Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)

Before you begin...

Get all your ingredients and equipment ready, then skim through these steps

Wash your fruit and veg

Note: Equipment and pan sizes vary. Make sure you cook food thoroughly (even if it takes you a little longer than 10 mins)


Now, let's get started!

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a generous drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat

Once the pan is hot, add the basa fillets and pour over the soy sauce


Sprinkle the smoked paprika and ground allspice over the fish and cook the basa for 3-4 min on each side or until cooked through and blackened

Tip: Your fish is cooked once it turns opaque and flakes easily


While the fish is cooking, drain and roughly chop the pineapple

Trim, then slice the spring onion[s] finely

Shred the red gem lettuce

Chop the coriander roughly (including the stalks)


Add the chopped pineapple, spring onion and coriander to a bowl and gently mix it all together – this is your speedy pineapple salsa


Once the fish is cooked, break it apart into bite-sized pieces with a wooden spoon and remove from the heat – these are your blackened basa chunks

Add the tortillas to a plate

Put the plate in the microwave and cook for 1-2 min, or until warmed through


While the tortillas are in the microwave, combine the chipotle paste (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) with the mayonnaise, a drizzle of olive oil and 1 tsp [2 tsp] cold water – this is your chipotle mayo
