In this mahi-mahi fish taco recipe, chili-coated fish gets a lovely crust from the hot pan. The creaminess of the avocado sauce complements the crisp crunch of the jicama, and it's all pulled together in 20 minutes.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Sprinkle fish evenly with chili powder and pepper. Heat oil in a large nonstick or cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the fish; cook until golden brown and cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate; sprinkle evenly with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Set aside.

  • Place avocado, yogurt, water, lime juice and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt in a blender; process until well combined and smooth, about 30 seconds.

  • Use a fork to flake the fish into large pieces. Top tortillas with the fish, jicama, the avocado sauce, sliced chile (or jalapeño) and cilantro. Serve immediately.
