Seared Ahi Tacos with Mango Salsa Recipe

One of our favorite meals is fish tacos.

The possibilities are endless with them because there are so many different fishes and so many different marinades. One of our favorites is seared ahi. If you don’t like rare ahi, you can also cook this more well done (that’s how we make it for the little presidents). This recipe screams summer, but we enjoy it all year round. I can’t wait till it’s cool enough to sit outside on a cool fall evening and enjoy this recipe.

    Looking forward to trying this recipe. I’m allergic to mango. Any suggestions for what I could substitute? Pineapple?

    Thanks! 🙂

      Hey Heather! I would try pineapple or just a basic salsa or pico de gallo! We have done it sans the mango salsa with just either of those two salsas and they are still delish! Xo!
