Mahi Mahi Tacos

In this icky February weather, with the mix of snow and sleet and freezing temperatures, fish tacos are just the meal to bring you right to those vendors on the vast beaches in Hawaii... this recipe adds lots of flavor, a spicy kick, topped with crunchy corn, peppers and cabbage, plus they are fast and easy to make!  Try it out and let us know if you are transported to beautiful beaches as well :)
