Job description: Sometimes called dorado, Mahi Mahi is great grilled or baked. I use skinless fillets.

Seasoning: This homemade rub is super easy to make with chili powder, cumin, paprika, and garlic powder. For a little extra heat, add a little cayenne pepper. Can be substituted with a packet or homemade taco seasoning.

Gaskets: Fish tacos are delicate, so I prefer fresh toppings like fruit salsa. Try mango salsa, pineapple salsa, or a crispy, fresh coleslaw!

Tips for the best Mahi Mahi tacos

  • Cook until opaque. Thicker fillets will need a little more time in the oven or on the grill, thinner fillets may need less time.
  • Cook the fish skin side down first. This will help create a crispy fish and will also help prevent overcooking.
  • If using frozen fillets, thaw them before grilling or baking.
