Instructions

  1. This recipe is so easy, so healthy, and so delicious. Summertime to me means 1.) time to go fishing in the Florida Keys and 2.) MANGO SEASON! I’m absolutely obsessed with fresh mangoes. We have a lot of friends and neighbors that just give them to us in the summertime constantly and we take full advantage of it. If you don’t have anyone to give you any mangoes fresh from their tree you can always find them at your grocery store. When buying mangoes, make sure that they are firm, but give a little. You don’t want a rock hard mango. Also, smell them! If they smell like a delicious sweet mango, chances are they’re going to taste it too. No smell = not ripe yet. Ok, let’s get cooking. First thing you want to do is make your mango salsa. Add the chopped mango, jalapeno, cilantro, and lime and mix to combine. You don’t even need to season it! Get a bowl ready with your shredded red cabbage. You can either buy it bagged already shredded or you can get a head of purple cabbage and thinly slice it. When I’m about ready to make the tacos I like to wrap my tortillas in foil and put them in the oven set at warm so when you’re ready to eat you have nice warm tortillas. Once those are in the oven warming up it’s time to cook the fish! I like to cook my fish on either a griddle pan, cast iron skillet, or grill. You want to make sure that it is set on high heat and you give it enough time to get scorching hot. Season your fish with the blackening spice of your choice liberally. Drizzle your pan with a little olive oil and put your fish on in a single lair. The fish will cook very fast! About 1-2 minutes on each side. Make sure you don’t overcook your fish! Now you’re ready to assemble. Put a few pieces of fish at the bottom of your tortilla, then the red cabbage, and topped off with the delicious mango salsa. You can either assemble them for everyone or you can set up a station where people can make their own. This recipe makes 4 servings, so you might want to make extra because they are just that delicious! Happy Summer eating everyone!
