  • 1 lime, juice
  • 40g butter
  • 1 packet store bought soft tortillas


  • To a hot frying pan, add 1 tbsp oil, season both sides fish and place into the pan. Drizzle remaining olive oil over fish and cook for 3-4 minutes each side or until cooked through.  Meanwhile, add gochujang paste and ZoOSh mayonnaise to a bowl and stir to combine.
  • Into a second bowl, add Thai basil, mint and bean sprouts. Squeeze over the lime juice, add a pinch of salt and toss with hands until coated.
