Recipe by FoodieFanatic

Grilled Mahi Mahi Tacos With Red Cabbage Slaw, Tomato And Avocado Salsa And Pineapple Hot Sauce is the whole name for this lovely recipe. Created by Bobby Flay for a wedding on FoodNetwork, and it was a big hit with all the guests at the wedding. I wanted to share this lovely recipe with you all. It took me about 3 hrs. to make this dish, but it is well worth it! Be careful when making the Charred Pineapple-Habanero Hot Sauce using the the habanero chiles, as it is HOT with 2! I would suggest only 1 if you don't like real hot and spicy.

It took us a lot of prep time as well.
Loved the pineapple habenero salsa.
