While the fish is still warm, put in a non-metal dish so that it is tightly packed. Pour over the onion marinade and spread it out over the fish. Cool, cover and chill for a couple of hours.

    Brush each side of the tortillas with a little oil, put on a baking sheet and sprinkle with a little sea salt. Bake in the oven for 4-5 minutes until golden and crisp, then cool.

  • STEP 5

    Top the crisp tortillas with the bream and onion mixture and finish with some salsa. Drizzle over a little of the marinade and serve immediately.
