Crispy Fish Taco with Black Mamba Jalapeno Sauce

Taco Tuesday can be any day of the week with Black Mamba chilli sauces.  This is a real crowd-pleaser, and if you want to make it even easier – simply buy the crumbed frozen fish from our seafood department and bake/fry it up.

The Black Mamba Jalapeno Sauce is a fusion of subtle heat and intense flavour in this sneaky Chilli Venom, made with organic green jalapeno chillies, will have you craving the next bite. Try it with grilled chicken and roasted veggies, mixed with olive oil and lemon for a zingy salad dressing, or with natural yoghurt for a scrumptious dip.
