1.Pull Mahi Mahi fillets from the freezer and thaw. While thawing, whisk together the oil, lime juice, chili powder, cumin, ground corriander, serrano chili (optional for heat and additional flavor), and cilantro. Coat the fillets with the marinade and marinate for about an hour while you heat the grill and prepare the Crema and salsa.
2.For the crema, simply mix together the crema ingredients and return to the refrigerator to chill until needed.
3.For the Mango Pineapple Salsa, cut the mango into very small dice and place into a small bowl. Cut the pineapple into small dice as well and add to the bowl. Add 2 Tbs of lime juice, some chopped red onion, cilantro and some diced chili. Stir and salt lightly. Taste and adjust seasonings as desired.
4.With the grill heated to a medium heat, place fish fillets onto the grill. Grill for 3-4 minutes and flip fish. Grill just until cooked through (cooking time will vary based on the thickness of your fish). Remove from grill and prepare tacos.
5.Drizzle some of the Crema onto a flour tortilla. Layer with shredded cabblage, fish, and avocado. Top with the mango pineapple salsa and more of the crema. Serve.
