  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Cut each tortilla into 8 triangles and spread out over 2 baking trays. Bake for 5-6 mins until crisp and just starting to turn golden.
  2. Meanwhile, dot the fish with butter. Place on a microwavable plate, cover loosely and cook on full power for 5 mins*, turning halfway. Transfer to a clean plate, pat dry with kitchen paper, then flake and gently toss with 75g salsa.
  3. Put the tortillas in an ovenproof dish, top with the fish and scatter over the cheese. Bake for 5-7 mins until the cheese starts to melt.
  4. Meanwhile, mix the cherry tomatoes and chopped coriander into the remaining salsa. Serve a few spoonfuls on top of the nachos (serve the remainder on the side). Scatter over the spring onions and reserved coriander leaves.
