Notes
  • I used basa fillets but any mild white fish will work for this recipe.
  • Feel free to omit chili powder or adjust amount used according to your spice tolerance.
  • For dairy-free, substitute Greek yogurt with coconut yogurt or omit completely.
  • Feel free to omit garlic and onion if they bloat you.
  • You may use any tortillas that suit your dietary requirements (eg. corn, wholewheat, gluten-free etc.)
