This recipe makes approximately 8-10 street tacos.
- 1 package of Gardein Golden Fish-Less Filets

SPICY MAYO SAUCE
- 1/2 cup Follow Your Heart Veganaise or vegan mayo of choice
- 1 TBSP sweet relish
- 1 TBSP chili paste
- Dash of cayenne pepper (to taste)
- 1 TSP lime juice (to taste – use a section of your fresh lime or premade juice)
- 4-5 small radishes
- Fresh cilantro
- 1/2 CUP sliced/shredded purple cabbage
- Pico de Gallo (store bought or homemade – diced cilantro, onions & tomato)
- 1 medium lime
- 1 large avocado

Dry your produce then chop radishes into thin slices, dice your cilantro and shred/slice your cabbage. Set toppings aside. If you’re making your own pico, this is the time to dice and combine those ingredients as well.
Check your filets again if you’re air-frying. By now, they’re probably almost done (minutes 12-15). Allow them to remain in the air fryer until they’ve reached your desired level of crispiness.
Carefully halve the avocado, remove the pit, slice and scoop. You want this to happen relatively close to your serving time so the avo is still cool.
Remove filets from oven/air fryer, and put your tortillas into the air-fryer at 400 degrees for 2 minutes. Now slice each filet length-wise to make two pieces.
Remove warmed tortillas from the air-fryer and place on plates. For each taco layer a spoonful of spicy mayo followed by 1-2 pieces of filet, cabbage, radish, pico and a slice of avocado. Sprinkle fresh cilantro on top followed by a liberal squirt of lime and a few dashes of sea salt.
