Combine first 6 ingredients, and sprinkle over all surfaces of the fish. Grill fish, skin side up, on lightly oiled grates over medium-high heat (350° to 400°) for 4 minutes. Turn fish over, and grill 4 minutes or until fish becomes opaque and begins to flake. Remove skin, and break fish into chunks.
Lightly coat tortillas with cooking spray, and grill 1 to 2 minutes each side.
Fill each tortilla with fish and top with Nectarine-Avocado Salsa and Zesty Sour Cream. Serve immediately.
This recipe was VERY good and I'll definitely make it again. I subbed mango for the nectarines and flour for the corn tortillas. Someone below said it was easy and although the recipe is straight forward (not a lot of steps), all the chopping takes some time. Love the fresh ingredients and light combination though.
If you've never made mahi mahi or fish tacos, this is a must-try!
This recipe is delicious, but if you at all concerned about sodium intake (or are cooking for someone who is), I would certainly reduce the amount of salt in the fish rub. Based on 4 servings, this recipe has 50 percent of the recommended daily max for sodium JUST FROM SALT, not considering sodium in other ingredients. This is a pretty healthy meal if you cut the salt in the fish rub down to 1/4 tsp or so.
I made this recipe last night for my husband and he gave this a 10++ which never happens. I plan to make this meal every week this summer. I used Oranges in place of nectarines in the salsa which lifted the taste. I also used a Serrano chili in place of Jalapeno in the salsa which made it more spicy. I also used for the Zesty Sour cream, chili sauce. It was excellent! I served a dry Argentinian Torrontes; intense floral note and citrus aromas similar to a Voigner and dry crisp taste of Sauvignon blanc which went very well with this meal. I also served a white long grain rice, just add crushed garlic, tumeric and bay leaf, bring to boil, reduce and simmer til done; take out bay leaf and garlic; it's easy and excellent in flavor.
I used the same spices and then grilled the mahi and just ate the filet (without the taco). I also used mango and avocado for the salsa and it was so tasty! Maybe I'll try the tacos next, I was just trying to avoid the calories of the tortillas.
