  • 1/4 c. mayonnaise
  • 1/4 c sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons Sriracha
  • Juice of 1/2 lime


  • 3/4 c. all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons chilli powder
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 c. whole milk
  • 1 1/2 lb. cod or other firm white fish, cut into strips about 3″ x 1 1/2″

Method of cooking:

In a large bowl, whisk together the jalapeño, garlic, mayonnaise, sour cream, lime zest and juice, salt and sugar.

Add the cabbage and coriander to the bowl and toss to coat. Set aside to allow the flavours to meld.

In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, Sriracha and lime juice. Set aside.

In a shallow dish, combine flour, chilli powder, salt, black pepper and garlic powder.

Pour the milk into another shallow dish.

Dip the fish strips in the milk, then roll in the flour mixture to coat.

Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Cook the fish in batches until golden brown and cooked through, about 3 minutes per side.

To assemble the bowls, divide the romaine between the bowls and top with the spicy slaw, fried fish, avocado, mango and a drizzle of spicy crema.

Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve with lime wedges.
