Istruzioni: Fish tacos – spiced hake, sweet and sour garnish and yogurt sauce

Mix oil, salt, pepper, cumin, paprika, oregano and chili powder. Add fresh or drained fish, stir well to coat and leave in the fridge for at least 1 hour.

Meanwhile, prepare yogurt sauce by stiring together yogurt, mayonese, salt, pepper and lemon juice.

To prepare the vegetables and pineapple dressing, wash and pat dry your vegetables. Cut tomatoes and bell pepper in half and using a teaspoon remove the inner seeds and filaments. Cut all your vegetables and pineapple into small cubes. Mix everything, add lime juice, a big pinch of salt and mix again.

Cook your fish together with the mixture of spices on a non-stick pan adding more olive oil if necessary until the fish is completely cooked but not too dry. Once cooked use two forks to shred your fish and then set it aside.

Heat up your flour tortillas or Italian piadina in a dry pan. For this amount of fish and seasoning I used 4 Italian piadelle that are about 20 cm wide.

Stuff them with some rocket salad and raw sweet and sour vegetable salad. Add cooked fish and garnish everything with prepared sauce and then serve immediately.
