  • 1. To make the coleslaw, in a large bowl, combine the red cabbage, carrot and spinach leaves.

  • 2. Whisk the oil, vinegar, sugar together and add to the coleslaw mixture. Season to taste.

  • 3. For the fish, a medium bowl, combine the flour and lemon pepper. Dust each piece of fish with the seasoned flour. Set aside.

  • 4. Heat a teaspoon of the butter with a few tablespoons of the oil in a pan on medium. Fry 4-6 pieces of fish at a time until golden on both sides. Drain on paper towels when cooked.

  • 5. Repeat with remaining butter, oil and fish.

  • 6. Heat the tortillas in the microwave or oven and serve with the golden fish fillets, a dollop of tartare sauce and the crunchy coleslaw.

  • Tip:

  • To prevent fish cooking unevenly, let it come to room temperature for 15 mins before cooking.
