  • 1 avocado

  • 1 bunch coriander

  • 4 spring or salad onions

  • 1/3 cup sour cream

  • 1 tablespoon pickled or fresh jalapenos

  • Juice of 1 lime, plus wedges for serving

  • 2 chopped tomatoes

  • 400g black beans, rinsed

  • 300g can corn, drained

  • 1/3 cup olive oil

  • 600g firm white fish of your choice

  • 2 tablespoons of your choice of spices

  • 450g rice of your choice

  • Lettuce, cut into wedges



  • First make your dressing using the avocado, half the coriander, half the spring onion, sour cream, jalapenos, half the lime juice, and 2 tablespoons water. Pop these into a food processor or blender and whizz until smooth.
  • Next, using the rest of the coriander, spring onion, tomatoes, beans, corn, 2 tablespoons oil and remaining juice create your salsa by chopping up and combining. Season the salsa with salt and pepper and set aside.
  • Put your fish, spice mix, and 1 tablespoon of oil into a medium bowl and coat with the spices and oil. Heat a medium-sized pan with some olive oil and cook your fishing, turning every 3 to 4 minutes until charred and just cooked through.
  • Cook your rice according to the packet’s instructions.
  • Now it’s time to plate and serve! Use your rice as a base, flake the fish over the rice, follow that with the salsa and dressing, then garnish with jalapenos, lettuce, and lime wedges.

The ideal springtime meal!
