For the Mahi Mahi:

  • 4 Mahi Mahi fillets
  • 1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped macadamia nuts
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 10-12 corn tortillas

For the Mango-Habanero Pico de Gallo:

  • 1 large green tomato, diced
  • 1 large red tomato, diced
  • 1 large mango, peeled and diced
  • 1 habanero pepper, finely diced
  • 1/4 poblano pepper, finely diced
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Juice of 6 limes


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Prepare the Mahi Mahi:
    • Set up a breading station with one bowl for beaten eggs and another for a mixture of Panko breadcrumbs, coconut flakes, and finely chopped macadamia nuts.
    • Dip each Mahi Mahi fillet first in the egg, then in the breadcrumb mixture, ensuring it is well coated.
    • Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and repeat with all fillets.
    • Bake for 22 minutes or until the coating is golden and crispy.
  3. Make the Mango-Habanero Pico de Gallo:
    • In a medium bowl, combine diced green and red tomatoes, mango, habanero, and poblano peppers.
    • Add the juice of 5 limes, apple cider vinegar, honey, and chopped cilantro. Mix thoroughly to combine.
  4. Warm the Tortillas:
    • Lightly char each tortilla on an open flame on the stove, being careful to slightly crisp the edges without burning.
  5. Assemble the Tacos:
    • Once the Mahi Mahi is cooked and slightly cooled, chop it into bite-sized pieces.
    • Load each tortilla with a generous portion of fish, top with Mango-Habanero Pico de Gallo, and squeeze extra lime juice over the top if desired.

Serve these crispy Mahi Mahi tacos with additional lime wedges and enjoy the burst of tropical flavors with each bite!
