Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/gas 4.
  2. Place the whole garlic bulb in the oven for 1 hour, or until softened, then remove.
  3. To make the pineapple salsa, trim and peel the pineapple, cutting out any brown scraggy bits, then slice into wedges, removing and discarding the core.
  4. Dry fry in a large frying pan over a medium heat for around 4 minutes, or until gnarly and charred, turning occasionally. Finely chop, then place in a bowl with all the lovely juices.
  5. Peel the onion, pick the mint leaves, then finely chop with the chillies (deseed if you like) and scrape into the bowl. Squeeze in the lime juice, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, then taste and season to perfection with sea salt and black pepper, and put aside.
  6. For the guacamole, peel the red onion, trim the spring onions, then roughly chop with the chillies (deseed if you like) on a large chopping board. Halve, deseed and add the tomatoes, destone the avocados and scoop over the flesh, then pick over most of the mint leaves.
  7. Chop and mix it all together until fine and combined, then squeeze over the lime juice and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil. Season to perfection, giving it one final chop.
  8. Very finely slice the red cabbage on a mandolin (use the guard!). Finely slice the jalapeño, then scrunch it all in a bowl with the vinegar to make a slaw.
  9. Squeeze the roasted garlic cloves out of their skins, then mash and fold it through the soured cream. Squeeze in the lime juice, add a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, then season to perfection.
  10. Pick, finely chop and stir in the parsley leaves. Wrap the tortillas in tin foil and warm them in the cooling oven.
  11. Drain the cannellini beans and put them into a frying pan on a medium-high heat for 5 to 7 minutes, or until they start to pop and blister. Place in a bowl and keep warm.
  12. Wipe the pan out and return it to a medium heat with a splash of olive oil. Season the haddock fillets and finely grate over the lemon zest, then cook skin side down for 4 minutes, pressing down lightly with a fish slice. Turn over for a further 3 minutes, or until slightly golden and just cooked.
  13. Divide up the tortillas and top each with a spoonful of guacamole and slaw. Flake over the fish, then top with the pineapple salsa, garlicky soured cream and crispy beans. Pick, chop and scatter over the remaining mint, and serve with extra sliced chilli and lime wedges, if you like.
