These Fish Tacos with Pineapple Salsa have a deliciously crispy crumb on the outside and big chunks of white fish on the inside. A little bit spicy from the combination of different herbs used to coat the fish, a little bit tangy from the pineapple, chilli, tomato and lime, and a whole lot of summer together in a lightly grilled soft mini taco.

Can be pre made several hours ahead. Add all ingredients to a large mixing bowl and stir to combine. Cover with a lid or plastic wrap until ready to serve. Make sure to add salt and pepper to taste.
Prepare 3 bowls. Add the plain flour to the first bowl. To the second bowl, add the egg and milk and whish until combined. To the third bowl add all the spices and panko breadcrumbs.
Making sure your fish pieces are no more than 2cm wide in strips, take one piece at a time and dip in flour, shaking off excess. Next dip in the egg wash. Finally press firmly into the crumb mixture, turning and pressing firmly a few times to coat thoroughly. Place crumbed pieces onto a clean plate. Repeat process until all the fish has been crumbed.
Cooking the fish: Heat a large pan with the olive oil on medium to high heat. Place the fish pieces into the pan for 3 to 4 minutes each side, or until golden brown.
Once cooked, remove from heat and remove fish from pan. Optional – drain on kitchen paper/paper towel.
In a small mixing bowl, place the mayonnaise and sirracha. Mix with a spoon until all combined.
Heat a griddle pan on high and place one tortilla at a time for 30 to 40 seconds each side until the char marks appear and the tortilla is warm. Repeat for remaining tortillas.
Grab a tortilla in one hand. Add some shredded cabbage and/or carrot. Add sauce. Add pineapple salsa. Add the fish. A little more salsa. Optional more sauce on top if you like.
Add 1 tablespoon of siracha to the Mayonaise for a medium level of heat in the overall sauce. For a mild taco sauce, reduce to 1 teaspoon of siracha (same quantity of mayo).
