You will love these Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa! Corn tortillas filled with flaky white fish and topped with fresh mango and avocado salsa. (Thanks to ALDI for sponsoring this post!)
Ever since The Lego Movie came out, my kids are obsessed with the term “Taco Tuesday”. They want tacos every Tuesday. My 4 and 5 year old boys are constantly asking me, “is it Taco Tuesday today?” Ha! I tried to come up with different versions of tacos like, roasted vegetable tacos, chicken tacos, or my favorite ground beef tacos but now I can add fish tacos to the list, too!
When ALDI approached me to help them with their fun ALDI Summer Road Trip campaign, they asked me what dishes represented California the most. Since we live right next to the ocean, FISH came to my mind! Fish tacos are all over the place here. So are mangoes and avocados. Together they make a great pair thus Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa was born. 🙂
My dad is obsessed with fish. He loves the stuff. In fact, my go-to gift for him is a Red Lobster gift card. He loves it all. My mom didn’t prepare fish a whole lot while I was growing up and I have to admit that I don’t use fish as much as I use other meats like chicken. It can be pricey, especially for a family.
One thing I love about ALDI is the price of their groceries. They have tilapia, halibut and lots of other fish for a fraction of the cost of most grocery stores. Seriously. These fish tacos use thin filets of meat and a little goes a long way.
This recipe has easy preparation and is easy clean up. I just thawed out my frozen filets and then placed them on a foil lined baking sheet. Season with some salt, lemon pepper and a squeeze of lemon and broil. They hardly take any time to cook and you can toss that foil when you’re done.
Mix up your green onions, avocados, mangoes, jalapeños, cilantro, cumin and salt & pepper. Heat up a few tortillas on a frying pan. When the fish is done, shred it up and place on tortillas and top with salsa. The flaky fish goes perfectly with the spicy/sweet salsa. It’s Taco Tuesday bliss!
I was so excited when ALDI asked me to develop recipes for their ALDI Summer Road Trip campaign! I was able to visit their test kitchen in Chicago a few months ago and fell in love with the store. They’re coming out to California very soon and I couldn’t be happier!
This road trip they’re doing is so cool. Let me explain a little about it. It’s a Virtual Road Trip to discover regional flavors and cuisines from your local ALDI.
