Super Quick Blackened Fish Tacos with Mango


by Sil Pancho



This is what I’d call a serious “shortcut recipe” with a premixed seasoning and fish that cooks in less than 10 minutes. We often add mango to our fish tacos, but this is the first time I’ve tried it with blackened fish (a family favorite), and let me tell you … it is a winning combination!

I love it when something so simple is so incredibly tasty and wholesome. This is definitely going to be the new way we do fish tacos for the foreseeable future (because it’s no secret how I like to switch things up whenever I can)! What’s your favorite way to make fish tacos?

Before I jump into the recipe let’s discuss how to cut a mango, since I know sometimes it can be a bit tricky or intimidating. I am not saying this is the “right” way, but this is my way. Here’s what to do …

How To Cut A Mango

  • First, peel the skin off the outside of a ripe (slightly soft) mango with a carrot peeler.
  • Second, position the mango upright and slice right down the middle with one of these handy, dandy tools (pictured).
  • Third, lay the two pieces without the seed flat on a cutting board and dice away.
  • Fourth, and never forget this step, pick up the seed and nibble off the bits that stayed intact!

Servings: 4

  • 1 pound white fish (such as redfish or snapper, no skin), cut into small 1″ to 2″ chunks
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons Blackened Redfish Magic Seasoning (sold on Amazon and other grocery stores) or similar
  • 1 mango peeled and cut into thin slices

For Serving

  • 4 corn tortillas
  • 12 ounces cheese (crumbled queso fresco or shredded Monterey Jack)
  • sour cream
  • lime wedges
  • cilantro
  • Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Put the chopped fish in a shallow bowl, pour the melted butter over top, and toss around to coat. Sprinkle in the seasoning and toss again until well-coated.

  • Place the seasoned fish pieces into the hot skillet and cook until the fish starts to become flaky and is no longer transparent on the bottom, 3 to 4 minutes. Carefully flip over the pieces and cook until opaque and flaky all the way through, another couple minutes.

  • Serve immediately with the tortillas, mango, and other toppings.
