Our favorite fish taco. Having a last minute dinner party? No problem- dinner will be served in less than 30 minutes.


Step 1
Combine chili powder, cumin, salt, black pepper together in a small bowl, coat the Barramundi strips in the spices
Step 2
Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Sear veggies using half the oil in a heavy skillet for about 4 minutes (softened but not wilted). Remove from pan and keep warm.
Step 3
Add remainder of oil to pan and place fish strips down. Cook about 2 minutes.
Step 4
Flip the fish once with a spatula, trying not to break it too much. Cook one additional minute.
Step 5
Add veggies to the fish, gently mix and remove from heat.
Step 6
In a clean pan over low heat put a few drops of oil, add a tortilla and gently move around with fingers, flip and repeat, until warmed and softened, about 1 minute. Stack warmed tortillas on a plate and cover with clean dish towel to keep warm. Serve at once.
