  • ½ cup tequila
  • 6 tablespoons fresh lime juice (3 limes)
  • 4 teaspoons Wholesome blue agave or liquid allulose
  • ¼ cup avocado oil (or other vegetable oil), plus more for the pan
  • 1 tablespoon Cointreau or orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ cup cilantro leaves
  • 2 pounds mahi-mahi – cut into bite-sized pieces
  • Kosher or fine sea salt
  • Black pepper
  • 2 cups coleslaw mix
  • 3 radishes , thinly sliced
  • ½ small red onion , thinly sliced
  • Corn or grain-free tortillas , warmed or grilled
Optional Garnishes:
  • Avocado, sliced
  • Cilantro leaves
  • Fresh lime wedges
  • Pickled jalapenos
  1. Combine the tequila, lime juice, agave, oil, Cointreau, ground cumin, and cilantro leaves in a food processor or blender and process until fully combined.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the coleslaw mix, radishes, and red onion. Add just enough of the marinade to moisten the coleslaw, about 2-3 tablespoons. Season with ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper and let sit at room temperature while the fish marinates.

  3. Season the fish with salt and pepper. Pour the remaining marinade over the fish in a food storage bag and let sit at room temperature for 15-20 minutes.

  4. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat, brush with a little oil, add the fish, and cook for 4-5 minutes or until opaque, flipping once.
  5. Serve on tortillas with the slaw and any additional garnishes you desire.
