  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil (11g)
  • 1/4 iceberg lettuce, shredded (100g)
  • 4 fish fillets (approx. 560g) (cod or haddock – thick fillets work best), skinned and cut into chunks
  • 1 large cucumber (400g), cut into thin strips
  • 2 medium avocados, smashed (290g)


  1. Coat the fish with the seasoning from the meal kit.
  2. Heat the tacos according to the pack instructions.
  3. Heat a little oil in a large pan and fry the fish for about 3 minutes each side. Place in a warmed bowl.
  4. Load taco shells with lettuce, cucumber and fish chunks.
  5. Top with salsa, from the meal kit, and smashed avocado.

Expert Tips

  • Add a handful of chopped coriander leaves and a splash of lime juice to the avocado.
  • Try guacamole instead of smashed avocado.
  • Shredded red cabbage instead of mixed leaves would provide extra crunch and colour.
