Easy grilled mahi fish taco recipe seasoned with cumin & coriander; and served with tangy slaw, black beans, creamy fiesta ranch, pico de gallo, & avocado.

Mahi-Mahi, PIco de Gallo, Avocado, Cabbage

Fish taco night is a family favorite around house. Everyone gets really excited. I usually make up a taco bar with all the toppings. I think this is why the kids especially like taco night. They love being able to make their food just how they like it. I usually use tilapia for fish tacos, but it’s fun to switch things up. These grilled mahi-mahi fish tacos are extra special.

Cumin, Coriander, and Mahi Fillets

Season the Mahi-Mahi

Prepping the mahi fillets is really simple. In a bowl combine, ground cumin, ground coriander and salt. Brush the fillets with olive oil and sprinkle with the spice mix. Cumin and coriander are both warm spices that also give the fish some earthy and citrusy flavor. Pre-heat the indoor or outdoor grill. Grilled fish tacos taste great with refried black beans. This recipe is filled with flavor from pico de gallo juice. Start the beans simmering over medium-low heat while the grill is pre-heating.

Mahi-Mahi Fillets

Grill the Mahi

Once your grill is hot, it’s time to start grilling the mahi. On the indoor grill or grill pan, cook the fillets about 6 minutes per side over medium heat. Outdoor grills usually get hotter, so the fish will cook even faster. The fish is ready to turn over when it lifts easily from the grate. If it doesn’t, check it again after 20-30 seconds. Grill the mahi-mahi until it flakes easily with a fork.

Grilled Mahi Fillets, Fiesta Ranch and Coleslaw

Whip Up Some Fiesta Ranch Sauce

A great fish taco always has a delicious creamy sauce. This one is super easy and tasty too. While the fish is grilling, whisk together ranch dressing and some salsa in a bowl. Voilà, creamy fiesta ranch. You can add some heat too if you use medium or hot salsa. This is also a good time to make up the Cilantro Lime Coleslaw. Mix together chopped cabbage with cilantro, lime juice, and mayonnaise (Recipe Here).

Low-Carb Serving Options

Let’s talk about low-carb serving options. The kids love flour tortillas, so that’s what I buy them. My husband and I, however, are always looking for ways to cut out the carbs. There are some great low-carb tortilla options with only 3-5 grams of net carbs. If you want to keep the meal grain-free try cheese wraps (basically tortillas made only of cheese) or a big taco salad. We enjoy all these options.
