Fish Tacos with Avocado and Sriracha Mayo

28 Minutes | easy | Serves 4

This recipe is a lighter version of California fish tacos, using grilled fish instead of deep fried. There are lots of ways to vary the toppings – you could mix the avocado with sour cream and lime to make a ‘crema’ for example, or add a spicy tomato salsa. Corn tortillas are available in some shops or online, but flour ones are fine if you can’t find them.


  • 600g monkfish cheeks or other meaty white fish, cut into large sections
  • 1.5 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1.5 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 3 cloves garlic crushed or finely grated
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise (For the Sriracha mayo)
  • 3 tablespoons natural yoghurt (For the Sriracha mayo)
  • 2 teaspoons Sriracha or other hot sauce, to taste (For the Sriracha mayo)
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice (For the Sriracha mayo)
  • Pinch ground cumin (For the Sriracha mayo)
  • 12 corn or flour tortillas (To serve)
  • Lime wedges (To serve)
  • Shredded white cabbage (To serve)
  • 2 avocados, sliced (sprinkle with lime juice to stop them turning brown - To serve)
  • Finely diced red onion (To serve)



Monkfish cheeks

If using monkfish cheeks, remove the thin outer membrane around the flesh and discard (a fishmonger may have done this already). Combine the ground cumin and coriander, paprika, garlic, olive oil and salt. Rub all over the fish and set aside for 20 minutes.
