Bringing you an easy West African recipe today. These grilled fish tacos take me back to warm Sierra Leonean evenings, drinking cold ginger beer, piling guava salsa on grilled fish straight off the barbeque and catching up about this and that. Oh those days.
I have tried to recreate these healthy fish tacos here, using corn tacos instead of the Mediterranean bread wraps we would have used. But feel free to use whatever you have available in your pantry. It is all good.
Instead of taco sauce I have used a simple guava salsa to add some spice to wraps. Use the quantities of ingredients for the salsa as a guideline only as it depends on the size of the guavas, how ripe they are etc. Add more or less lemon and olive oil to your taste.
I hope you like these. I certainly do.
