Buffalo Mahi Fish Tacos

First off, Go Bills! Glad to see they narrowly escaped an incredibly inspired opponent. Now that my vitals are back to normal after a tense game, I can think clearly enough to post the meal we made for the game! Of course, we had to pick Mahi as our main protein because its other name is “Dolphinfish,” and Buffalo was hosting the Dolphins for the tilt. We then cut up the fillets, fried them up, tossed them in some Buffalo sauce, and built our tacos from there!

I will say, while these tacos were good luck, they did not propel Buffalo to the worry free victory I was hoping. But, they are still a great choice for a gameday experience…or a Taco Tuesday!

Time: 30 Minutes


  • Mahi Fillets (one fillet makes about 3 tacos)
  • All Purpose Flour
  • Buffalo Sauce
  • Blue Cheese (or Ranch) Dressing
  • Taco Toppings. We used Spinach, Tomato, and Onion. However, Blue Cheese Coleslaw would be great too.
  • Tortillas


  • Slice and dice your taco topping ingredients, and set each aside. (Doing this first, you can use just one cutting board and have less to clean)
  • Pat your fish dry with a paper towel, and then slice each fillet into 1/4-1/2″ cross-sections.
  • Put a little all purpose flour in a bowl, and add your mahi slices. Toss to coat.
  • Heat some oil in a heavy bottomed pan (we prefer Cast Iron), and when it’s hot, add your fish. Cook the fish turns a light golden brown, and flip.
  • Once your fish is cooked, remove it from the pan, and add it to a mixing bowl.
  • Pour in some Buffalo Sauce, and toss to combine.
  • Build your tacos with your toppings and fish, and add a bit of dressing to finish them off.
  • Devour and Enjoy!
