Pack in the flavour and lots of veg with this simple fish taco recipe.

The perfect bite for sunny days, it’s an easy way to get your family eating more fish and just one portion counts as three of their five-a-day!

Poblano peppers originate in Mexico. They’re larger and much milder than jalapeños and rather good for adding a delicate kick to this creamy sauce.

If you can’t locate a pablona pepper, you can use a large padron pepper.
