Grilled Fish Tacos with Mango Cucumber Salsa and Chipotle Crema

These tacos were fresh, delicious and healthy.
Plus they're very quick to prepare! I spent the majority of prep time dicing produce.
I also didn't use a recipe... hooray! 
But that also may mean my measurements are a leetle bit off.
The salsa is a perfect balance of sweet, spicy and refreshing.

What You'll Need:
Serves 2
for fish:
2 med-large tilapia fillets 
for salsa:
2 mangos, diced 
1 limes 
1/2 yellow onion, diced
1/2 cup chopped cilantro, divided in two
1/2 large jalapeno, diced 
1/2 cucumber, diced
black pepper to taste
for crema:
1 chipotle in adobo sauce
2 tbsp reserved adobo sauce
1/2 cup buttermilk 
1/4 cup mayo
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1 lime
1 tbsp sugar 
warmed tortillas (I prefer the uncooked flour tortillas that you warm on the stove)
avocado, sliced 
black beans

What To Do:
Dice your mango, onion, 1/4 cup cilantro, cucumber and jalapeno into very small pieces. If you've never diced a mango before, watch this video first! 

In a separate bowl, combine mango, cucumber, onion, jalapeno, cilantro, and the juice from one lime. Add salt and black pepper to taste.

In a food processor, combine chipotle, adobo sauce, buttermilk, mayo, sour cream, garlic, remaining cilantro, juice from 1 lime, and sugar. If you'd like a thinner consistency, add more buttermilk and/or less mayo and sour cream. 

Salt and pepper fish fillets. Grill for 2-3 minutes on each side or until they are white and flake with a fork. 

Serve each taco in a warm tortilla with 1/2 fish fillet, scoop of salsa, chipotle cream, and a slice of avocado. Serve with black beans and tortilla chips.

The salsa is also great with tortilla chips, and the chipotle crema is perfect for salads!
I warn you... I'm kind of a wimp but I thought the crema was preeetty spicy. If you're not a big fan of hotness, you might add half a chipotle first!
