Use any firm fish in these fabulous soft tacos. Swap spicy salsa for the fruit salsa if you prefer.

Ingredients

Table salt

½ tsp(s), or to taste

Uncooked Mahi mahi fillet(s)

1 pound(s), rinsed and patted dry

Ginger root

1½ tbsp(s), fresh, finely minced

Fresh lime juice

cup(s)

Dark brown sugar

½ tbsp(s), packed

Uncooked scallion(s)

¼ cup(s), finely minced

Corn tortilla(s)

8 item(s)

Olive oil cooking spray

8 spray(s)

Lettuce

2 cup(s), chopped, any type, shredded

Peach salsa

½ cup(s)

Fresh lime(s)

1 medium, cut into 4 wedges

Instructions

  1. Rub salt into fish; set aside.
  2. In a glass or ceramic baking dish, combine ginger, lime juice, sugar, scallions and cilantro; mix well. Add fish; turn to coat. Cover fish and marinate in refrigerator for 20 to 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat broiler to high. (If desired, line a broiler pan with aluminum foil for easy clean up.)
  4. Remove fish from marinade and place on broiler pan; brush with marinade. Broil for 6 minutes; flip fish and brush with marinade again. Cook until fish is no longer translucent in middle, about 5 to 7 minutes more depending on thickness of fish. Remove fish immediately; cut into 8 large pieces.
  5. Divide fish, lettuce and salsa among tortillas; fold in half and serve with lime. Yields 2 tacos per serving.

Notes

You can grill the fish, if desired. If you prefer your tortillas crisp, preheat oven to 300°F. Coat a cookie sheet with cooking spray and top with tortillas; coat with cooking spray. Bake until tortillas start to crisp but are still pliable. Or if an open flame is available, set tortilla on a flame and toast until it starts to char, about 30 seconds to 1 minute, flip and char second side. Make this recipe your own — serve with chopped scallions, fresh cilantro, chopped tomatoes, sliced jalapenos or hot pepper sauce.
