  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

  • 2 teaspoons grated lime zest

  • 1 ½ teaspoons honey

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon seafood seasoning (such as Old Bay®)

  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin

  • ½ teaspoon chili powder

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 pound mahi mahi fillets, diced

Lime-Cilantro Dressing:

  • ½ cup plain fat-free yogurt

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

  • 1 ½ tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

  • 1 (8 ounce) package flour tortillas, warmed


  1. Combine oil, vinegar, lime juice, lime zest, honey, garlic, seafood seasoning, cumin, chili powder, and black pepper in a nonreactive bowl or large resealable zip-top bag. Add mahi mahi and marinate for 8 hours, or overnight.

  2. At the same time, combine yogurt, lime juice, and cilantro for dressing in a bowl. Chill overnight while fish marinates.

  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate. Remove mahi mahi from marinade and place on a grill pan; discard excess marinade. Cook until fish flakes easily with a fork, turning as needed, about 5 minutes.

  4. Serve fish on warmed tortillas with dressing.
