[Recipe] Turmeric and ginger fish ‘taco’ with pineapple salsa

A delicious healthy recipe commissioned from Sleekgeek Success Story turned Coach,  Sylvia Frank (read more about her here).

Carefully designed to fit in with the Sleekgeek Food List,  Healthy Meal Template, and  Portion Control Guide.



  • Quality Protein
    • 150 -200 g firm white fish of choice
  • Vegetables/Fruit
    • 1/4 small or half a medium pineapple
    • 1 spring onion
    • 1 small piece of fresh turmeric (if available)
    • 1 small knob of fresh ginger
    • About 2 – 3 firm, crisp lettuce leaves (cos or romaine lettuce works well)
    • 6 cherry tomatoes
    • Finely sliced spinach leaves or 1/2 cup baby spinach
  • Smart Carbs
    • I count pineapple as my carbs in this dish, but one could add chickpeas or black beans for extra carbs as needed.
  • Healthy Fats
    • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Herbs, spices and extras
    • 1/2 tsp Asijiki (or other) Turmeric
    • 1/2 half tsp Asijiki (or other) ground ginger
    • Salt 
    • Pepper
    • Garlic salt/ Asijiki Spice it Nice
  • Find your Sleekgeek Asijiki Brands spices over here


  • Dish or bag to marinate fish in.
  • Chopping board
  • Chopping knife
  • Grater with a very fine side
  • Frying pan
  • Measuring spoons
  • Processor or pestle and mortar


  • Peel and finely grate the fresh ginger and turmeric
  • Mix the olive oil, the turmeric and ginger, a pinch garlic salt or Spice it Nice and the salt and pepper. (If you did not use fresh turmeric and ginger then use a level tsp powdered turmeric and half a tsp ginger powder).
  • Place your fresh fish in a dish and coat with the above marinade, covering all sections.
  • Finely chop your spring onions.
  • Peel and finely chop your pineapple, blend briefly with the spring onions in a blender to combine or mash together with a pestle and mortar.
  • Season to taste.
  • If you are using fresh spinach leaves, de-stem and slice them finely.
    wash, dry and separate your lettuce leaves so that they are ready to be used as ‘tacos’
  • Halve your cherry tomatoes.
  • Heat your frying pan and fry the fish for a few minutes on each side until it flakes apart easily.
  • Remove from the heat and break it up into bite-size pieces.
  • Allow to cool.


  • This is a lovely dish to serve on platters so that everybody can help themselves. Just provide a platter of lettuce leaves, a bowl of cherry tomatoes and chopped spinach or baby leaves and a bowl of the pineapple salsa for people to help themselves
  • Nourishing summer lightness at it’s best.
  • Serve with a bowl of fresh lemon slices.
