Fish Taco with Avocado Mango Salsa

These fish tacos are so light and fresh, they will even turn the heads of the fish taco haters. Any white fish (e.g., pollock, catfish, grouper, haddock, halibut, rockfish, striped bass, or swordfish) can be substituted for the mahi mahi, so look for what is on sale.
