Grilled Mahi-Mahi Fish Tacos

Grilled Mahi-Mahi Fish Tacos


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh-squeezed lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 pound fresh mahi-mahi fillet

For serving

  • Butter lettuce leaves or tortillas
  • Mango, cubed
  • Pico de Gallo
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • Cilantro
  • Shredded cabbage


  1. Mix together olive oil, lime juice, salt, cumin, garlic, and chili powder. Place the fish in a shallow dish, covering with the marinade. Coat both sides evenly and marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  2. Warm your barbecue (or grill pan, if cooking indoors) to medium-high heat (between 400 degrees and 450 degrees ). Place the fish on the grill, basting with half the remaining marinade. Grill for 3 to 3 1/2 minutes, flip to the other side, basting with the remaining marinade. Grill for an additional 3 to 3 1/2 minutes.
  3. Remove fish from grill, flaking apart and filling your tacos. Top with any desired toppings.
