This recipe for healthy Fish Tacos peaked my interest due to the marinated fish, the pickled vegetables, and the avocado & mango salsa. I'm not even a fan of mangoes, but thought I would give it a try. The ingredients may look lengthy, but the steps are broken up into 3 easy segments, beginning with pickling radishes and red onion in red wine vinegar, sugar, and chili powder.
Once they have boiled on the stove, the pickled pink vegetables rest until the other ingredients are ready. The next step in the process is to marinate the fish. I used halibut since we had that on hand. The fish sits in a simple mixture of lime juice, chili powder, and garlic. The recipe calls for a 10 minute marinade, which is probably just about right. Unfortunately, I completely misjudged when Mark was going to be home, so my poor halibut bathed in the acidic marinade for too long.
