  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup (250 g) shredded white cabbage
  • 2 cups (500 g) kale (stems removed), finely chopped
  • 1 small green chili pepper, finely chopped
  • A big handful of fresh cilantro, chopped, plus extra for garnish
  • 1 garlic clove
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 lb (450 g) hot-smoked salmon (or your favorite hot-smoked fish)

Directions

This recipe was created by our friend, Imen McDonnell (farmette.ie) and is taken from her book The Farmette Cookbook:
"Every Tuesday night, the farm kitchen is transformed into a taqueria. Whether we use our own chicken, whatever is fresh and fun at the fishmonger, or a fresh cut from the local butcher, a little Mexicana on the schedule saves us a three-hour drive to the nearest margarita and mole. Our favorite standby is Hot-Smoked Burren Salmon Tacos. Combining smoky chipotle with garden-fresh kale and cabbage verde, these fish tacos pack a rich and flavorful yet balanced punch, not to mention plenty of omega-3s and antioxidants."
  1. Make the crema: Mix the mayonnaise and sour cream together in a large bowl.
  2. Add the adobo sauce, cumin, and lemon juice; season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Make the verde: In a food processor, pulse the cabbage, kale, chili pepper, cilantro, garlic, lime juice, and salt to taste until coarsely chopped.
  4. Assemble the tacos: Flake the hot-smoked salmon into each tortilla, and top with a spoonful each of crema and verde. 2-3 tablespoons of queso fresco.
  5. Serve with lime wedges and cilantro.
  6. Feast.
