8 tacos


  • 1 teaspoon adobo seasoning

  • 4 (3 ounce) fillets mahi mahi

  • 1 dash lime juice

  • 1 medium tomato, diced

  • ½ red onion, chopped

  • 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro

  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

  • cooking spray

  • 8 (6 inch) corn tortillas

  • 1 avocado, sliced


  1. Season mahi mahi lightly with adobo seasoning and 1 dash of lime juice.

  2. For the pico de gallo: Mix tomato, red onion, cilantro, scallions, and 2 tablespoons lime juice together in a bowl. Set aside.

  3. Lightly spray a nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat on medium-high heat and cook mahi mahi until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Reduce heat to low; cook, covered, until fish flakes easily with a fork, about 10 minutes.

  4. Place corn tortillas between damp paper towels; microwave until heated through, 30 seconds to 1 minute.

  5. Place 1/2 of each mahi mahi fillet on a tortilla. Top each with 2 slices avocado and 1 scoop of pico de gallo.
