Our ideal summer evening begins with Hayden Quinn's healthy fish tacos

Nothing beats a classic fish taco. Now you can make your own with this simple, healthy recipe.

Ensenada fish tacos with chilli and coriander

“For many years the beaches on the north coast of Cornwall were patrolled by Australian lifeguards, originally because they had the surf life-saving skills that were unfamiliar to the locals.

ADVERTISEMENT

For me, this meant

many summers of friendship with pleasant Australians, all of whom seemed to be sunny and optimistic. Well, you would be, wouldn’t you, with a summer in Cornwall and lots of locals finding you irresistible? One such lifeguard was Rudy, who used

to return year after year. Everyone was extremely fond of him – so much so that we filmed a little sequence about a trip he’d made to Ensenada on the Baja California coast, where they made fabulous fish tacos. We cooked some on the beach in Cornwall by the lifeguard hut, and Rudy took Chalky, my Jack Russell, out for a little surfing lesson.

ADVERTISEMENT

Sadly, when back in Australia five years later, Rudy died of cancer and I always thought that one day I’d get to Ensenada, find the tacos and maybe get the film company to show the early film and me standing on the beach with the taco in memory. That’s how it happened, and this is the recipe” - Rick Stein.

Tandoori salmon tacos with coconut and coriander crema

“These tacos are a juxtaposition of smoky umami flavours, crunchy vegetables and delicious coconut ‘crema’. The crema is based on a coconut chutney recipe, I don’t

like to make it too thin as I don’t want to lose flavour.

ADVERTISEMENT

There will be extra crema – freeze this for another time." - Anjum Anand

Move aside mince, there’s a new taco protein in town! Whether it be crumbed, fried or raw, fish always pairs well with classic Mexican flavours – especially when finished with a squeeze of lime.
