Crumbed fish tacos
( SERVES 4 )
This American no-frills style taco is a good one for kids of all ages. It allows you to make a little fish go a long way and you can add as many ingredients to it as you want; ie spring onion, fresh coriander, a spicy mayonnaise, corn, refried beans, etc. The kids in my family like to make theirs with both a hard taco and a soft tortilla — the hard providing the crunch, the soft keeping it all wrapped together. These come from my easy food for flatters file.
