All you need to make Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa are some fresh from Florida grouper fillets, salt, lemon pepper, Old Bay Seasoning, garlic powder and olive oil. Fresh grouper is a lean, moist fish with a distinctive yet mild flavor, large white flakes, and a firm texture. You can also substitute another firm white fish like bass, snapper, tilapia or halibut. For the Mango Salsa, you will need fresh mangos, red and green bell peppers, a shallot, crushed pineapple, jalapenos, parsley, two cloves of garlic, lemon or lime juice, and salt and pepper.
To make the mango salsa, gather your ingredients and add the mango, red and green bell pepper, jalapeno, crushed pineapple and juice, garlic, shallots, lemon or lime juice and parsley to a large bowl and mix well. Taste and add salt and pepper if needed. The salsa can also be made 24-48 hours ahead of time to allow the flavors to develop.
To prepare your fish fillets for cooking, pat them dry with a paper towel. Then, season both sides of the fillets with salt, lemon pepper, Old Bay Seasoning, and a little garlic powder.
Place the olive oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. When the pan and oil are hot, lay the fish in the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes (depending on the thickness of the fillet) without moving it. Flip the fish and cook for another 2-3 minutes. When done the fish will be opaque all the way through and flake apart easily.
To heat the tortillas, follow the directions on the package.
To assemble Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa, place a tortilla on a plate, add some fish and spoon mango salsa over the top. Enjoy!
