  • Divide fish in 12 portions. Spoon lettuce and radishes into tortillas then add fish portions. Serve tacos with Melon Salsa and lime wedges. Sprinkle with mild chili powder.

Teaching Notes:

If the fish is ready before the tortillas are heated, loosely cover the fish (in the baking pan) with foil to keep them warm.

Teaching Notes:

Prepare the salsa first, before baking the fish. Store it in the fridge until it's time to serve the tacos.
