  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 100g breadcrumbs, made from day-old bread
  • 3 tsp fajita seasoning (we used Santa Maria)
  • oil, for greasing
  • 400g haddock fillets, cut into chunky strips
  • 4 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 1 yellow pepper, sliced
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 ripe tomato, diced
  • 1 lime
  • 1 x pack flour tortillas
  • grated cheese and soured cream, to serve


  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6.

  2. Put the beaten egg into a shallow bowl. Tip the breadcrumbs onto a plate. Mix the fajita seasoning into the breadcrumbs.

  3. Brush a non-stick baking sheet with oil. Dip the fish strips into the egg, then coat them with the breadcrumbs. Transfer to the oven.

  4. Meanwhile, put the spring onions and peppers on a baking tray and turn them through a small amount of oil. When the fish has been in the oven for 5 mins, put the onions and peppers in. Bake for a further 10 mins until the fish fingers are golden.

  5. Mash the avocados with a fork and stir through the diced tomato, lime juice and some black pepper. Get the other accompaniments ready in bowls.

  6. Warm the tortillas for 15-30 secs in the microwave, or you can warm them through on a plate in the oven for a few mins.

  7. Place all the food in dishes on the table and let everyone dig in!
