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.

LET’S GET SOCIAL!

I am more than just recipes. I love fashion and style too! Most importantly, I love my Family (my Hubby and my Fur Babies). My Husband (aka my “Kitchen Bitch”) means the world to me. He’s pretty damn cool too. Not only is he one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, he also has had a lengthy career in professional hockey. Not only winning two Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the early ’90’s, but most recently winning the Calder Cup with the Charlotte Checkers, amongst many other accolades. If you live in Charlotte and play hockey, or have a family member who plays, be sure to contact him!

Our life has changed dramatically in the past few years with the passing of our two goldendoodles, Vegas and Viva. We were lucky enough to have Vegas for five years (totally wish it was longer). Most recently, losing our Viva to a brain tumor in July of 2020. We welcomed our mini goldendoodle 7, almost seven years ago. We just added the amazing Hazel! Of course, I am always posting tons and tons of photos! Be sure to check out my recipe for Pet Bone Broth! This broth is super rich in nutrients and will provide your pet with a multitude of health benefits!
