Here’s how you do it

  1. To make the mayonnaise, whisk together egg yolks, vinegar and mustard until combined.
  2. Either make in a food processor: with the blade running gradually, in a slow steady stream, start to add the oil allowing it to combine with the eggs (begin with a few drops to stabilize the eggs). The mix will start to become thicker and of a shiny consistency the more oil is added. or you can do it by hand, adding a few drops at a time and whisking until it emulsifies together. If you add the oil too quickly it won't come together properly.
  3. Add 1 tbsp of warm water if it becomes too thick and greasy looking. Once all the oil has been added, season to taste then stir through the finely chopped chives. Set aside for later.
  4. Next make the fish goujons. Cut the fish fillets into strips approx 5cm/1cm. Pour the flour onto a plate and season with salt and pepper. Pour the whisked egg into a shallow bowl with the milk and stir to combine. Place the breadcrumbs on another plate.
  5. Place the strips into the seasoned flour then pat off any excess. Next place the fish strips into the eggs and milk then drain off any excess.
  6. Finally coat the strips in the breadcrumbs. Repeat this process with an extra coating of egg and breadcrumbs for an extra crispy coating.
  7. Heat the vegetable oil in a deep frying pan (to 170°C) for 3-5 mins until coating is golden brown. Drain the fish strips on kitchen paper then season with salt and pepper.
  8. To assemble the tacos, warm the wraps in a dry frying pan then fill with the fish goujons and serve with the chive mayo.
