Fish Tacos with Tangerine Flavour Pearls


Tangerine Flavour Pearls add a little glamour and fresh flavour burst to these delicious fish tacos…such a great way to feed a crowd too!


We’ve gone the easy option and bought our taco spice but by all means go mad and create your own..add lots of heat or none at all! Tangerine Flavour Pearls give your tacos an added burst of style, Yuzu or Lemon & Black Pepper would be delicious too.

This recipe is an easy one to adapt too…don’t like fish – just use chicken tenderloins…Don’t eat meat or fish – simply batter some sweet potato or pumpkin slices…Don’t do gluten – use chickpea flour in the batter and buy gluten free tortillas…

This makes 6 generous size tacos

  • 500g Rockling or other white fish
  • Prawns – cooked, de-veined and peeled
  • Tomato x 2 – sliced
  • Red cabbage – about 1 cup – shredded
  • Avocado x 1 – sliced
  • Tangerine Flavour Pearls – 1 x 50g jar
  • Lime x 2
  • Coriander x 1 bunch
  • Tortillas x 6
  • Salt & Pepper


  • 200g SR flour
  • 1/4 tsp bi carb soda
  • Water x 100ml
  • Veg oil x 100ml
  • Taco spice x 5g or to taste
  • Salt & Pepper

Taco Mayo

  • 50g x Mayonnaise
  • 5g Taco spice or to taste (you can even buy ready made Mexican mayo if it’s all too hard!)

Toast your tortillas on a hot dry pan then set aside whilst you get the rest of the ingredients sorted.

Combine all ingredients for your batter with a whisk until smooth and set aside.

Slice your fish into strips, sprinkle with a little of the taco spice for extra flavour.

Mix your mayonnaise and taco spice.  Slice and dice the rest of your ingredients so you will be ready to assemble as soon as the fish is cooked. *(everything up to this point can be prepared and stored in the fridge ready if you are expecting guests…then all you need to do is cook the fish and assemble when it’s time to eat)

Preheat your deep fryer (if you have one!) to 175C or heat oil in a pot ready for the fish.

Have your serving platter handy as well as a tray or bowl with some paper towel to drain the fish.

Drop the fish into the batter then carefully into the oil, cooking until crisp and fully cooked. Drain on the paper towel, season liberally with salt & pepper too.

Now for the fun bit

Lay your tortillas flat on the bench and build your tacos there before placing them onto your serving platter. Layer the fish, mayonnaise and vegetables onto each tortilla. Transfer then to the serving platter and top with Tangerine Flavour Pearls, lime wedges and some fresh coriander.

Best enjoyed with good friends and family.

Until next time
