Posted On October 6, 2012
For the past several months you might have noticed that most if not all of the recipes that I have posted here are desserts that's why for a change let me share to you this really delish, light and refreshing recipe from called Achiote Grilled Fish Tacos. I swear, this is something that I really wanna try.

1 tablespoon achiote powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1 garlic clove, minced
1 lime, juiced
2 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
3 (4 ounce) mahi-mahi fillets
salt and pepper to taste

Broccoli slaw:
14 ounces (store bought) broccoli slaw
1/2 cup (nonfat) Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 lemon, zested and juiced
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
salt and pepper to taste

Mango salsa:
2 mangos, diced
1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
2 tablespoons diced red bell pepper
2 tablespoons diced red onion
2 tablespoons minced cilantro
1 lime, juiced
salt and pepper to taste

4 (5 inch) flour tortillas, lightly grilled
garnishes: cotija cheese, crumbled and lime wedges
1. Preheat a grill or grill pan on medium-high heat.

2. For the mahi-mahi: Place achiote powder, cumin, garlic, and lime juice in a bowl and whisk together. While whisking, add oil until fully incorporated. Place fillets in a shallow dish; pour marinade over fillets, flipping each over to ensure it’s fully coated. Allow fish to marinate for about 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and grill on each side for about 3 to 4 minutes. Gently flake fish into large chunks. Set aside until ready to use.

3. For the broccoli slaw: Place broccoli slaw in a medium mixing bowl. In a small mixing bowl, add the remaining ingredients and whisk together. Pour yogurt sauce over the slaw and season with salt and pepper. Toss together until the slaw is completely coated. Set aside until ready to use.

4. For mango salsa: Place all ingredients into a small mixing bowl and toss together. Season with salt and pepper.

5. To assemble and serve: Place about 4 ounces of flaked mahi-mahi in each tortilla. Top with a scoop of broccoli slaw followed by the mango salsa. Finish with a sprinkle of cotija cheese and serve with lime wedges. [myhabitfix /]
