It's Thursday again so my wife's friends are over painting and chatting. Barbara, one of the ladies in the group, had e-mailed me a recipe for fish tacos so I thought I would surprise them something different.
Here is the e-mail. I followed it pretty close and I must say it was refreshing and tasty! Of course I used Striped Bass not Mahi.

Hi Art Buds,

My lovely son-in-law sent me his recipe for Fish Tacos and the Mango Salsa. His boys love this recipe….

He cuts up some red or yellow onion and some finely chopped green onion for the salsa, even though the recipe does not include onion.

Cook This: Grilled Fish Tacos
We ditch the frying oil and mayo of most chain fish tacos but maintain the flavor by subbing in spicy blackening seasoning and a nutrient-rich mango-avocado salsa

Who doesn't love fish tacos? South of the border, the fish is always battered and fried and served with an aggressive dousing of mayonnaise. We wanted to ditch the frying oil and mayo but maintain the flavor, so we subbed the spicy blackening seasoning and a nutrient-rich mango-avocado salsa, which cuts the heat and pairs perfectly with the fish. This salsa would make gardening gloves taste good.

You'll Need:
1 mango, peeled, pitted, and cubed
1 avocado, pitted, peeled, and cubed
Juice of 1 lime, plus wedges for garnish
Chopped fresh cilantro
Salt and black pepper
Canola oil
2 large mahimahi fillets (1 1/2 lb total)
1 Tbsp blackening spice
8 corn tortillas
2 cups finely shredded red cabbage

How to Make It:
*Mix the mango, avocado, onion, and the juice of 1 lime in a bowl. Season with cilantro, salt, and pepper.

*Heat a grill or stovetop grill pan until hot. Drizzle a light coating of oil over the fish and rub on the blackening spice. Cook the fish, undisturbed, for 4 minutes. Carefully flip with a spatula and cook for another 4 minutes. Remove.

*Warm the tortillas on the grill for 1 to 2 minutes or wrap in damp paper towels and microwave for 1 minute until warm and pliable.

*Break the fish into chunks and divide among the warm tortillas. Top with the cabbage and the mango salsa. Serve with the lime wedges.

Not That!
