  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C and line a large baking tray with baking paper. Blitz the bread into coarse breadcrumbs in a food processor, then tip into a shallow bowl or plate and mix with 1 tsp olive oil. Cut the fish into 8 fingers, sprinkle with the paprika and season with pepper. Drizzle over 2 tsp olive oil and rub into the fish.
  2. Turn the fish fingers in the breadcrumbs, pressing and patting the crumbs into the fish, until coated. Transfer to the baking tray and bake for 10 mins until golden and cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, place the corn in a dry, non-stick frying pan on a medium heat and cook for 10-15 mins until nicely charred, turning occasionally. Coarsely grate the cabbage into a serving bowl, add 2 tbsp red wine vinegar, season with a tiny pinch of salt and mix well. Finely chop the tomatoes and place in a separate serving bowl.
  4. Transfer the charred corn to a board to cool, keeping the pan on the heat. Toast 2 tortillas in the hot pan for 5-10 secs on each side, keeping them warm in foil, and repeat with the remaining wraps. Carefully cut the kernels from the cobettes.
  5. To serve, pile up a tortilla with a dollop of yogurt, the crispy fish fingers, cabbage, tomato and corn. Add a shake of chilli sauce, if you like.
