Mahi Mahi, also called dorado or dolphin fish (not to be confused with dolphins), is commonly used in various culinary preparations, including tacos.

To make Mahi Mahi tacos, the fish is typically seasoned or marinated and then cooked to perfection. It is often grilled, pan-seared, or blackened to enhance its flavor. Once cooked, the Mahi Mahi is flaked into smaller pieces and used as the filling for the tacos.

The tacos themselves are usually made with corn tortillas, although flour tortillas can be used as well. The Mahi Mahi is placed inside the tortillas, and the tacos are then topped with various ingredients to add flavor and texture. Common toppings for Mahi Mahi tacos include shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, onions, cilantro, avocado slices or guacamole, and a squeeze of lime juice. Some people also add salsa, hot sauce, or a creamy sauce such as chipotle mayo or lime crema.

Mahi Mahi tacos are known for their fresh and vibrant flavors, combining the delicate taste of the fish with the complementary ingredients. They are often served as a popular seafood option in many coastal regions and are enjoyed for their lightness and versatility.
