Fish Tacos with Tomatillo Salsa

Fish Tacos with Tomatillo Salsa

  • Preparation 25 min

You can’t stop, won’t stop for the contrast of soft white fish (go for sole, tilapia or haddock) against the fresh crunch of a simple slaw. Green onions that are pan-fried to an almost blackened state take the flavour to mic-drop taco territory.

Note from Ricardo

Tomatillos are small green fruit wrapped in a papery shell, like ground cherries. They are found canned, fresh or ready-made into a salsa in select grocery stores or Latin American markets.
