Tequila lime mahi mahi tacos with pineapple salsa

I was in love with these tacos and debated on making the fish a recipe all on its own. But I just couldn’t myself to separate them. All of the flavors and textures combined create a great eating experience packed with explosive flavor. The fish is heavily spiced but it balances really well with the sweet and spicy salsa. Let’s jump into the recipe!
