Grilled Mahi-Mahi Tacos

Mahi-Mahi Marinating 

          Zesty, spicy and full of flavor these fish tacos are a bite away from a fiesta. As you engage with the flavors South of the Border all of your senses will be awakened with a fragrant burst of fresh cilantro and lime, chilled crisp cole slaw, fresh pico de gallo, spicy kick of hot sauce and cooling yet zippy mayo.
These fish tacos start with a warm soft corn tortilla, grilled Mahi-mahi then marinated in cilantro and lime vinaigrette, topped with raw cole slaw mix, onion, pico de gallo, spicy mayo, and hot sauce. Anna likes to use Tabasco or Sriracha hot sauce; I love a chipotle hot sauce, which has a smoky spicy flavor. Either way these tacos are a culinary experience waiting to happen.
