Fish Tacos with Curried Mango & Red Peppers with Spicy Mango-Lime Aioli

Fish Tacos

Tonight on the way to pick up the kids from school, I was thinking about what to cook for dinner. The kids love the usual foods, like chicken fingers or breaded fish filets and french fries. They also love things like tacos. We have seen fish tacos (and enjoyed them at Food Truck events!) and thought the kids would love them too. And they did!

Ingredients:

  • 1 package of small flour tortillas
  • 1 box frozen fish bites (we used Jane’s)
  • 1 bag frozen mango chunks (or use 3 fresh mangos), divided
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1 large red bell pepper, chopped (or 3 baby bells)
  • 2 Tbsp Curry Powder
  • 2 limes
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise*
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp Siracha sauce (more if you like spicy foods)
  • 2 cups shredded cheese, we used cheddar but a Havarti would be great too
  • 2 cups shredded spinach

Directions:

  1. Cook fish according to manufacturer’s directions.
  2. Throw 3/4 cup frozen mango chunks into blender and puree. Squeeze in 1-1/2 of limes and 1/2 of lemon into blender. Add mayonnaise*, black pepper, garlic powder and Siracha and blend until smooth. If necessary, toss in a splash of cold water to liquefy aioli. Set aside.**I used mayonnaise for the sake of time tonight, but if you prefer to make a true aioli, you can use two egg yolks, then slowly drizzle in 3/4 cup of oil while blender is running.**
  3. Toss remaining mango chunks,1/2 of lime, curry powder, black pepper in frying pan. Cook on medium heat until mango starts to release juices. Add in onions and peppers, stir until cooked.
  4. Heat flour tortillas on plate in microwave, covered with damp paper towel until warm.
  5. Place warm tortilla on plate. Place shredded cheese on tortilla. Layer cooked fish on top of cheese. Top with curried mango and peppers. Drizzle mango-lime aioli on top.
