Mahi Mahi Tacos



Serves 6.



  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 (3 ounce) fillets mahi mahi fillets
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger root
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 dash cayenne pepper
  • 1 large mango – peeled, seeded and diced
  • 1 cup diced fresh pineapple
  • 1 avocado – peeled, pitted and diced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, minced
  • 6 (6 inch) flour tortillas, warmed
  • 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
