Fish Tacos ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ๐ŸŒฎ

Here is one of many fish taco recipes I'll be sharing. There are endless ways to make great fish tacos, especially as you move to more inauthentic ingredients. I stayed pretty authentic with ingredients on this one, to make a wonderful blend of flavors and textures. My fish of choice is mahi mahi, but any mild fish fillet will work just fine. This is a good gateway food for those that typically don't consume fish. This recipe will make about a dozen tacos. Oh by the way, this happens to be GLUTEN FREE! Let's get cooking!

The Marinade

2 TB chipotles in adobo, chopped

2 TB olive oil

1 tsp salt

1 TB Chili powder

1 tsp cumin, ground

1 # skinless Fish fillets. Mahi is my first choice, but any firm to semi firm fish will work just fine. I used grouper here.

Combine well and let marinate for about 30 minutes to no more than a few hours.

Mango Salsa

2 ea ripe mangoes, diced

1 red bell pepper, diced

1 habanero, minced, feel free to substitute a milder Chile, like jalapeno or serrano. I personally like the flavor (and heat) of habanero

1 bunch fresh mint, chopped (a hand ful of fresh mint leaves)

1/2 medium red onion, diced

Juice of 1/2 lime

Pinch of salt

Combine and set aside

Marinated cabbage

Very simple preparation here

1/2 head green cabbage, shaved, or slice very thin

1 tsp salt

Juice of 1/2 lime

1 tsp cumin, ground

Combine and let marinate at least 15 minutes

Cilantro Aioli

1 c mayo

Juice of 1/2 lime

1 tsp cumin, ground

Handful of cilantro, chopped


Now we have almost everything prepared, let's put it together!

Lastly you'll need soft corn tortillas. Heat them with a little oil on each side in a cast iron pan until they are soft and fluffy. I use a thicker yellow corn tortillas so I don't have to "double up" I won't be mad if you use flour tortillas, just make sure you warm them up the same way.

You can warm them up and place in a dish covered with a clean towel to hold.

Sear the marinated fish in a preheated cast iron or heavy skillet. Do not move it until you're ready to flip, otherwise you'll break up the fish, and end up with a mess!

The Build

On a warm tortilla add a bit of fish, the cabbage, a bit of mango salsa, a dollop of aioli. Consume immediately!
