This is what I’d call a serious “shortcut recipe” with a premixed seasoning and fish that cooks in less than 10 minutes. We often add mango to our fish tacos, but this is the first time I’ve tried it with blackened fish (a family favorite), and let me tell you … it is a winning combination!
I love it when something so simple is so incredibly tasty and wholesome. This is definitely going to be the new way we do fish tacos for the foreseeable future (because it’s no secret how I like to switch things up whenever I can)! What’s your favorite way to make fish tacos?
Before I jump into the recipe let’s discuss how to cut a mango, since I know sometimes it can be a bit tricky or intimidating. I am not saying this is the “right” way, but this is my way. Here’s what to do …
How To Cut A Mango
- First, peel the skin off the outside of a ripe (slightly soft) mango with a carrot peeler.
- Second, position the mango upright and slice right down the middle with one of these handy, dandy tools (pictured).
- Third, lay the two pieces without the seed flat on a cutting board and dice away.
- Fourth, and never forget this step, pick up the seed and nibble off the bits that stayed intact!

Do you know if the blackening seasoning is gluten free? Can’t find the info. Sometimes seasoning is hard to tell and contains gluten. (Husband is highly sensitive)
Hi, if you visit their direct site for the seasoning it says that it is GF. – Nicole
Is 12 ounces of cheese correct? It doesn’t look like that much in the picture.
You can use as little or as much as you’d like for serving. – Nicole
