Perfect for entertaining, or treating yourself midweek, our deliciously fresh hoisin fish tacos are a total crowd-pleaser. We’ve used coley in this dish for its flaky texture and marinated it in a deliciously sweet and sticky hoisin sauce that works really well with the zesty mayo dressing and crunchy veg. After marinating, the coley only needs to cook in a glug of olive oil a few minutes per side in a frying pan. Let the fish rest a few minutes before sprinkling over the sesame seeds and using a fork to flake it into pieces. Serve everything up in the middle of your table and get everyone to build their own tacos.
Hoisin Sauce(ContainsGluten, Sesame, Soya)
Preheat your oven to 200°C. Chop the potato into 2cm wide wedges (no need to peel). Pop on a large lined baking tray, drizzle with oil and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Toss to coat then spread out and bake on the top shelf of your oven until golden and crispy, 25-30 mins. Turn halfway through cooking.
Meanwhile, pop the coley fillets onto a plate and pat dry with kitchen paper. Pour the hoisin sauce onto the fish. Use your hands to rub the sauce all over the fish. Keep to one side. IMPORTANT: Remember to wash your hands and equipment after handling raw fish.
Trim the cucumber then halve lengthways. Cut the halves widthways into four equal lengths, then thinly slice into matchsticks. Halve the pepper and discard the core and seeds. Slice into thin strips (the same size as your cucumber!). Trim the radish then thinly slice into rounds. Zest the lime and cut into wedges.
Pop the mayo into a small bowl. Add a pinch of lime zest and a squeeze of juice from one of the wedges. Season to taste with salt and pepper and stir well.
When the wedges have 10 mins left in the oven, heat a splash of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, carefully add the coley and all the marinade. Fry until the fish is golden and the sauce is sticky, 3-4 mins on each side. iIMPORTANT: The fish is cooked when the centre is opaque. While your fish is cooking, pop the tortillas onto another baking tray on the bottom shelf of your oven to heat through, 1-2 mins.
Once the fish is cooked through, remove the pan from the heat and allow to rest for 1 minute. Sprinkle over the sesame seeds then use a fork to flake the fish into bite-sized pieces. Pop all the different elements of your tacos onto plates and place onto the table. Let everyone get involved and build their own fish taco. Enjoy!
