WOW! A flavour explosion! Smokey chipotle mayo crema with sweet and sharp picked red cabbage and crispy battered fish... This might be my new favourite recipe.

We're loving the contrast of that vibrant red cabbage with the coriander - an explosion of flavours and colours! We're so happy to hear that you've found a new favourite from the Taco Legend book!
