Mahi tacos with mango salsa


It's been quite a long time since I posted a recipe of any kind so after I made these mahi tacos for the second night in a row, I figured it was worthy of sharing.  I'm really over heavy winter foods and have actually been using the grill for a few weeks now.  These tacos are so simple but are the perfect spring and summer dinner.  You can use any mild white fist- just please don't use tilapia!


I covered the mahi with a very generous amount of Old Bay...I suppose you could use any seafood seasoning but you can't beat Old Bay.


I also give them a quick spray with Pam before I put them on the grill.  They cook pretty quick- just about 10 minutes or so.


The black marks are my favorite part.  When I was younger, I used to tell my mom to really burn whatever she was cooking on the grill because I liked the cripsy black pieces.


The mango salsa is so easy.  Dice up two mangoes, 1/4-1/2 red onion, a handful of cilantro and juice from half a lime.  I prefer the small golden honey mangoes- they're a little sweeter.


This sauce is really just one cup of fat free greek yogurt, one whole mashed avocado, a handful of cilantro, juice from half of a lime, salt and pepper.  You won't believe how good this is! I was eating it with a spoon after I made it- and it's just avocado and yogurt!  I had a bunch left over so I've got to find another use for it.


I topped each taco with shredded cabbage.  Todd likes his cabbage wilted down in a pan for just about a minute but well...wilted cabbage is not photogenic so use your imagination!

This will definitely be on our spring and summer dinner rotation.  And by rotation...I mean maybe again tomorrow.

  2. I make a similar recipe, except I just load up the avocado on my taco! I also make a side of "green rice" where I blend up some fresh spinach, cilantro, salt, and lime juice and heat it through with some rice. It makes a beautiful side along the fish tacos.

    And now I need to make some fish tacos, thanks for the inspiration. We are so lucky that my husband goes offshore fishing a lot in the summer and catches lots of mahi, so our freezer is stocked. :)
