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

  1. Step 1 Combine chili powder, cumin, salt, black pepper together in a small bowl, coat the Barramundi strips in the spices
  2. 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.
  3. Step 3 Add remainder of oil to pan and place fish strips down. Cook about 2 minutes.
  4. Step 4 Flip the fish once with a spatula, trying not to break it too much. Cook one additional minute.
  5. Step 5 Add veggies to the fish, gently mix and remove from heat.
  6. 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.
  7. Plate your dinner like a pro Allow diners to spoon fish into tacos and add cheese, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, etc., as desired. Eat with hands.
