Fish Tacos

Once upon a time, Lauren didn't even eat fish. After my dad made me scallops and I started experimenting with them myself and eating shrimp.

My husband loves fish, therefore, I should start to make fish and learn to love more fish. Mahi Mahi was on sale so I bought it. Fish tacos just feel like a quintessential summer dish. Making them was super easy and I surprisingly gobbled it up! My husband loved them too!

So I guess I have learned that I should try new things in the kitchen outside of my comfort zone more often. My husband surprised me on our anniversary making salmon. I liked it too! It was soft (I did have to have him eat the part near the skin, it was a little less soft and I didn't like that texture.) But yeah, anyways, non-fish lovers, TRY THIS!


1 (12 ounce) bag of mahi mahi
1 teaspoon of paprika
1 teaspoon of cumin
1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon of red chili powder
1 teaspoon of black pepper
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 tablespoon of garlic powder
1 tablespoon of onion powder
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
your favorite taco toppings such as cheese, lettuce, salsa, or guacamole
steamed corn tortillas


Combine all the dry spices to create a rub for the mahi mahi. Coat all sides of the fish with the rub and allow to sit for 15-20 minutes.

Heat a small amount of oil in a pan and add the fish fillets. Cook until opaque (it is hard to see) and firm to touch. This will be about 4 minutes each side.

Then use a fork to flake the fish. Then build your tacos and enjoy!

Do you have any foods you eat now that you never liked?
