Whenever we go down to Carlsbad, I literally eat at Haggo's Tacos every day. If you live in the Carlsbad or Encinitas area, and you haven't been, then I highly recommend going. They are an organic taco shop, and it is so good! I usually get the fish tacos or the shrimp tacos, but I've had almost everything on their menu and it's all amazing.

So, I decided to make my own version of my favorite tacos that I get there. These Mahi Mahi Street Tacos are made with wild caught Mahi Mahi that’s really easy to cook in your skillet! I make a homemade slaw with carrots, red onion, cilantro, sour cream, and lime.

I top these simple Mahi Mahi Street Tacos with fresh mango, Homemade Salsa, and avocado for a light and simple taco that you’ll want to make every Taco Tuesday!
