Easy Mahi Mahi Fish Tacos

Mahi Mahi fish tacos are an amazingly delicious, easy, and healthy meal.  Even if you aren’t a big fan of fish, I think these tacos are something you will enjoy.

The ingredients

All you will need for these Mahi Mahi fish tacos are Mahi Mahi (I used Cod because my local supermarket was out of Mahi Mahi, even frozen), chili powder, cumin, ground cayenne pepper, avocado, cabbage blend, and flour tortillas.  Additionally, you can make a Baja type sauce with sour cream, mayonnaise, sriracha, and garlic powder.  I didn’t picture the optional sauce.

Making the Mahi Mahi fish tacos

The tacos are very easy to make, and the pictures are scarce.  But to start, you will mix all the seasonings together and season your fish generously.

Once the meat is seasoned, I like to let it rest with the seasoning for 5 minutes.  While it is resting, preheat your skillet with olive oil.  I also like to use that time to make my Baja sauce.  To make the Baja sauce simply add your sour cream, mayonnaise, sriracha (forgot to grab this so I used Chipotle Tabasco), lime juice, and garlic powder to a bowl.  Mix it well incorporating everything together.

Once the Baja sauce is made, toss your fish fillets on the preheated skillet with olive oil and cook until nice and flakey.  The fish will cook quickly, roughly 5 minutes total.  Once it is done place it on a plate and pull it into small pieces.

After it is cooked and pulled apart just put the fish into a nicely heated flour tortilla topped with your cabbage mix, avocado slice, and Baja sauce.

Making the Fish Tacos

  1. Start by mixing your chili powder, cumin, and cayenne pepper.  Generously coat your Mahi Mahi with the seasoning mix.  Let rest for 5 minutes.

  2. Heat up a skillet with olive oil.  Place the Mahi Mahi in the skillet and cook until done.  About 4 minutes per side.

  3. When the Mahi Mahi is done, remove it from the skillet.  In a separate, clean skillet, lightly toast your taco shells.

  4. Remove the shells and top your shredded Mahi Mahi across 4 shells.  1 filet of Mahi Mahi will make 2 tacos.
