FOR THE TACOS

Add those ingredients to a blender along with the meat from two avocados, the juice from 1 lime and a handful of cilantro. Add cooking liquid until creamy consistency is reached. Salt to taste.

FOR THE FISH

  • Combine garlic powder, chili powder, cumin, salt, lime, jalapeno and Altos Tequila Plata in a small bowl and whisk until combined. Add the mahi and let sit for 5-10 minutes. Add coconut oil to a pan and turn the heat to medium-high. When it's hot, add the fish with the liquid that it is marinated in. Let the fish cook on one side until golden brown and then flip and sauté until the fish is fully cooked through.
