  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 red onion, minced
  • 1/2 jalapeño, seeded and finely minced

  1. Cut the mahi-mahi into 16 equal slices, and season with salt as needed.

  5. Grill the fish over high heat until well-marked and cooked through, about 1 minute on each side.
  6. Place about 2 tablespoons of slaw into a corn tortilla and top with two pieces of fish. Top with sour cream and a squeeze of lime.
