Taste of Home Heavenly Greek Tacos

 My two rapidly growing boys have been eating my cupboards and fridge bare recently. I have been making an attempt to prepare as many dishes using varied proteins as I can to keep them full at least a little bit longer. The one protein that they have been loving lately, is fish. Every recipe that I have made using fish they have eaten their whole serving. I have been trying to give them a variety of fish and different preparation methods to try in order that they don't get bored. The June/July issue of Taste of Home magazine had a recipe for Heavenly Greek Tacos, which looked perfect for my family.

With 19 ingredients, this recipe takes some preparation work. My total prep time was approximately 50 minutes, including marinating. Instead of using an outdoor grill, I used my foreman indoor grill open. I like to use the indoor grill open in order for the flavor of the fish to not be pressed out by the grill plates. The only ingredient I had a hard time finding was wild caught mahi mahi. The first two stores that I shopped at a number of different varieties of farm raised white fish, but no wild caught mahi mahi. I was finally able to find wild caught mahi mahi at the third store I visited. I didn't make any substitutions or modifications and followed the recipe as stated.

My whole family loved these tacos! The combination of the veggies and yogurt sauce with the fish is delicious. The only modification that I would suggest is that the sauce could benefit from having some of the leftover half of a cucumber chopped and incorporated in. This would give some texture and extra flavor to the yogurt sauce. Additionally, my husband learned the hard way not to add too much fish to the tacos, or it loses some of the flavor from the veggies and the fish becomes overpowering. I used whole-wheat tortillas as suggested by the recipe, but regular flour tortillas would work also. If I were to make the recipe again in the future I would probably use the regular tortillas, my husband finds the whole-wheat tortillas too gritty for his tastes. This is a great summertime fish recipe that is very family friendly.
