Master Your Metabolism with Jillian Michaels’ Spicy Mahi-Mahi and Mango Tacos

Jillian Michaels' Spicy Mahi-Mahi and Mango Tacos. Find more Jillian Michaels' recipes at This Mama Cooks! On a Diet - Fish tacos get a bad rap because much of time the fish is battered, fried and served with a fatty mayonnaise or sour cream sauce. Instead, Jillian Michael’s recipe from The Master Your Metabolism Cookbook has several nutritional benefits like being heart healthy, an immunity booster and anti-cancer. She also claims it improves your digestion and gives you healthy skin.

This Mama’s tips

  • If you cannot find (or afford) mahi mahi, tilapia is a good substitute.
  • Personally I prefer corn tortillas over whole wheat. Not only do they taste better, but they’re more authentic. But Jillian wants you to avoid starchy vegetables like corn, so I completely understand why she uses whole wheat tortillas instead. If you’re gluten free, use corn tortillas.
  • I’m shocked that originally there was no cilantro in this recipe, so I took the liberty of adding some for you! In The Master Your Metabolism Cookbook, Jillian Michaels writes that cilantro is a “form of natural chelation therapy, helping to detox the liver and remove heavy metals from the body.” So I didn’t think she’d mind.
  • If you can’t find virgin coconut oil, use olive or grapeseed oil instead.
