Tasty Thursdays: Tequila-Lime Mahimahi Tacos

Thursday, May 17, 2012

Continuing on my wanderlust daydream to somewhere tropical, here is a recipe I found on Self for these yummy tequila-lime mahimahi tacos. The following recipe serves 4. 

  • 4 tablespoons fresh lime juice, divided
  • 3 tablespoons tequila
  • 3 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh cilantro, divided
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 lb mahimahi
  • 3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 2 3/4 teaspoons tsp honey, divided
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons tsp kosher salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • 3 cups thinly sliced red cabbage
  • 3/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 3 tablespoons 2 percent milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons tsp finely grated lime zest
  • 8 corn tortillas (6 inches each)
  • 1/2 firm-ripe avocado, thinly sliced
  • 2 limes, quartered
In a resealable plastic bag, combine 3 tbsp lime juice, tequila, 1 tbsp cilantro, garlic and cumin. Add fish, seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate, turning once, 1 hour. In a bowl, combine vinegar, oil, 2 tsp honey, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Add cabbage; toss well. In another bowl, combine sour cream, milk, zest, remaining 1 tbsp juice, remaining 3/4 tsp honey and 1/2 tsp salt. Heat grill. Remove fish from marinade; season with remaining 1/2 tsp salt and remaining 1/4 tsp pepper. Grill, turning once, until just cooked through and lightly charred, 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board; coarsely chop. Stir remaining 2 tbsp cilantro into slaw. Grill tortillas, turning once, 30 seconds per side. To assemble, spoon 1 tbsp sour cream mixture in center of each tortilla. Divide fish, slaw and avocado among tortillas. Garnish with lime wedges.
