  2. Make Pico De Gallo by mixing all ingredients together and seasoning with salt.
  3. Light BBQ and bring grill to heat. Close the lid to ensure grills are nice and hot.
  4. Make Green Tomato Verde by baking the green tomatoes in the oven for 10 minutes at 250C. in food processor with all other ingredients.
  5. Cook steak until desired doneness. Let steak rest for approximately 6 minutes then slice across the grain.
  6. Toast tortillas for 30 seconds on each side. Assemble tacos by placing some mayo on tortilla, laying baby gem cos lettuce and sliced scotch fillet on top and adding a spoonful of Green Tomato Verde.
