Mahi-Mahi Fish Tacos with Mango and Avocado Salsa
Light and flavorful fish tacos with a sweet and savory salsa can be made for two in fewer than 30 minutes… using just one pan and one bowl!Yield:
1 hass avocado, diced
1 mango, diced
2 plum tomatoes, diced
1 tablespoon cilantro, minced
zest of 1/2 of a lime
juice of 1 lime, divided
1 6-ounce piece of wild mahi-mahi
1 teaspoon taco seasoning
1 cup + 1 tablespoon canola oil
6 white corn tortillas
1/2 cup shredded carrots and cabbage mixture
- First, prepare the avocado mango salsa. Combine the diced avocado, mango, plum tomato, and cilantro in a bowl. Sprinkle with lime zest and lime juice. Mix well and place in the refrigerator until your ready to construct the tacos.
- Season the mahi-mahi with the taco seasoning on both sides, and set to the side. Then, preheat a 3 quart sauté pan on medium heat.
- Add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. Cook the mahi-mahi for 5 minutes, turn over and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Then remove the fish from the pan and set to the side (to keep it warm you can tent the fish with a piece of aluminum foil).
- Using the same sauté pan, add in 1-cup canola cooking oil. Increase the heat to high. After the oil has heated for 1-2 minutes, place one white corn tortilla in the skillet. Once it begins to bubble (about 10-15 seconds) turn the corn tortilla over, let it stand for 5 seconds then using tongs fold one end in half. Rotate each side for a few seconds until golden brown. Once the corn tortilla shell is golden brown, remove from the sauté pan and place on a paper-towel lined plate. Repeat until all the taco shells have been cooked.
