Fish tacos are one of my favorite dishes to not only eat out at a restaurant, but also to make at home, because they are so incredibly easy and they come together in minutes. As we get into spring and summer, making fruit salsas to top the tacos with gives an otherwise savory dish a sweet kick making fish tacos completely irresistible.
A while back, I made Coconut Crusted Mahi and Lime Sweet Potatoes that had a delicious fruit salsa on it with kiwi fruit, pineapple, jalapeño and cilantro in it. I happened to have all of those ingredients in my fridge a couple weeks ago and a frozen mahi filet in the freezer, so fish tacos with fruit salsa was the result. I have seen ready made fruit salsas at the store before, so if you’d rather cut a corner and just purchase it, by all means, do that. Hope you enjoy these quick and easy tacos!

- 2 mahi filets, cut into in thick 1 inch strips
- juice of 2 limes
- 1 Tbsp of coconut oil
- salt/pepper to taste
- corn tortillas
- top with: avocado, cilantro, red cabbage and sour cream (optional)
- Grill pan
- Fruit Salsa :
- Makes about a cup
- 2 kiwi fruits, peeled and diced
- 1/2 cup diced mango
- 1/3 cup of pineapple
- 1 Tbsp finely chopped jalapeño (seeds removed unless you want some heat)
- 2 Tbsp of chopped cilantro
- 2 Tbsp of chopped fine red onion
- juice and zest of 1 lime
- pinch of salt
- In a small bowl, combine the lime juice, fish and salt and pepper. Only allow this to sit while you're heating up the grill pan or the lime juice will cook the fish.
- Heat the grill pan up to medium heat with the coconut oil. Place the strips of fish on the pan and cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side. You want them to be cooked through and have the nice black grill marks, but don't want them to be too over done. Remove from the heat.
- Place a few strips of fish on a warmed tortilla. Top with the salsa, cabbage, avocado and sour cream
- Fruit Salsa :
- Combine all the chopped fruit, the jalapeño, cilantro and red onion in a bowl. Zest the lime over the fruit mixture and then add the juice to the bowl. Toss gently to combine. Add a pinch of salt to bring out the flavors.
