Learn how to make a DIY Cajun seasoning from 4 spices! You’ll cook the fish over a very high heat, so the spiced crust becomes charred and almost blackened. Serve with a fresh, sweet and tangy pineapple salsa to balance all those earthy spices. (Gluten and dairy-free, but unsuitable for coeliacs).

Cooking Instructions

1  Cajun Basa With Pineapple Salsa

Rinse the brown rice, add it to a pot with plenty of cold water and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium and cook for 20-25 min or until tender with a slight bite

Once cooked, drain and return to the pot and cover until serving

 

2  Cajun Basa With Pineapple Salsa

Meanwhile, combine the ground cumin, ground coriander, smoked paprika, dried oregano and 1 tsp [2 tsp] black pepper in a bowl

Season with a large pinch of salt and mix to combine – this is your cajun spice seasoning

3  Cajun Basa With Pineapple Salsa

Cut each basa fillet in half lengthways and pat them dry with kitchen paper 

Scatter the cajun spice seasoning onto a plate and press the fillets into it to coat them evenly in the seasoning 

4  Cajun Basa With Pineapple Salsa

Strip the mint leaves from their stems and chop them finely

Reserve the juice from the pineapple tin, and dice half [all] of the pineapple

Dice the tomato[es]

Trim then slice the spring onions finely

Combine the diced pineapple, tomato, sliced spring onion and chopped mint leaves in a bowl – this is your salsa

5  Cajun Basa With Pineapple Salsa

Combine the reserved pineapple juice, chilli flakes (Can't handle the heat? Go easy!), rice vinegar, 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] olive oil and a large pinch of salt and pepper – this is your dressing 

6  Cajun Basa With Pineapple Salsa

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] vegetable oil over a high heat

Once hot, add the cajun basa fillets and cook for 2 min on each side

Do not be tempted to turn the fish early, leave it to form a crispy crust!

Season the drained rice with salt and pepper

Toss the dressing through your salsa

Season the fish with salt and pepper
