- Preheat your oven (for the tortillas) to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
- Drain the sweetcorn in a sieve.
- Place a large pan over high heat (no oil).
- Once the pan is hot, add the sweetcorn and cook until charred, 5-6 mins. Adjust the heat if necessary.
- Stir only twice during this time—you want the sweetcorn to pick up a nice colour.
TIP: To avoid turning on your oven, dry-fry the tortillas in a pan instead.
- Meanwhile, pat the hake dry with kitchen paper and coat with 1 tbsp flour (double for 4p). Season with salt and pepper. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw fish.
- Cut the tomato into 2cm chunks.
- In a medium bowl, combine the vinegar with ½ tsp of sugar (double for 4p), salt and pepper. This is your dressing
- When the sweetcorn is finished cooking, add it to the dressing along with the tomato and toss to coat.
- Give the pan a wipe and return to medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
- Once hot, lay the hake into the pan and fry until golden, 4-5 mins on each side. IMPORTANT: Fish is cooked when opaque in the centre.
- Once cooked, transfer from the pan to a board to slice before serving.
- While the fish is frying, trim the baby gem, halve lengthways and thinly slice widthways.
- Trim and thinly slice the scallion.
- Pop the tortillas into the oven to warm, 1-2 mins.
- Mix the aioli and korma paste in a small bowl.
- When the fish is cooked, carefully slice the fillets into 2cm thick fingers.
TIP: Don't worry if the fish breaks apart while slicing, it will still taste delicious!
- Share the tortillas between plates.
- Top with spoonfuls of salad, load on the fried fish and sprinkle on the charred corn and tomato salsa.
- Drizzle over the curried aioli.
- Finish by topping with the sliced scallion.
