El Gastrónomo Vagabundo – Fish Tacos

Our profile on the popular gourmet food truck, El Gastrónomo Vagabundo, with chef Adam Hynam-Smith and Tamara Jensen. Adam shows us how to make their famous Fish Tacos!

Fish Tacos



  1. Prepare the fish batter. Sift self-raising flour into small bowl. Gradually add soda water creating a batter with a texture of thickened (not whipped) cream. If the batter is too runny, add a bit more flour.
  2. Clean, dry and lightly flour the cod fillets. Place cod into batter and lightly cover. Then place cod fillets in fryer. They only need a minute or two.
  3. While the cod is cooking, warm up the corn tortillas.
  4. Check on the cod. When ready, it should be golden brown and crispy. Remove from fryer, and place in a bowl with paper towel (to absorb the excess oil).
  5. Place warmed tortillas on a plate and place the fish in. Add some red cabbage & green apple slaw with tarragon dressing. Top with some toasted coconut sour cream, and smoked pineapple & habanero hot sauce. Finally garnish with fresh coriander and lime.

Use a Bundt Pan to Get Corn Off the Cob

The folks over at Saveur have discovered a fast innovative way to de-corn a cob. It’s safe and requires only a cob of corn, a bundt pan, and a knife.

Place the corn cob in the center of the bundt pan and slice downward along the sides of the cob to remove the kernels, then scrape the back of the knife along the cob to release its juices.
