It is quick and easy and so delicious, you are guaranteed to make this part of the regular dinner rotation.
The Flavor’s In the Fish
The trick with these Mahi Mahi fish tacos is to season them aggressively. Keep in mind that when you put them in the pan you will lose some of the seasonings, so don’t be afraid. When you saute your vegetables add a little salt to them too. The trick is in the flavor and the flavor is in the fish. Be careful not to overcook your fish too. I have made this mistake in the past and ended up with some pretty dry fish. Five ounce filets should be cooked for about three to five minutes per side, depending on their thickness. If you attempt to flip your fish and you feel some resistance, wait. This is the fish’s way of telling you it is not ready to be turned. Also using a good fish spatula will help in this department.And if you try it will fall apart. When the fish is ready it will be easy to turn. You want them to flake easily with a fork and glisten with juiciness. By the time you top these with the vegetables, a little sauce and a squeeze of fresh lime, you will be salivating.
