Jamaican Jerk Fish Tacos With Plantain

Step 01

In a small bowl, combine cumin, chilli powder, curry powder, allspice, cinnamon, and salt and pepper. Rub the spice mixture and lemon juice over the salmon until fully coated. Cover and place the salmon in the fridge.
Pineapple salsa
Step 01
Preheat oven to 200°C. Coat the pineapple with coconut oil and place it on a baking tray, lined with parchment paper. Add jalapeno and roast it for 20 minutes or until pineapple is charred and caramelised.
Step 02
Be sure to turn the pineapple halfway through cooking. Remove from oven and let it cool.
Step 03
Once cooled, chop the pineapple and place it into a bowl.
Step 04
Remove seeds from jalapeno, chop and add it into the bowl. Stir in lime juice, cilantro and salt.
Plantain Rice
Step 01
Peel the plantains and chop them roughly until they resemble rice.
Step 02
Add coconut oil to a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add plantain rice and fry until golden and crisp for 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper.
Step 03
Stir in black beans and cilantro. Keep it warm.
Step 04
Place a cast iron skillet over high heat. Cook the fish for 4 minutes on each side. Turn off the heat and flake the salmon using a fork.
Step 05
To assemble the tacos, add plantain rice and salmon to the warmed tortillas. Top it with pineapple salsa, fresh cilantro, lime and a dollop of yoghurt if desired.
