Notes:

  1. Mahi mahi can easily be replaced with shrimp.
  2. The crema and salsa can be made a day in advance. 
  3. The air fryer can be used instead of a grill. Air fry at 400°F for 8 minutes.
  4. Serve with a side of lemon wedges for an extra punch.

Great fish taco recipe. I think mango would also be great if you can't find peach.
