Mahi Mahi Lettuce Tacos


The last 2 weeks I’ve been playing the game of “let’s see how long we can make it without grocery shopping.” Thanks to our weekly Abundant Harvest box of fruits and veggies and a semi stocked freezer, we haven’t had to shop! Although, I believe we’ve run out of meat, so tomorrow there will be a grocery shopping trip. Our last meat left in the freezer was some frozen wild caught Mahi Mahi fillets from Trader Joe’s. So I took that + a few choice fruits & veggies + leftover cheese and sour cream and am happy to say, produced a yummy taco spread! Enjoy!


Trader Joe’s Wild Caught Frozen Mahi Mahi Fillets (These were a first for us, very yummy!)
6 Large Lettuce Leaves
1 Pear
1 Slice of Yellow Onion Finely Chopped
6 Fresh Mint Leaves
10 Spinach Leaves Finely Chopped
1 Lemon Slice
1 C Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Salt, Pepper, and Sour Cream to Taste
Grapeseed Oil


Dethaw the fillets. Season with salt and pepper and oil. Cook according to the directions on the package–I chose to oven roast them which was 6 minutes on each side at 375 degrees. Once meat is done, it will be easy to pull apart to be taco meat.

While the fillets are cooking, mix together the salsa. Chop up the mint, spinach, onion, and pear. Mix together in a bowl. Squeeze lemon over the mixture.

Create tacos using the lettuce as a wrap. Fill the lettuce with the fish, salsa, sour cream, and shredded cheddar cheese.

Enjoy a healthy Mexican meal!
