My husband hates cooked fish, he only eats sushi , raw fish, he says that he hates the fish smells when you cook a fish. In this recipe I used light mayo, we put some carrots and store bought pico de gallo. I also used frozen wild Mahi mahi and did my own chile powder with oregano, cumin, red pepper flakes and turmeric blended in the food processor. My husband loved and said that we should have at least once a week...... :) great one ! Thank you!
First Mahi just might be my favorite fish for making fish tacos though I usually prefer them grilled or w/o breading. That said I can tell by the ingredients that these will be fantastic and I'm going to make them tomorrow for supper. From 9 to well into their 90's my whole family loves Fish Tacos even my Semi-Vegetarian Mom won't say no to them.
