Grilled Mahi Street Tacos With A Citrus Vinaigrette

Grilled Mahi Street Tacos with a Citrus Vinaigrette

Mahi is not only a beautiful fish, they are also rather tasty! In restaurants you tend to see “Mahi Mahi” as a title of small plated entree or an appetizer, luckily Ingman Marine is here to broaden your horizons. Fish taco’s are generally made with a cheaper fish, like Tilapia. However, in this recipe we will be using Mahi (a.k.a Dolphinfish, Dorado) to class these tacos up a bit. This recipe will teach you how to make Grilled Mahi Tacos with a tangy Citrus Vinaigrette to drizzle on top.


Mahi Mahi Tacos

4 (8oz) Mahi Fillets
2 Tablespoons Oil (Whichever you like best)
16 Mini “Street” Taco Tortillas
Salt and Pepper
Citrus Vinaigrette (Store Bought or Find Homemade Recipe Below)

Citrus Vinaigrette

1/2 Cup Canola Oil
1 1/2 Teaspoons Honey
3/4 cup Orange Juice
1/4 cup Lime Juice
1 cup Chopped Fresh Basil
1 cup Chopped Fresh Cilantro
1 Teaspoon Sea Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Ground Pepper


Prep: 20 min
Cook: 20 min
16 Tacos
Preheat your grill to medium heat.
Drizzle the oil over the fillets, making sure to fully coat the fish. Season with the salt & pepper.
Grill each fillet for 3 – 4 minutes per side.
Now remove the Mahi from the grill and drizzle with the Citrus Vinaigrette. (If you are using our homemade recipe you can find the instructions below)
Let the fish rest for approx. 5-10 minutes and then flake the fillets apart with a fork.
Fill each tortilla with some of the mahi and whatever other toppings you may want.

For the Citrus Vinaigrette:

Combine all of the Citrus Vinaigrette ingredients in a blender and blend for 1 minute
Mahi Street Taco Recipe


Fish tacos always pair very well with a fruit salsa or chutney as a topper. Lucky for you we also happen to have a Mango Salsa recipe on hand. The mango will accent the Citrus Vinaigrette and react with the Mahi’s mild flavor.
