    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Using a charcoal grill, build a fire and let it burn down until the coals are glowing red with a moderate coating of white ash(If using a gas grill, preheat to medium high). Spread the coals in an even bed.
    2. 2
      Cut the mahi-mahi into 16 equal slices.
    3. 3
      Combine the oil, lime juice, chili powder, cumin, coriander, garlic, and salt. Coat the mahi-mahi with the marinade.
    4. 4
      Grill the fish on the first side over direct heat until the flesh is firm and well marked, about 2 minutes. Turn the fish and grill until cooked through, about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes more.
    5. 5
      Grill the tortillas until they have light grill marks and are heated through, about 15 seconds on the first side. Turn the tortillas and grill them until they just start to bubble, another 15 seconds.
    6. 6
      Place 2 pieces of grilled fish on the center of each tortilla, and top with the Southwestern Slaw and chipotle pico de gallo. Add a dollop of Mexican crema or sour cream, fold in half, and serve immediately. Enjoy!

      Beautiful blend of spices and other flavors with a nice amount of tang. I used your Chipotle Pico De Gallo along with some smaller size tortillas so just adjusted the quantities a bit to suit two smaller tortillas per person which made them a great meal in itself.

      These were wonderful, I'd like them a little spicier. Maybe I'll put a serano in the marinade next time :) Thanks!!

      Outstanding fish tacos! I found a similar recipe from an online video. It basically halved your recipe, using 1/2 tsp. more garlic and garlic. I used tilapia and the whole family enjoyed (and two of them dislike fish!). The recipe used shredded lettuce instead of cole slaw and that was delicious, too. The grilled tortillas were a nice touch. I served with buttered corn and cooked black beans. I am going to try and make these regularly. It's a great way to get "non-fish" eaters to partake! Thanks Sharon, for posting. Roxygirl
