Another contemporary twist on a traditional dish, these tacos are inspired by the Italian-Jewish custom of eating sweet and sour fish for Rosh Hashanah. Pesce All’Ebraica (lit. Jewish Fish) is normally made with fillets of white fish cooked in oil, honey or sugar and vinegar, and flavoured with raisins or sultanas and toasted pine nuts.
We have seasoned our fish with South American flavours of agave and lime, bringing sugar and vinegar into the dish with pickled onions, and throwing juicy sultanas and tart green apples through a crunchy red cabbage slaw. All this is stuffed into homemade corn tacos for the perfect mouthful. (N.B. You will require a tortilla press for the tacos. If you haven’t got the time, equipment or patience to make your own corn tortillas, you can use store-bought flour tortillas, or forego the wraps altogether and serve as a plate of fish and salad with chips!)
Earthy freshness from parsley, vibrancy from mint and refreshing aniseed notes from tarragon, all lifted with the zesty citrus burst of lemon, mean that this flavourful dressing (as the name suggests) works with everything. Almost. You may not want it in your tea, and it might taste a bit funny on chocolate mousse, but it can add vibrancy to meat, fish, vegetables, salads and even – if you’re feeling bold – fruit (as a sweet and tangy salsa or a melon starter)!
