  • 1-2 bell peppers sliced (or 300 g frozen sliced bell peppers)
  • 2 filets of mahi thawed (224 g)
  • Trader Joe’s BBQ seasoning*
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 6 Extra thin mission corn tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded green cabbage
  • ¼ cup skinny chipotle cream 60 g
  • ¼ cup pickled onions
  • ¼ cup cilantro lime ranch 60 g


  • Pre heat air fryer to 400 degrees. Spray basket with a mist of avocado oil spray and add bell peppers. Cook for five minutes. While bell peppers cook, season mahi filets liberally with BBQ seasoning and a good sprinkle of kosher salt. *You can always just use a good blend of garlic, chili powder, paprika, salt, pepper. Just season well.
  • When the five minutes are up, scoot bell peppers to the sides to make room for the fish. Add fish and cook for another five minutes until done.
  • Toss cabbage in 2 Tbsp of the cilantro lime ranch. Char tortillas over the stove, or heat in a pan with a little oil spray. Build each taco with 10 grams (2 tsp) of chipotle cream, a pinch of the cabbage, a couple tablespoons of the cooked bell pepper, about 40 grams of cooked mahi, a few pickled onions, and a drizzle of the cilantro lime ranch. Enjoy!
