2935. AVOCADO and BACON MAHI MAHI TACOS

serves six

1¼ lbs boneless skinless mahi mahi
12 whole wheat tortillas (6?)
2 medium avocados, Sliced
4 strips apple-smoked bacon, crumbled
½ cup diced tomatoes
½ cup diced red onion
½ cup sour cream
1½ tablespoons butter
1½ tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon tequila
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon sea salt & coarse black peppercorn
Cooking spray to grease

On cutting board cut mahi mahi into 1? cubes, then season with salt & pepper and transfer to large bowl. Melt butter in microwave, then combine with lime juice, tequila, and chili powder, whisking thoroughly. Pour marinade over fish and toss until all pieces are well coated. Place in refrigerator to marinate for 1 – 6 hours.

Heat skillet over medium flame and lightly toast each tortilla, flipping with kitchen tongs to crisp both sides. Place on wire rack to cool until needed.

Generously grease same skillet, then saute red onion over medium-high heat. As onions begin to brown, add in mahi mahi and stir continuously for 6-8 minutes until fish is evenly cooked. Reduce flame to low before stirring in tomatoes, then allow ingredients to simmer for 5 minutes.

Cook bacon in microwave and crumble with hands, then slice avocados. When ready, build tacos with a layer of sliced avocado, one serving spoon of mahi mahi, a dollop of sour cream, and a sprinkling of bacon. Immediately serve.

I can find them online but I’ve been searching the liquor stores in NJ and NYC to no avail. If anyone sees them in the stores please leave me a comment to let me know where. They aren’t cheap but those bottles are so cool I really don’t care. I’m on a misson.
P.S. I almost forgot to mention that I’ve emailed from the KAH website and sent them a message on Twitter and no response in over a week. 🙁
