Seared Cod Tacos with Wasabi Cream and Chilli, Lime and Sesame Salt

40 Minutes | easy | Serves 4

The cod for these tacos is cooked in the Outback fish cage, which makes turning the fish on the BBQ absolutely foolproof. Make sure to rub it with a little oil to stop it sticking to the cage while its cooking. We serve the cod in corn tacos, although it will also be lovely served in flour tortillas. There’s no need to season the fish before cooking as it’s served with a special seasoning salt flavoured with sesame, chilli and lime.


  • Approx 20 corn tortillas (5 per person)
  • 500g skinless cod fillets
  • 4 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon wasabi, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon chilli flakes
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ red cabbage, very thinly sliced (you can use a vegetable peeler to get very thin slices)
  • 1 handful coriander leaves, chopped
  • ½ white onion, very thinly sliced
  • Juice of ½ a lime




Combine all the salt ingredients together and set aside.
