Heat outdoor grill or nonstick grill pan to medium-high heat. Season the fillets with salt and pepper and grill until cooked through, about 8 minutes a side. Remove from the grill and let rest.

Combine the ginger, cilantro, onion, jalapeño, ½ teaspoon salt, red wine vinegar, tomatoes, and sugar in a bowl and let rest for at least 10 minutes.

Chop up, or flake the grilled seabass and distribute 2-ounce portions into each of the mini taco shells. Add a tablespoon of the salsa on top and garnish with the extra jalapeño, cilantro, red onion, and lime wedges.
