  • 3 ripe avocados
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1/2 bunch coriander (cilantro)
  • 3 limes
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • chili serrano
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Directions: Slice three ripe avocados in half, remove the pit and skins and scoop them into a bowl. Then use a fork to gently mash them to your desired level of chunky or smooth. Add the red onions, cilantro, jalapeno pepper, garlic, lime juice and salt and stir everything together.

Fish Tacos

  • 150 ml striped sea bass
  • 2 sundried tomatoes
  • 25 ml shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
  • 30 ml refried beans
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • tortillas

Directions: For the tacos, warm up a pan and add olive oil. Place the fish and dried tomato in the pan and let it cook for 3 min; add shallot, garlic, salt and pepper and cook everything on low heat for another 5 min. Reserve in a warm place.

Plate the tortilla, add a little spoon of refried beans on one side of the tortilla, trying not to cover the whole tortilla surface. Place one spoon of the fish in the middle and decorate it as you wish. Free your mind and use what you have – try cilantro leaves, chili pepper slices or sprouts, green onion rings and more!

Tip: Lean and flakey white fish fillets are traditionally used for fish tacos, including halibut, tilapia, mahi mahi, snapper, cod, bass and cat fish.
