Well it’s officially summer time! I can’t believe how fast it came! With summer time comes delicious summer time foods. There’s nothing like having a cookout at a friend’s pool or having a picnic at the beach. When it’s hot outside the last thing I want to eat is something heavy, I want fresh, colorful, light foods that won’t weigh me down when I'm in that bikini. I made these Mahi-Mahi fish tacos especially with the beach in mind. Make them at the beach, or at home to bring to the beach. Make some drinks, have a party with your friends and let them assemble their own tacos. Its much more fun to get everyone involved!
Mahi-Mahi tacos with fresh mango salsa
For the Mahi-Mahi
2 4 oz cuts of mahi mahi
1 lemon, sliced semi thin
4 oz dry white wine
Salt and pepper
2-3 tbsp butter
Lay out 2 large, square pieces of foil. Spray bottom with a non-stick spray. Season fish with a sprinkle of salt and pepper. In the center lay 2 slices of lemon. Place fish directly on top of the lemon. Cut a couple thin slices of chilled butter on fish. Place two more slices of lemon on top of that. Bring opposite sides of the foil together as if “wrapping the fish.” When you have created almost a “bag” look with the foil, before you wrap it up. Pour 2 0z white wine over fish. Place on hot grill or in 350-degree oven for about 15 minutes.
For the Mango salsa
2 mangos, chopped small
1 onion, chopped small
2 tomatoes, chopped small
½ bunch cilantro, chopped small
Juice of 2 limes
Salt and pepper (to your taste)
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Set aside.
For the tortilla
Brush EVOO over tortillas and place on hot grill for about 1-2 minutes on both sides to that tortilla has grill marks.
To assemble, break up mahi mahi onto the center of the grilled tortilla. Top with mango salsa, and serve!
