Fish Tacos with Radish Avocado Relish
Crunchy radishes, buttery avocados, and tangy feta cheese—with a hint of chile and lime—are an inspired accent for fresh cod.
1 cup (5 ounces/140g) red radishes, cut into small dice
1 large, ripe, firm avocado, cut into small dice
1 Anaheim (chile) pepper, cut into small dice
3 tablespoons (45ml) thinly sliced spring onion
2 tablespoons (30ml) minced cilantro leaves
2 tablespoons (30ml) fresh lime juice
¼ teaspoon (1.25ml) salt
2 tablespoons (30ml) extra virgin olive oil, divided
1¼ pounds (565g) cod fillets
salt and freshly ground black pepper
8 (7-inch/18cm) corn tortillas
6 ounces (170g) feta cheese, crumbled
