Fish Tacos with Quick Pickled Rhubarb and Strawberry Salsa
Serves 4
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons fresh ginger, grated
1 lime, juiced
1/4 cup olive oil
4-6 cloves of garlic, minced
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 pound mahi mahi fish filets, thawed
1 tablespoon olive oil
8-10 corn tortillas
sour cream, for serving
pickled rhubarb*
strawberry salsa**

Whisk together honey, ginger, lime juice, olive oil, garlic, cumin, chili powder, and cinnamon. Cover the fish with the marinade and refrigerate for 15 minutes. 

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and let it heat up. Add the mahi mahi filets and top each with a tablespoon of the marinade, getting as much garlic in there as you can.

Let the fish cook for 3 minutes, until it becomes browned and caramelized, flip it and cook an additional 2-3 minutes until cooked through. Remove from heat and let cool slightly before serving. 

Wipe down the skillet and warm up the corn tortillas for serving. Garnish each taco with a smear of sour cream, mahi mahi, pickled rhubarb, and strawberry salsa.
