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 and seafood, and our signature Blackening seasoning from The Carolina Meat & Fish Co.

Fire up the grill or grill pan. 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, the fish will take about 3 to 4 minutes a side to cook through.
While the fish is grilling, combine sour cream, mayo, lime zest and lime juice in a bowl. Whisk until fully 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 you are 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 Jalapeño Salsa. Finish with a squeeze of the Lime Crema. ENJOY these Blackened Mahi-Mahi Lettuce Wraps for a quick lunch or add a side of my Mexican Rice for a fabulous dinner.
