Blackened Mahi-Mahi Lettuce Wraps with Lime Crema
I would like to go on the record by saying…I am not a fan of fish tacos. Even though I have an amazing recipe on my blog for them…they are just not my jam! I was wondering to myself, how could I make a version of fish tacos that I would actually want to eat…so here it is…Blackened Mahi-Mahi Lettuce Wraps with Lime Crema. I used Mahi-Mahi for this recipe, but feel free to use one of your favorites or even shrimp. You can grab, or even have shipped to you, super fresh fish/seafood and our signature Blackening seasoning from The Carolina Meat & Fish Co.

What you need:
- 1 lb. Mahi-Mahi (skinless)
- Blackening Seasoning (click here for my recipe)
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup mayo
- 1 lime (zest and juice)
- Citrus Jalapeno Salsa (optional…click here for recipe)
- Lettuce leaves
- Juice of 1/2 lemon
- Pinch of salt
Fire up the grill. Squeeze lemon juice over fish and cover both sides with the blackening seasoning. Place on grill and allow to sear on both sides…depending on thickness…fish will take about 3 to 4 minutes a side to cook through. While fish is grilling, combine sour cream, mayo, lime zest and lime juice in a bowl and whisk until incorporated. Place finished sauce in squeeze bottle. If you are also making the salsa, I recommend preparing this ahead of time and storing in fridge until ready to assemble the wraps.
Carefully, pull the leaves off the lettuce to create cups. Cut grilled fish into bite sized cubes and place into lettuce cups. Top with a few spoonfuls of the Citrus Jalapeno Salsa. Finish with the Lime Crema. Enjoy!
