Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 18 minutes
Servings: 5 servings



  • 1 lb Mahi Mahi fillets
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • Cajun Blackened Seasoning of your choice


  • 3 cups coleslaw mix
  • 1/2 cup 0% Fat Greek yogurt substitute mayonnaise or light mayo if preferred
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar


  • 10 Small corn tortillas or flour (if preferred) and
  • Optional toppings: Baja sauce, Chipotle dressing, Tomatillo salsa, sour cream, shredded cheese, lime wedges, jalapeno slices, avocado slices, chopped cilantro, or guacamole


  • Rinse fish fillets and pat dry. Set aside.
  • Sprinkle Blackened seasoning on both sides of your mahi mahi and rub in so it thoroughly covers each fillet.
  • Measure butter into a sauté pan and place on medium heat. Once butter has fully melted, add fish fillets and fry on each side for 3-4 minutes.
  • Once the mahi mahi is flaky and internal temperature has reached 137°F, it is done. Keep in mind that some fillets may cook slower or faster depending on thickness
  • Allow fillets to rest and make your slaw. Combine coleslaw mix, Greek yogurt, salt, pepper and white wine vinegar. Mix until ingredients are well incorporated. (*Tip: if you like sweeter coleslaw, add some honey)!
  • Assemble tacos and add desired toppings. Enjoy! (*Tip: I like to heat my tortillas on a frying pan to give them some warmth and color, it takes a little extra time but is very tasty. You can also wrap them in damp paper towels and microwave for 30 seconds to soften them up a bit)!


Mahi Mahi: you can purchase mahi mahi at most fish markets and grocery stores! 
Coleslaw mix: buy pre-bagged, pre-shredded coleslaw mix in the produce section at the grocery store. You can also make your own if you prefer by thinly slicing cabbage, red cabbage and carrots. 
Greek yogurt: substitute mayonnaise or light mayo if preferred (you can also use half mayo and half Greek yogurt). 
General: I highly recommend making a sauce or dressing for a zesty topper. Try a batch of homemade Baja sauce or even some chipotle dressing to kick up your taco meal anytime!
