Mahi Mahi Fish Tacos

In attempt to incorporate more fish into my diet, I’ve decided to dedicate one weekend night dinner a week to fish! Las night I made a summery version of Mahi Mahi fish tacos on the grill topped with mango salsa! If you don’t have mangos on hand feel free to use peaches or pineapple instead!

  • 1 mango, peeled, pitted and cubed
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted, and cubed
  • 1/2 cup red onion, chopped
  • juice from 1 lime
  • chopped fresh cilantro
  • salt and pepper
  • Canola oil
  • 2 mahi mahi fillets
  • 1 Tbsp blackening spice
    • 1 tsp cumin
    • 1 tsp paprika
    • 1/2 tsp cayenne
    • 1 tsp oregano
    • 1/2 tsp pepper
    • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 corn tortillas

Mix mango, avocado, onion, and juice from lime in bowl. Season with cilantro, salt, and pepper. Let sit in refrigerator until meal is ready. Heat a grill or grill pan until hot. Coat fish with oil and blackening spice rub. Cook fish on grill for 4 minutes on each side. Warm tortillas on grill or in the microwave to make pliable.


Divide fish among tortillas and top with mango salsa. Serve with lime wedges for garnish.

These tacos were so flavorful! I don’t know why I don’t make fish more often; I’m so glad I decided on it for dinner! Since summer is finally here (despite the rainy weather this past week in Chicago) I love trying out new recipes on the grill! I’m off on a bike ride to the Pilsen Farmer’s Market this morning with a friend; stay posted to updates!
