Halibut Soft Tacos Recipe

Halibut Soft Tacos Recipe

I sometimes serve the fish wrapped in lettuce instead of tortillas. Either way, the mango salsa tastes amazing with grilled halibut. This warm-weather favorite is quick, colorful and full of nutrients. —Kristin Kossak, Bozeman, Montana
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1 medium mango, peeled and cubed
  • 1/2 cup cubed avocado
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped seeded jalapeno pepper
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
  • 3 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 pound halibut steaks (3/4 inch thick)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 Bibb lettuce leaves
  • 4 flour tortillas (6 inches), warmed
  • 4 teaspoons sweet Thai chili sauce


  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the mango, avocado, onion, jalapeno, cilantro, 2 teaspoons oil, lemon juice and honey; set aside. Brush halibut with remaining oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • 2. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack. Grill halibut, covered, over high heat or broil 3-4 in. from the heat for 3-5 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.

"Yum, yum. Skipped the Thai chili sauce, used corn tortillas, and ate the leftover salsa the next day. I made this recipe twice in three days. Delicious!"

"I loved the idea of this recipe, but it seemed a little flat-tasting when I made it. So I added juice from a whole lime, a little salt (maybe 1/4 tsp) and some fresh ginger (1 T). Awesome! This will be a summer favorite!"

"Tasty! I used jarred jalapenos and white onions. Used a whole avocado, I'm not quite sure how many to use for half a cup but the salsa came out almost like a guacamole."

"These are simply amazing! Only reason I didn't rate 5 stars is because I forgot the chili sauce! We used cod since it was less expensive and white onion instead of red. I also substituted lime juice for lemon...the lime was a good compliment to the mango! My 5 and 2 year old loved them too!"

"We loved them. We did use the Thai chili Sauce. It is not a really hot sauce, it is more sweet than hot. I personally prefered the tacos without the chili Sauce. I felt it covered up the wonderful flavors of the Mango Salsa."
