preparation

1.  For the salsa, peel the papery husks off the tomatillos. Drop them (or the green tomatoes) and the jalapenos into a pan of boiling water. Simmer for 10 minutes, then drain and cool slightly. Tip them into a food processor and add the rest of the salsa ingredients (plus a little lime juice if you have used green tomatoes instead of tomatillos). Pulse the mixture for a few seconds until you have a fairly smooth sauce with a little bit of texture. Season with salt. Spoon into a serving bowl.

2.  Put the shredded lettuce, avocados, tomatoes, and onion into five other small serving bowls.

3.  To reheat the tortillas, stack them on a plate, cover with a dish towel, and microwave on high for about 30 seconds. Alternatively, heat a dry frying pan over a medium heat. Add a tortilla and leave it for a seconds, then turn it over and add a second tortilla on top of it. After a few seconds, turn them over together and add a third tortilla to the pan. Continue like this until all your tortillas are in the pah, then remove them and wrap them in a napkin. Keep them warm in a low oven while you cook the fish.

4.  Preheat the broiler. Cut the mahimahi fillets into short, chunky strips. Toss them with a little oil and plenty of seasoning, spread them out on a baking pan, and broil them for about 2 minutes on one side only, until just cooked through.

5.  Transfer the fish strips to a warmed serving plate and take it to the table with all the other bits and pieces. Let everyone fill their own tortillas with whatever they fancy.
