With summer right around the corner I am craving these Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa more than ever! There’s something about this combination that screams summer nights outside with a margarita in my hand, extra salt. A sunny 80 degree day with my shades on is just about what I need in my life. This dish makes me think I’m at the beach with sand between my toes. We hope it gives you that same feeling too!

We love both of these recipes mixed together on some corn tortillas. When we make the mango salsa, we usually double the recipe so we can have some chips and mango salsa while we cook. The golden rule is to make the salsa at least an hour before you want to eat it so the lime juice has a chance to do its work. Then grab that bag of corn chips and dig in! I mean who doesn’t eat a snack while they cook.

But don’t eat all the salsa otherwise you can’t use it for these Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa! It happens to the best of us though. Maybe make some of our  guacamole as well if you’re still in the taco mood and snack on that. Even top the  guac on top of the tacos, extra lime juice too!

Any white fish will due for this dish but we prefer the tilapia and keep the fish fairly plain. The flavor is really from the salsa on this one. Now a mahi mahi taco, definitely spice that up a bit more! We pan fried this as tilapia tends to pull apart very easily. However if you have a grill pan such as this one, go for it! Add it to the grill so you can get that smokey flavor.

From our kitchen to yours, cheers!
