Really great! If I had a complaint, I would say the tacos were a little dry; however, I forgot the lime juice!

More spice on the fish and more cilantro in salsa the lime really helped give it flavor. Quick to put together. Needed something else to go with it not filling on its own.

I did like the flavorings on the fish a lot, but overall this was just okay. LOVED how easy it was to throw together.

So simple and so delicious!! I have a fish allergy so I substituted chicken for the fish and it came out unbelievably good. Everyone LOVED it and were fighting for the leftovers!!

So much good to say about this recipe. So EASY, FEW DISHES, QUICK, and DELICIOUS!!! I had never had Mahi Mahi before, and was delighted to find that I love it. I'm not a big seafood eater, so expanding my ocean palette is always good! love. <3
