Spicy-Fresh Fish Taco Lettuce Wraps

Hello. Yum. New pseudo-recipe! Sister-in-law is on the Paleo Diet, and she was talking of mahi mahi lettuce tacos. She inspired me to try to create a version with my favorite ingredients.

Two fillets of mahi mahi
8-10 large leaves of lettuce
Half white onion, diced
Bunch of cilantro, chopped
1 roasted red pepper, finely diced
1/2 spiced tomato, finely diced
Canned jalapenos to taste, finely diced
1 egg white
1 ripe avacado
Chili and Garlic Olive Oil (pick an appealing flavor to you!)
Cayenne pepper, to taste
Cumin, to taste
Salt and Pepper, to taste

  1. Marinate the mahi mahi fillets in flavored olive oil.
  2. Dice the marinated mahi mahi and put into a bowl.
  3. Sweat the onions in the flavored olive oil. 
  4. Combine diced mahi mahi, sweated onion, cilantro, red pepper, tomoato, jalepeno, egg white, cayenne, cumin, and salt and pepper in a small bowl. Mix with your hand.
  5. Heat 2 tablespoons of flavored oil in skillet. 
  6. Pack fish mixture into 8-10 "long cakes", about 5" long.
  7. Fry the cakes in the skilled for about 3 minutes per side. 
  8. Place each cake onto the center of a large lettuce leaf and top with a slice of avacado. Wrap and eat like a taco.
This is lettuce from our garden! I literally cut it off with a knife about 5 minutes before we ate it.

And what goes best with fresh fish tacos? Homemade pan fried sweet potato fries with sea salt.
