Cooking instructions

Pre-heat oven to 180ºC.

To prepare the ling, place it into a small bowl, adding sea salt and the horopito rub. Mix until well combined then place onto a greased baking tray.

For the pico de gallo, combine caster sugar and vinegar in a medium bowl and mix until sugar is dissolved. Place red onion into the vinegar mix and leave for at least 30 minutes. Drain the onion from the vinegar mix and discard vinegar mix. Add tomatoes and coriander to the onions and mix until well combined.

For the lime yoghurt, combine yoghurt and zest and mix until well combined.

To serve, cook the fish in a preheated oven for 4-6 minutes. Lay out the tortilla rounds. Spread a level teaspoon of lime yoghurt on each round. Place a baby spinach leaf on top of each round, followed by a piece of cooked ling. To finish, garnish with pico de gallo.
