  • 6 large corn tortillas, or flour tortilla

  • 1 tbsp canola oil

  • 1 tbsp honey

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1 large skin-on rainbow trout fillet, (about 400 g)

  • 2 cups shredded iceberg lettuc

  • 2 plum tomatoes, finely chopped

  • 2 cups finely chopped pineapple, or mango

  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro


  • Brush one side of tortillas with oil, then stack. Cut out smaller tortillas (perfect for small hands) using a 4-in. or 4 1/2-in. round cookie cutter. You should have 18. Wrap tortillas in plastic wrap and set aside.

  • Preheat barbecue to medium-high.

  • Stir honey with paprika and salt in a small bowl until it forms a paste. Pat fish dry. Rub paste all over flesh of fish.

  • Oil frill. Barbecue fish skin-side down, with lid open, until a knife tip inserted into the thickest part of fish and held for 10 sec feels warm, 15 to 17 min for every in. of thickness.

  • Barbecue mini tortillas until grill marks appear, about 10 sec per side.

  • Slide a thin metal spatula between fish skin and flesh, then lift fillet off skin and onto a cutting board.

  • Cut fish into bite-sized pieces. Serve on grilled tortillas, topped with sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes, pineapple and cilantro.
