  • 400 g fresh hake
  • 200 g Woolworths panko crumbs
  • 1 free-range egg, beaten
  • 2 T sunflower oil
  • 8 Woolworths mini white flour wraps
  • Woolworths Crunchita lettuce, for serving
  • Woolworths mini Rosa tomatoes, for serving
  • green chilli, for serving
  • 1 lemon
  • For the miso mayo, mix:
  • 4 T good-quality mayonnaise
  • 2 t Woolworths miso paste

1. Heat an air-fryer to 175°C. Cut the fish into 5 cm pieces.

2. Place the crumbs on a plate and beat the egg and oil together in a bowl.

3. Using a fork, dip the fish into the egg mixture, then toss in the crumbs. Place the fish on a plate.

4. Spray the air- fryer basket with oil. Place the fish in the basket and cook for 6 minutes.

5. Toast the wraps over an open flame or in a hot pan. When hot, place them in a bowl so that they fit tightly and leave to cool. They will form a taco shape.

6. To serve, fill the shells with the lettuce, tomato, chilli and fish. Spoon over the miso mayo and add a squeeze of lemon juice.

Cooks' note: If you don’t have miso paste, substitute it with 2 T soya sauce. As an alternative garnish, combine a readymade Woolworths slaw (the rainbow slaw gets our vote) with the miso mayo.
