Our spice cabinet is chock full, and although some spices see more use more than others our quick taco seasoning mix goes into a variety of dishes and makes it easy to whip up these fish tacos in a jiffy. Even on a busy weeknight, we can literally have dinner on the table in about 15 minutes which almost makes up for not having a good taco truck anywhere nearby.
We keep a jar of taco seasoning mixed up and ready to go, all we have to do is toss some mahi mahi or other firm white fish chunks in it, sauté, and it’s ready to serve. Try our mix or come up with your own using your favorite Mexican flavors. Start with chili powder, cumin, garlic, and chipotle pepper powder (or dried chipotle peppers if you find them in a store), and then play around with amounts and other ingredients until you have a flavor profile you like.
