.
  • To serve, divide the fish among the warmed corn tortillas, add a large spoonful of herby slaw to each taco, and top with chopped tomato.
