My son was in preschool when his teacher asked the class to tell her one thing that would make the world a better place. Most kids said more hugs, being outside, more puppies…my son said more tacos! I was so proud.
In honor of my son’s wish to improve the world with delicious food, here’s a quick and easy, build it yourself recipe for halibut tacos with mango salsa. You can substitute different fish, rockfish is tasty, and the toppings can be adjusted for your taste. Some recipes are classic and require strict adherence, some are jazz and just require an appetite. These tacos are Jazz – make them your own, and make them often.
4 halibut filets
1/2 tsp cumin, coriander, chili powder
2 tbs olive or coconut oil
lime, cilantro, green onion
salt & pepper
corn or flour tortillas
Season halibut filets with cumin, coriander, and chili powder spices, and salt to taste. Sauté filets in oil at medium low heat until cooked through, about 2-3 minutes per side.
While halibut is sautéing, dice mango, and chop cilantro and green onion. Mix mango, cilantro and green onion with juice of one lime. Season mixture with salt and pepper to taste.
Once halibut is cooked through, remove from pan, place in tortilla, top with salsa, eat, repeat.
If you’re feeling fancy, adding quick-pickled red onion to the taco is a good choice.
