Mexican Fiesta spice blend
white wine vinegar
• Thinly slice red onion (see ingredients). • In a small bowl, combine white wine vinegar and a good pinch of sugar and salt. Scrunch onion in your hands, then add it to pickling liquid. • Add just enough water to cover the onion, then set aside.
• Roughly chop tomato and cucumber. • Drain, rinse and halve banana blossom lengthways. • SPICY! The spice blend is hot, use less if you're sensitive to heat. In a shallow bowl, combine Mexican Fiesta spice blend, plain flour and the water. In a second shallow bowl, place panko breadcrumbs. • Dip banana blossom in flour mixture followed by panko breadcrumbs. Transfer to a plate.
• Heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat with enough olive oil to cover the base of the pan. • When oil is hot, cook crumbed banana blossom in batches until golden and cooked through, 2-3 minutes each side. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel.
TIP: Add extra oil if needed so the banana blossom does not stick to the pan.
• In a medium bowl, combine tomato, cucumber, a pinch of salt and a drizzle of olive oil and white wine vinegar. • Microwave mini flour tortillas in 10 second bursts, until warmed through. • Drain pickled onion. • Divide salad leaves and crumbed banana blossom between tortillas. Top with cucumber salsa and pickled onion. • Drizzle over plant-based mayo to serve.
