    1. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Season the mahi mahi with salt and pepper. Cook the fillets in the hot oil until the fish is golden brown on each side and no longer translucent in the centre, about 3 minutes per side.
    2. Meanwhile, whisk together the soured cream, lime juice, ginger, cumin, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper to taste; set aside. Gently combine the mango, pineapple, avocado and chilli in a bowl.
    3. To assemble, place a cooked mahi mahi fillet into the centre of a warmed tortilla. Place a scoop of the mango salsa onto the fish, then drizzle with the soured cream sauce and finish with a generous pinch of chopped coriander .

    Wonderful recipe! I put red onions into the salsa that added a nice kick, as well as a second jalapeño. The dressing was delicious...some extra cumin gives it a some good spice. This was fast and easy to make, and everyone loved it.  -  08 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I just got back from a trip to Hawaii and was craving a fish taco like the one I had at a restaurant there. This comes VERY close...but without the view of the ocean! I even used a frozen mix of pineapple, mango, and papaya and it turned out lovely. Also, I didn't have mahi mahi, so used tilapia instead. This is a softer fish -- it tasted good, but the mahi mahi would have held up better. Still, a great tropical meal.  -  28 Feb 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I absolutely loved this, and it's super easy! I didn't have time to make fresh salsa, so I used a good quality salsa and just added fresh mango. It was quite good.  -  18 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
