Crispy fish tacos with Mango Salsa

These fish tacos are fast to make and are a great change from Mexican beef or chicken recipes.

We love the addition of the mango salsa, but if it’s out of season just add in some of your favourite salad ingredients and it will be just as delicious.

  • 1 lime juice only

  • To make the Mango Salsa; Mix together the prepared mango, chilli, spring onion and herbs. Stir through lime juice. Set aside.

  • Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan. Cook crumbed fish strips in batches over a medium-high heat, turning once, until golden and cooked. The cooking time will depend on the thickness of the fish.

  • Heat the tortillas according to packet directions.

  • Place the lettuce across the centre of a tortilla. Top with the crumbed fish. Squeeze over Heinz Seriously Good Original Mayonnaise. Finish with the Mango Salsa. Fold the tortilla to enclose the filling. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Serve immediately.
