Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa

Being a southern girl, we love all things spicy, flavorful and if you can wrap it up in a tortilla, even better!  Our families schedule is always super busy so I love my stock of quick and healthy recipes. To make things simple I tend to keep Tuesdays as Taco Tuesday. The kids(especially my boys) love this and it has kinda turned into tradition. One of my favorite taco recipes to make is Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa.

Can you say YUMM! Also, this meal is super easy to make in less than 30 minutes which is my kind of cooking. I know what some of you moms are thinking, “yeah right, I’ll never get my kids to eat fish”. I used to think the same thing so I searched out some yummy fish recipes that would get my kids interested. You know the kinds that make fish not taste like fish! haha Well, these fish tacos with mango salsa is one of the recipes that have made my kids fall in love with sea food. Now they ask for these fish tacos with mango salsa almost every week.

So, give this recipe a try and you family will be eating Taco Tuesday every week!


Fish Tacos:

  • Start with 4-6 fillets of cod or mahi mahi.
  • Sear in pan with 2 tbsp coconut oil.
  • Season with Mrs. Dash chipotle seasoning or your favorite seasonings.
  • Cook each side 3-5 minutes.
  • Fish should be white and firm.

Mango Salsa:

  • 1 large mango, peeled and diced
  • 2 Tbsp feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/3 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 large avocado, diced
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

I think fish tacos are best when served in corn tortillas plus it keeps the recipe healthy. Once fish and salsa is prepared all you doc is add the fish to the tortillas and top it off with the mango salsa. Bam, so simple! These Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa are also really great for parties. Every time I make them they are gone in minutes. Also, the mango salsa is really good when served with corn ships as an appetizer!
