Mahi Mahi Soft Tacos are an easy meal to prepare. The mild flavor of the Mahi Mahi is enhanced with the pineapple salsa. I find that broiling the Mahi Mahi, shredding it and mixing it with the pineapple salsa is the easiest for eating and gives the best blend of flavors.
I have tried putting a one-inch thick slick of Mahi Mahi on the taco, but it seems more difficult to eat than when the fish is shredded.
I've also tried shredding the Mahi Mahi and placing the salsa on the side. This version is easier to eat than when the Mahi Mahi is sliced. When you bite into this method, sometimes you get more Mahi Mahi than salsa, or vice versa. I find that you don't get the blend of flavors like you do when the Mahi Mahi and salsa are mixed together.
If you prefer a slice of Mahi Mahi on your taco, skip the step of shredding and mixing with the salsa.
The Mahi Mahi is marinated for 30-minutes then broiled. I wouldn't marinate it for much longer because of the acid in the marinade. Once the fish is thoroughly cooked, shred it and mix with some pineapple salsa. Oh so, good!
You could substitute another white fish, like cod, for the Mahi Mahi, if you prefer.
I hope you enjoy the Mahi Mahi Soft Tacos!
