INGREDIENTS:  1 small red onion peeled and diced, 1 mango (peeled, pitted and cubed), 1 avocado (peeled pitted and cubed), 2 limes, 2 striper filets, fresh cilantro chopped, salt/pepper, canola oil, blackening spice, flour tortillas, shredded napa cabbage

DIRECTIONS:  Combine red onion, mango, avocado, juice from lime, cilantro, salt & Phoebe Lapine_Grilled Fish Tacos with Mango Salad_HiRespepper in mixing bowl. Coat saute’ pan with oil, dust the filets with blackening season and saute’ until done, approximately five to seven minutes per side.  Warm tortilla shells in oil sprayed pan for one minute per side or in microwave under damp paper towel.   Place fish in cabbagetortilla and top with  mango-avocado salsa and shredded napa cabbage.  Squeeze lime wedge over taco and add hot sauce if desired.  Wrap and enjoy!
