Seared Ahi Tacos with Mango Avocado Salsa. They’re cooked, they’re raw…they’re the best of both worlds!
Life is so full of options. Do I go this way? Do I go that way? Is there a route out there that I’ve never even heard of? Which way gets me there quicker? How satisfied will I be when I get there? Is it about the journey or the destination? Which way do I gooooooooo? Options can be overwhelming.
This is why we sear things. It’s the best of all worlds.
Oh wait, you were looking for a philosophical cure-all to your life’s perma-question. Yeah, none of those here…just the food. Which, if you’re me, is the cureall.
Cooked, raw. Cooked. Raw. In a world of possibilities, why not choose both? Oh hey, look at this seared ahi – it’s a cooked and raw cure-all.
Seared Ahi Tacos with Mango Avocado Salsa make a mighty fine meal. Not only are these tacos fresh and easy, but from start to finish, they require no more than 20 minutes to fashion up. Searing ahi is the best way to eat ahi in my opinion. You get the flavor crisp on the outside and the fish stays tender. I find cooking ahi through can be a bit tricky. It’s lean, which means there is little fat to keep it moist, resulting in a firmer fish when fully cooked.
Mango avocado salsa is a staple in my heart and home. It happens weekly, typically on girl’s night. In fact, my friends are looking at this post like, “ohhh, mango avacadah salsaaaaaa…how unpredictable, Julia.” <- – – they don’t have a Bostonian accent. We just talk at each other like this. So, this salsa. It’s a real flavor-maker. When I’m lazy, it’s feeding time, and/or there’s wine in my glass, you can bet this mango avocado salsa is what’s sealing the meal deal together. As in, we’re eating salsa on spring greens. And that is all.
Truth: this isn’t a new-to-you recipe, as I posted Seared Ahi Tacos with Pineapple Salsa two years ago. Nevertheless, every once in a while, you need a little refresher. As in, every once in a while, I need to spoon-feed myself mango avocado salsa whilst I get a little sear on.
Sear your ahi and have the best of both worlds.
