  • 6 Tacos



1lb Mahi Mahi

8 Small whole wheat flour tortillas

1 Medium red onion

1/4 cup Crumbled Cheddar

1/2 tsp Sea salt & coarse black peppercorn

1 Tbsp Olive oil

Fresh cilantro


3/4 cup Ketchup

1/3 cup Dark or Light Brown Sugar (I prefer dark)

2 Tbsp

1 Tbsp White vinegar

2 tsp Worcestershire sauce


On cutting board dice mahi mahi into 1" cubes, then lightly season with salt & pepper.

In a large bowl mix the sauce, using a whisk to thoroughly combine all ingredients until smooth. Add the seasoned mahi mahi to sauce and toss to evenly coat, then set aside in refrigerator until needed.

Wipe down cutting board before slicing red onion into thin strips. Next, add olive oil to preheated skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté onions until lightly caramelized, ~10 minutes. Once cooked transfer to a paper towel lined bowl to cool.

While onions cook, crumble cheese and heat the tortillas as directed on the package. I simply pop them on a plate covered with a moist paper towel in the microwave for about 1 min 30 sec.

In the same skillet as the onions (you removed them already, right?) cook marinated mahi mahi over medium heat until cooked through, ~8 minutes.

Chop cilantro

Once cooked begin to build the tacos with a layer of fish, onions, cheddar and cilantro.

When adding marinated mahi mahi, do not feel obligated to add all of the sauce to the skillet. You can simply spoon out the pieces into the skillet. Be sure that you do not cross contaminate your foods on your cutting board. I highly recommend these flexible cutting boards You get one for fish, vegetables, cheese, meat, carving and poultry. Keeping your kitchen safe is a top priority for a healthy family.
