2 Cans Banana Blossoms (Rinsed and Cut into Manageable Pieces)

1 ½ Cups Flour (Gluten Free, if needed)

1 Cup Shaved Coconut

1 Sheet of Nori (Finely Chopped)

4 Tbsp Flax Seed Meal

12 Tbsp Water

10 Corn Tortillas


Avocado (Sliced)

Fresh Cilantro

Red Cabbage (shaved)

½ Lime (Quartered)

Pico de Gallo:

Tomatoes (Diced)

1 Jalapeño (Seeds Removed and Diced)

1 Red Onion (Peeled and Diced)

1/2 Lime (Juiced)

Fresh Cilantro (Minced)

1 Jalapeño (Sliced)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F and wash and prepare all of the vegetables as directed above.
  2. In a small bowl combine the ingredients for the Pico de Gallo. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  3. In one medium bowl, combine the flour coconut and nori. Stir to incorporate.
  4. In another medium bowl combine the flax seed meal and water. Stir to combine and allow to sit for 10 minutes.
  5. One by one, dip the banana blossoms into the flax “egg” and then into the flour. Making sure they are completely covered in each step. Place them on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until they reach your desired crispness.
  7. Assemble the tacos. Briefly heat the corn tortillas one-by-one in a dry frying pan over medium/high heat. This should take one minute. Flip them once in between.
  8. Plate the tortilla and place a crisp banana blossom in the middle. Top with cabbage, pico de gallo, jalapeño, avocado and cilantro, if desired.
  9. Serve immediately while warm and enjoy!
  10. Store any leftover “fish” in an airtight container in the refrigerator separate from the other ingredients for up to 5 days. Reheat in the oven to help maintain their crispiness.
