A warm, flavorful dish filled with mahi-mahi, fresh fruit and an exotic ginger-lime dressing. Unique, yet tasteful, this recipe is inspired by the fresh seafood recipes in Mexico and Central America. I serve chips and salsa on the side.

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the mahi-mahi with salt and pepper. Cook the fillets in the hot oil until the fish is golden brown on each side, and no longer translucent in the center, about 3 minutes per side.

  • Meanwhile, whisk together the sour cream, lime juice, ginger, cumin, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper to taste; set aside. Gently combine the mango, pineapple, avocado, and jalapeno in a bowl.

  • To assemble, place a cooked mahi-mahi fillet into the center of a warmed tortilla. Place a scoop of the mango salsa onto the fish, then drizzle with the sour cream sauce, and finish with a generous pinch of chopped cilantro.

Wonderful recipe! I put red onions into the salsa that added a nice kick as well as a second jalapeño. The dressing was delicious...some extra cumin gives it a some good spice. This was fast and easy to make and everyone loved it. Read More

I came to the conclusion that my family does not like fish tacos. We like mahi mahi but I don't think that the salsa or the sour cream sauce went with the fish. I made the recipe exactly as followed. We ended up eating the fish plain and used the salsa with corn chips (after adding more jalapeno to add some heat and cut down on the sweetness). All said and done we will probably not be making this again. Read More

I just got back from a trip to Hawaii and was craving a fish taco like the one I had at a restaurant there. This comes VERY close...but without the view of the ocean! I even used a frozen mix of pineapple mango and papaya and it turned out lovely. Also I didn't have mahi mahi so used tilapia instead. This is a softer fish -- it tasted good but the mahi mahi would have held up better. Still a great tropical meal. Read More

I absolutely loved this and it's super easy! I didn't have time to make fresh salsa so I used a good quality salsa and just added fresh mango. It was quite good. Read More

Very good and tasty. Next time though I might do without the s.c sauce. Was sort of bitter compared to the rest of the taco...but overall...excellent Read More

The ginger lime dressing is delicious and could go with just about any fish taco not just mahi mahi. I replaced the salsa recipe with my own because I prefer tomatoes to avacadoes. Also shredded cheese on the tacos is a good compliment. I would recommend adding shredded lettuce beans or rice to the taco in order to give it body. Even with liberal servings just the fish and the topping doesn't do it for us. Read More

"THe best fish taco i've ever had" says the boyfriend. It really was delicious. I was tempted to add more seasoning to the fish, but didn't (glad I didn't). Tempted to skip the sour cream sauce (really glad I didn't). If you taste it on it's own, the sauce may seem a little out of place... but it pairs so nicely with the salsa - I wouldn't skip it ever! And about the salsa, I added some red onion, mainly for color but also flavor. It was ok. I added some lime juice and salt and pepper...ba-bam! It was so good, I had to get rid of the spoon so I'd stop eating it before the fish was ready! Skipped the cilantro because BF doesn't like it, but I didn't miss it. I am looking forward to making them again!! This was a real winner! Read More

The family ooo-ed and ahhh-ed over this one and claimed the recipe was a keeper! The flavors blend nicely: it's just the right amount of sweet creamy savory and heat. I was even complimented on how the textures blended so well. The only complaint was that the ginger sauce ran out too soon. Next time I'd probably make 4 times as much since we have some big eaters here. This would probably also be great with pork or chicken too!! Read More

Someone gave us some Mahi Mahi and I wasn't sure what to do with it but found this recipe. Mangos aren't in season here in Puerto Rico right now so I left them out. Both the sauce and the salsa were still amazing! I recommend fresh pineapple because the acids preserve the color of the avocado and add a bit of sweet bite better than canned would. I will definitely make this again. We served it with you-bake tortillas from Costco. DELICIOUS! Who knew I'd like fish tacos? Read More

These turned out really well. I made them as directed but ended up really increasing the heat and flavor of the sauce and the salsa towards the end. I think a green taco sauce would be excellent with this to counter the sweetness in addition to the ginger-lime dressing and fruit salsa. I added red cabbage to our tacos for texture. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
