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!
- 3 tbsp Self-Raising Flour
- Soda Water
- 2 Cod Fillets
- 2 Corn Tortillas
- Red Cabbage & Green Apple Slaw with Tarragon Dressing
- Smoked Pineapple & Habanero Hot Sauce
- Toasted Coconut Sour Cream
- Fresh Coriander
- 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.
- 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.
- While the cod is cooking, warm up the corn tortillas.
- 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).
- 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.
