These mahi mahi fish tacos are perfect for vegetarians craving Spanish cuisine.


  • ½ teaspoon table salt, or to taste
  • 1 pount mahi mahi fillet, rinsed and patted dry
  • 1 ½ tablespoon ginger root, fresh, finely minced
  • 1/3 cup fresh lime juice
  • ½ tablespoon dark brown sugar, packed

  • 8 small corn tortillas
  • 8 sprays cooking spray
  • 2 cups lettuce, any type, shredded*
  • ½ cup peach or mango salsa
  • 1 medium lime, cut into 4 wedges


Rub salt into fish; set aside.

In a glass or ceramic baking dish, combine ginger, lime juice, sugar, scallions, and cilantro; mix well. Add fish; turn to coat. Cover fish and marinate in refrigerator for 20–30 minutes.

Preheat broiler to high. (If desired, line a broiler pan with aluminum foil for easy clean up.)

Remove fish from marinade and place on broiler pan; brush with marinade. Broil for 6 minutes; flip fish and brush with marinade again. Cook until fish is no longer translucent in middle, about 5–7 minutes more depending on thickness of fish. Remove fish immediately; cut into 8 large pieces.

Divide fish, lettuce and salsa among tortillas; fold in half and serve with lime. Yields 2 tacos per serving.
