I love tacos. Fish tacos especially. I could basically live inside this taco and be happy for the rest of my life.
  • AIP tortillas
  • Fish & Fillings/Garnishes
  • ~2 cups worth of any white fish, chopped in bite-sized pieces
  • 1 c mix of tapioca flour , cassava flour, and tigernut flour (you can play around w/ the ratios based on what you have, I used about ⅓ c of each; if you're missing any, you can go 50:50 on the other two)
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup of oil/fat for frying (I used a mix of coconut, lard, and olive oil - avocado oil also works)
  • limes
  • radish
  • green cabbage
  • cilantro
  • Mango Salsa
  • 2 mangoes
  • handful of cilantro, minced
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 2 stalks of scallions, chopped
  • ½ purple onion, chopped
  • ½ jalapeño, minced (optional/omit for AIP)
  • pinch of sea salt
  1. Make mango salsa - chop mangoes in bite-sized pieces, add in chopped cilantro, lime juice, scallions, onion, jalapeño, salt, and mix until well-incorporated. Let sit for an hour or so for flavors to meld.
  2. Heat up oil on stove in pot on medium heat.
  3. Combine tapioca, cassava, tigernut, and salt to make breading mixture. Toss fish in mixture to coat well.
  4. When oil is hot (a drop of flicked water sizzles), put in first batch of fish pieces - try not to overcrowd the pot. Fry for about 3-5 minutes until browned, then drain on a paper towel. Repeat until all fish is fried.
  5. Assemble tacos! I.e. put fish on tortillas, put mango salsa on fish, put radish/cabbage/limes/cilantro on salsa ;)
