"A warm, flavorful dish filled with mahi-mahi, fresh fruit and an exotic ginger-lime dressing. Unique, yet tasteful, this recipe is inspired by the fresh seafood recipes in Mexico and Central America. I serve chips and salsa on the side." — Fiestaqueen

Wonderful recipe! I put red onions into the salsa that added a nice kick, as well as a second jalapeño. The dressing was delicious...some extra cumin gives it a some good spice. This was fast and easy to make, and everyone loved it.
I came to the conclusion that my family does not like fish tacos. We like mahi mahi but I don't think that the salsa or the sour cream sauce went with the fish. I made the recipe exactly as followed. We ended up eating the fish plain and used the salsa with corn chips (after adding more jalapeno to add some heat and cut down on the sweetness). All said and done we will probably not be making this again.
I just got back from a trip to Hawaii and was craving a fish taco like the one I had at a restaurant there. This comes VERY close...but without the view of the ocean! I even used a frozen mix of pineapple, mango, and papaya and it turned out lovely. Also, I didn't have mahi mahi, so used tilapia instead. This is a softer fish -- it tasted good, but the mahi mahi would have held up better. Still, a great tropical meal.
I absolutely loved this, and it's super easy! I didn't have time to make fresh salsa, so I used a good quality salsa and just added fresh mango. It was quite good.
Very good and tasty. Next time though I might do without the s.c sauce. Was sort of bitter compared to the rest of the taco...but overall...excellent
The ginger lime dressing is delicious, and could go with just about any fish taco, not just mahi mahi. I replaced the salsa recipe with my own, because I prefer tomatoes to avacadoes. Also, shredded cheese on the tacos is a good compliment. I would recommend adding shredded lettuce, beans, or rice to the taco in order to give it body. Even with liberal servings, just the fish and the topping doesn't do it for us.
The family ooo-ed and ahhh-ed over this one and claimed the recipe was a keeper! The flavors blend nicely: it's just the right amount of sweet, creamy, savory, and heat. I was even complimented on how the textures blended so well. The only complaint was that the ginger sauce ran out too soon. Next time I'd probably make 4 times as much, since we have some big eaters here. This would probably also be great with pork or chicken too!!
So good! I added a lot of extra ginger and used store bought mango salsa since I already had it. The sour cream sauce is awesome.
