crusted mahi tacos

Taco Tuesday is coming in hot. Be prepared with these tasty little fish tacos. Quick cooking white fish is dredged in coconut flour and fried up, placed atop my paleo tortillas with an easy little slaw and some sweet pineapple salsa. Make all the pieces in advance and then all you’ll need to do is assemble come dinner time! Good news is they even taste great leftover the next day.

Crusted Mahi Tacos

Serves 4-5

Ingredients:

Directions:

Dredge your fish in the coconut flour and set aside. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add butter or oil. Sear your fish on each side until golden brown and crispy.

Assemble your tacos by spreading some roasted poblano sauce on your tortilla, placing your fish on top, throwing on a mix of cabbage, dolloping on some pineapple salsa, and adding a sprinkle of cilantro. These tacos are good enough to share with bae… or might just be bae.

Oh baby, have I got the salsa for you. Sweet caramelized pineapple, cooked low and slow with mild bell pepper and juicy tomatoes, all blended together with just the right amount of lime and cilantro. It may look like mush, but this is one mush you’re gonna want to put on everything. I used it on my crusted mahi tacos (recipe to come!).

Sweet Pineapple Salsa

Ingredients

  • 3/4 pineapple, cored and chopped
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, chopped
  • 6-8 cherry tomatoes
  • juice from 1 lime
  • cilantro

In a cast iron skillet (or regular nonstick pan) over medium heat, cook pineapple chunks and yellow bell pepper until they begin to turn golden brown(you may need to add a splash or two of water to the mix if too dry and the pineapple isn’t caramelizing well). Throw in cherry tomatoes and continue to cook until their skin blisters. Let cool.

Add pineapple, pepper, and tomato mix to a blender. Add in the juice of 1 lime and desired amount of cilantro (I like to go light on the cilantro, just a few tablespoons for me). Pulse until salsa is well blended, but still thick. Serve in salsas, eat with chips, whatever your heart desires.
