Chickpea Flour Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa


Chickpea Flour Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa

I love a fish taco. Although this could also be a tortilla, but let’s call it a taco for today. This recipe reminds me of my years in Sydney. Just like the city, this dish is light, tasty and effortlessly healthy. I think I’ve been cooking Sydney style recently as I prepare for my month long Christmas adventure down under… I am super excited. The fresh creamy avocado sits so well with this chilli salsa. You can turn down the heat by reducing the amount of chilli and throwing the chilli seeds away (this is where most of the heat lives). The chickpea taco/tortilla is similar to the chickpea pizza base, it’s a versatile little number. This time we have spiced it up with my favourite spice… turmeric-which gives it that gorgeous yellow colour and provides your body with anti-inflammatory benefits as well as being an antioxidant. If there is one healing spice to get into your life it’s turmeric.

Serves 2 Ready in 35 minutes Good For


  1. Zest one lime onto the fish, season with salt and pepper and leave to sit.
  2. Now, mix your chickpea flour with the water, turmeric and a pinch of salt and let this sit for 30 minutes.
  3. To make the mango salsa, cut up the mango into inch long chunks, finely slice up the chilli (only using a pinch for less spicy and the whole thing for a real kick) and place in a bowl with the olive oil, juice of 1 lime and coriander.
  4. Chop up the avocado and tomato into inch wide pieces and dress with the juice of 1 lime and a pinch of salt and leave to the side.
  5. Heat up a small pan in a medium heat with a tsp of coconut oil and pour in some of the chickpea mix until it cover the edges of the pan, cook for 2 minutes on one side then flip and cook for another minute the other side. (You are aiming to have it cooked through and slightly charred.)
  6. Repeat this with the rest of the mix.
  7. Heat another pan with 1/2 tbsp of coconut oil to a medium to high heat. Fry the fish 2 minutes each side, until just cooked through.
