Wasabi-Mango Fish Tacos Recipe

I’ve been making fish tacos about weekly for going on three years now. I buy some mild white fish when it goes on sale, grab a mango, some slaw or cabbage, cilantro and a package of corn tortillas and I am good to go. I’ve tried a TON of variations of this recipe over the years, but this one is my favorite! I can easily whip it up on the week night, and even on the coldest of winter nights, it feels tropical. Plus, the wasabi? Yeowsers! If you like the heat, you’ll love this one! (And if you don’t, just omit it and the sriracha! I won’t tell … )
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound mild white fish (cod, halibut, tilapia, etc.)
1 tablespoon cajun seasoning
1 pound shredded cabbage or broccoli slaw (if I have more time, sometimes I’ll roast this in the oven.)
1/4 cup wasabi mayo (Trader Joe’s sells this — or you can mix regular mayo with 1 tablespoon premade wasabi)
1 mango, peeled and diced
1 package small corn tortillas
1 avocado, peeled and diced
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
sriracha (optional)
1. Heat a large pan with oil over medium heat.
2. Coat fish in cajun seasoning. Cook in pan until they flake easily with a fork (about 8 to 10 minutes).
3. Meanwhile, toss cabbage or slaw with the wasabi mayo until evenly coated.
4. Assemble tacos! Corn tortilla down, followed by slaw, fish, mango, avocado, cilantro and sriracha!
5. Enjoy each bite!
Freakin’ delicious, every time. And if you want to make this Paleo, sub the corn tortillas for romaine leaves and make the mayo from scratch! For the vegetarians in the house, I have to imagine this would be wonderful with tofu, too … And for a side, refried beans are fabulous!
