If I could give Monday a big fat bear hug, I would.

Mahi Mahi Fish Tacos with Chipotle Mango Salsa-1Yes, you read correct. I am happy it is Monday.

The weekend was cold, snowy, loud, and non-stop.

Actually, that is pretty much every weekend around here.

Mahi Mahi Fish Tacos with Chipotle Mango Salsa-3Our house is loud, messy, and full of chaos.

This is the total opposite of my personality.

If you have not figured it out by now, I am a total type A person. I like a very clean and calm environment. I like lists and I like routines. My family however, does not. How I have survived nineteen years with them is beyond me. I love them to death, but they drive me insane!

My family thinks I am clinically insane, but I am 99% sure any other normal person would run screaming from our house.

Mahi Mahi Fish Tacos with Chipotle Mango Salsa-5For some reason this weekend was especially loud. I think it was due to the fact that Asher HAD to wear my black pumps all over the kitchen. She clamped like crazy for what felt like hours.

Oh, and I am pretty sure she walks better than I do in heels. She is talented. Very talented.

Mahi Mahi Fish Tacos with Chipotle Mango Salsa-6So yeah, I am super happy it is Monday. Things a normally a little calmer during the week. Normally, but again in the Gerard house you can always expect the unexpected.

Anyway, let’s talk tacos! Specifically, Mahi Mahi Fish Tacos with an insanely delicious Chipotle Mango Salsa!

Mahi Mahi Fish Tacos with Chipotle Mango Salsa-9

Yeah you guys, Mango Salsa is pretty much just amazing! Like whoa! Especially with crispy Mahi Mahi all stuffed into a warmed tortilla.

Plus, these tacos are so much fun. They totally take you to a tropical place, even if is a blizzard outside (seriously, the snow has not lightened up since Friday afternoon and it is still going strong). Oh, and did I mention they take maybe thirty minutes to throw together. So really there is NO excuse not to make these tonight.

Chipotle Mango Avocado Salsa

  • 1 mango peeled and chopped
  • 1 roma tomato chopped
  • 1 avocado pitted and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chipotle in adobo from canned chipotle chilies
  • 1 glove garlic minced or grated
  • 1/2 lime juiced
  • 1/4 cup freshly chopped cilantro
  • 1 pinch of salt and pepper


  • In a small bowl combine the paprika, chipotle chile powder, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano and a pinch of salt and pepper. Rub the Mahi Mahi all over with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and then rub all of the spice mixture on the fish. Set aside.
  • In a bowl mix the chopped mango, chopped roma tomato, chopped avocado, adobo sauce, garlic, lime juice, cilantro, salt and pepper. Toss well. Note that this will keep in fridge for up to 3 days.
  • Heat a skillet over medium high heat. Add a tablespoon of oil. When hot, add the Mahi Mahi, flesh side down. Cook about 4-5 minutes and then flip and cook another 4-5 minutes or until crisp and mostly cooked through. Remove from the pan. Remove the skin and either flake with a fork or chop into chunks.
  • To assemble heat your tortillas either in the microwave or if you have a gas stove top, over an open flame for 10-15 seconds on either side. Lay the fish down the middle of one tortilla and then top with the Mango Salsa. Fold over and devour!

    I made these for Christmas Dinner but grilled the fish and also added a plain yogurt slaw to top with the mango salsa along with thin sliced red onions pickled earlier in the day. I also substituted smoked paprika for 1/3 of the called for paprika. The fish rub is one of the best I have tried. I really plastered it on the fish, and everyone loved it. I will make this repeatedly. The leftovers are wonderful, and the fish reheats well.

    I just made these tonight but the recipe from your cookbook and the tacos were awesome. So delicious with that balance of the spicy fish and mango. I will definitely be making these again. It was so fast and easy and looks pretty when serving.
