Fish tacos with mango avocado salsa

Tonight's dinner
Cajun grilled fish tacos
Mango avocado salsa
Sour cream topping (optional)

Tacos are by far my favorite things to serve during summer. There is less cooking involved, only a whole bunch of chopping and prepping. All the things can be made in advance and then assembled just before serving. If you have to feed a crowd, just prep it all and create a taco bar for everyone to assemble their own tacos. Don't forget the margaritas.  
I love serving sweet fruity salsas with spicy grilled seafood and during summer and there are a lot of delicious fruits to choose from. These Cajun spiced fish tacos with mango avocado salsa are spicy, full of awesome flavor and totally delicious. The Cajun spice rub gives the fish an incredible smoky and spicy taste. The sweet and sour mango avocado salsa adds the summer to the dish. If you have a high spice quotient then add extra jalapeno pepper rings and a few extra dashes of lime juice. really brings out all the flavors.
