Lazy fish tacos

When they find out how obsessed I am with all things food, some people assume I spend the vast majority of my time in my kitchen, cooking up a strom and making everything from scratch.

People who do know me know that’s not quite the case and I’m actually the laziest of cooks.

Lazy Fish Tacos

Yield: 2


  • 10 fish fingers
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 limes
  • 1 big can corn
  • 4 tortilla wraps
  • 1/2 red onion or spring onion, chopped
  • Pickled jalapeno to taste, roughly chopped
  • Fresh coriander
  • Mayo
  • Your favourite hot sauce
  • Olive oil
  • Chilli flakes
  • Salt, pepper


  1. Follow the instructions to cook your fish fingers (I find baking's the easiest/laziest way!). 5 min before the fish fingers are done, add the tortilla wraps into the oven.
  2. In the meantime, blend the avocado with 1 lime, some salt, pepper, chilli pepper and coriander leaves.
  3. Heat up 1 tbsp olive oil into a frying pan. Add the corn and cook until slightly roasted (about 5min). Transfer into a bowl, then add chopped red onion/spring onion and pickled jalapeno. Season with lime juice, salt, pepper and fresh coriander.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together the mayo and hot sauce.
  5. Bring everything onto the table and let people build their own tacos.
