Welcome spring with this tasty recipe for fish tacos

Published on April 4th, 2014 | by Whitney Packebush

Nothing says spring like bright, fresh flavors. My fish tacos with mango salsa and chipotle aioli (that’s just a fancy way of saying “flavored mayonnaise”) combines so many flavors and textures, you might think it’s summer!

Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa

Makes 10 – 12 tacos

Total time: 40 minutes

For Chipotle Aioli

2/3 cup low-fat mayonnaise

1 (8 ounce) container Greek yogurt

3 Tbsp. lemon juice

1 garlic clove, grated

3 Tbsp. chipotle sauce

Salt, to taste

Combine and refrigerate.

For Mango Salsa

1 bell pepper, diced

1 red onion, diced

1 jalapeno pepper, deseeded and diced (optional)

3 mangos, peeled and diced

¼ cup chopped cilantro

2 garlic cloves, minced

Juice of 1 lime

Salt, to taste

Combine and refrigerate.

For Tacos

1 pound cod or tilapia

4 Tbsp. fresh lime juice

2 Tbsp. vegetable oil

10 – 12 tortillas

2 cups shredded cabbage

Marinate fish in lime juice and vegetable oil in a glass dish for 15-30 minutes. Remove fish from marinade and grill or saute over medium-high heat until fish flakes easily with a fork. Let fish cool slightly, then flake into bite-sized chunks. Warm tortillas in the microwave for 5-10 seconds, then top with fish, aioli, mango salsa and cabbage.
