Blackened Mahi Mahi Tacos

Who doesn't love a healthy dish that is full of flavor and quick to get on the table!

I you have a cast iron skillet that you haven't used lately, this is a perfect recipe for that too.
Maybe you prefer to grill...that works too. Grill should be heated to medium high. 

Blackened Mahi Mahi Tacos                      Makes 4  6 oz servings
1 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1 1/2 tsp dark brown sugar
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp ground chili pepper
1 1/2 lbs Mahi Mahi, or another fish of your choice. 
Olive oil, or any oil of your choice. Try avocado oil sometime, it's fun to try new flavors. I try to keep the oil to about 1 1/2 Tbsp divided between the pieces very lightly brushed.

In a small bowl combine ingredients for seasoning.  Lightly coat both sides of fish with oil.
Heat oil in a skillet. Cook each side 4-5 minutes, fish should not be translucent when done, and will flake.

Serve with guacamole and pica de Gallo or your favorite salsa. I think a mango salsa would be a nice option too.

Weight watcher points are 5 points per 6 oz serving. If you choose to not brush fish with oil you can subtract 1 point per serving.

A big thanks to my daughter for this delicious recipe!
