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.
Seared Ahi Tacos
- 1/2-1 pound ahi filet
- In a ziplock bag mix:
- 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1/4 cup chopped green onions
- 1 teaspoon of chopped fresh ginger
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
*marinate for at least 30 minutes, flipping the bag over halfway through…do not marinate for over an hour.
Set your grill temp to 500+
seared- 2 minutes a side
well done- 5 minutes a side
Chop and mix 1 mango, 1 jalapeño, half a purple onion, lime juice (whole lime) and cilantro (handful). Season with salt and pepper.
Grill corn tortillas (a few minutes each side). Chop the ahi into small pieces and put on top of tortilla, cover with mango salsa and top with cheese and guacamole (optional). Enjoy!
Also!!!! You should definitely make a mojito or two to go with this dinner. It’s the perfect cocktail companion to this recipe!
