Great late-summer meal... enjoy it on your deck or patio with Habanero Salsa and a cold beer.

"I made these, but I broiled the mahi mahi. The fish cooked well, and the "marinade," which I would consider more of a sauce that I left on it while broiling, was pretty good, too. Unfortunately, the mahi mahi had a lot of bones in it, so it was too difficult to really enjoy. From what I was able to eat, it was very good, and I'd try it again without the fish with bones."

Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Place fish in a medium-size dish. Whisk together the oil, lime juice, ancho, jalapeno and cilantro, and pour over the fish. Let marinate for 15 to 20 minutes.

Remove the fish from the marinade and place onto a hot grill, flesh side down. Grill the fish for 4 minutes on the first side, then flip for 30 seconds and remove. Let rest for 5 minutes, then flake the fish with a fork.

Place the tortillas on the grill and grill for 20 seconds. Divide the fish among the tortillas and garnish with any or all of the garnishes.

A little bland. I'll try making it again but a bit differently.

This is a complete copy from Bobby Flay's recipe!! Can't believe you would go to dish network & steal it from there. At least give him the credit or say compliments of. That was wrong on many levels.

I loved it. I just added more seasonings and made a Cilantro Crema. I used Tilapia. Thank you for this recipe.

These were a little bland. We tried them corn tortillas but didn't like them that way either.

Excellent recipe! I used cod and skipped the marinade, opting to skillet cook the fish with the marinade mixture instead. Turned out great!

Easy and delicious. I added additional lime juice to the cabbage and onions and let it marinate for 30 mins.

Gross fishy taste!

Excellent recipe. I have very little cooking skills and this came together really well. I added a spread of refried pinto beans on the tortilla under the fish. Oh boy that was perfect! It balanced out nicely the spices – especially since my ancho chili powder was a little heavy on the spicy side.
