    • 1 pound (455 g) thick, flaky fish, such as cod/ halibut

    • 1 tablespoon (15ml) white wine vinegar

    • 1 teaspoon (5ml) freshly chopped cilantro (coriander)
    • 79 ml sour cream
    • 5 ml chipotle, Cholula, Tabasco, or your favorite hot sauce
    • 4 to 6 corn or flour tortillas
    • 10 – 12 cherry tomatoes, halved

    A controversial choice for tonight’s sousvide midweek meal choice – a bit like marmite – you’ll either love them or you’ll hate them – which side of the fence will you be on?


    1. Fill and preheat your water bath to 132F/55.5C.
    2. Season the fish with the salt, pepper, chili powder and coriander.
    3. Put the fish into a small (1 quart/0.9 liter) cooking pouch and vacuum seal.
    4. Submerge the pouch in the water bath and cook for 20 minutes.
    5. Meanwhile, put the onions in a small bowl with the vinegar, salt, pepper and fresh coriander and set aside while the fish cooks; the onions will absorb the vinegar, which will make them taste milder and bring out the flavour of the coriander.
    6. Next, mix the sour cream with the hot sauce in a small serving dish or ramekin.
    7. Put the avocados and cherry tomatoes in two small serving dishes.
    8. Once the fish is cooked, remove the pouch from the water bath and gently take the fish out of the pouch using kitchen tongs.
    9. To assemble the tacos, place a heaped spoonful of the sous vide cooked fish onto the center of a tortilla and let guests top with the shredded lettuce, marinated onion, avocado, and tomato as they desire. Drizzle on the sour cream and serve with lime wedges and more hot sauce for those who want more heat!
