fish tacos


– Fresh white fish fillets (such as cod or mahi-mahi)

– Corn or flour tortillas

– Olive oil

– Taco seasoning

– Salt and pepper

– Fresh lime juice

– For the Mango Salsa:

  – Ripe mango, diced

  – Red onion, finely chopped

  – Fresh cilantro, chopped

  – Jalapeño, seeded and diced

  – Lime juice

  – Salt and pepper to taste


1. Prepare the Fish: Start by brushing the fish fillets with olive oil and seasoning generously with taco seasoning, salt, and pepper. Squeeze fresh lime juice over the fillets and let them marinate for 15-20 minutes while you prepare the salsa.

2. Make the Mango Salsa: In a mixing bowl, combine diced mango, red onion, cilantro, jalapeño, lime juice, salt, and pepper. Stir gently to combine, then cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

3. Grill the Fish: Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Place the seasoned fish fillets directly onto the grill grates and cook for 3-4 minutes per side or until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork. Remove from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes.

4. Warm the Tortillas: While the fish is grilling, warm the tortillas on the grill for about 30 seconds per side until they are soft and slightly charred.

5. Assemble the Tacos: To assemble the tacos, flake the grilled fish into bite-sized pieces and divide evenly among the warmed tortillas. Top each taco with a generous spoonful of mango salsa.

6. Serve & Enjoy: Garnish with additional cilantro and a squeeze of lime juice if desired. Serve immediately and savor the fresh flavors of summer by the water.
