  • 1 corn cob, husk and silk removed
  • 4 flour tortillas
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 red onion, cut into wedges
  • 1 red capsicum, thickly sliced
  • 2 fresh thyme sprigs
  • 2 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Mexican chilli powder
  • 500g baby white potatoes, quartered
  • 2 x 400g cans diced tomatoes with basil and oregano
  • 4 x 160g boneless firm white fish fillets
  • 1/2 cup fresh coriander sprigs
  • 1 fresh jalapeño chilli, sliced
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges


  • Step 1
    Heat a chargrill pan over medium-high heat. Cook corn, turning, for 5 to 6 minutes or until tender and charred. Transfer to a board. Add 1 tortilla to pan. Cook for 1 minute on each side or until lightly charred. Cover to keep warm. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
  • Step 2
    Meanwhile, heat oil in a large deep frying pan over medium-high heat. Add onion and capsicum. Cook for 5 minutes or until softened. Add thyme, garlic and Mexican chilli powder. Cook for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add potato, tomatoes and 1 cup water. Cover. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer for 12 to 15 minutes or until potato is just tender.
  • Step 3
    Add the fish. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 to 7 minutes or until the fish is just cooked through (see notes). Remove and discard thyme sprigs.
  • Step 4
    Using a small knife, remove kernels from corn cob. Transfer to a bowl. Add coriander. Season with salt and pepper. Toss to combine. Sprinkle jalapeño and corn mixture over stew. Serve with tortillas and lime wedges.
