Mahi Mahi means "very strong" in the Hawaiian language - the fish is so good they named it twice! Also known as dolphinfish, due to its large dorsal fin and size, weighing up to 30 pounds, it's not related to the dolphin. Mahi Mahi is a beautiful fish that sparkles with colors of gold, blue and teal green, meaty in taste and texture, making it the perfect fish for tacos.
Mahi Mahi Tacos are a quick and easy dish to make for either lunch, brunch, or dinner and are filled with bursts of different flavors in every bite. Flour tortillas are crisped up in the oven and served with blackened pan-seared Mahi Mahi, topped with Pineapple Mango Salsa, shredded cabbage, and slices of avocado, fresh cilantro, and lime wedges to tie it all together. Enjoy with a pint of craft beer and some crispy tortilla chips on the side.
Let's not forget the health benefits of adding fish into your diet. Fish is a lean protein, low in calories and high amounts of omega-3s, iron, and vitamin B. This dish should leave you feeling satisfied with room for dessert! Finish your tacos off with a slice of Pineapple Upside Down Cake.
