My favorite cuisine has always been Mexican. As a child, I devoured bland bean and cheese burritos and simple tacos. Growing up, my tastes changed and included much more variety - including a love of spices, peppers and tomatoes.
Once I discovered my sensitivity to FODMAPs, it became clear that finding a taqueria that could accommodate my elimination of garlic and onion was a futile hunt. While this recipe isn’t laden with garlic, onion, beans and dairy, it does come packed with all the flavors to satisfy those cravings.

Juice of one lime
One jalapeno, deseeded, deveined and diced finely

First dice and chop all your pico de gallo ingredients, give it a nice stir and let those flavors marry together in the refrigerator.
Pat the fish filets dry with paper towels, and sprinkle with a mixture of the chili powder, salt, black pepper, coriander and cumin.
Heat the canola oil in a nonstick skillet over high heat. Fry the fish filets for 3 minutes on each side, or until cooked to your preferences. Use the spatula to break the filets into bite-sized pieces.
Heat the corn tortillas - I used my cast iron skillet over medium-low heat.
Serve immediately with a generous spoonful of pico de gallo on each taco, and enjoy!
