Step 1Make the salsa: Combine the mango, avocado, cilantro, red onions, lime juice, salt, and pepper. Taste and season with extra lime juice, salt, and pepper as needed. Set aside.

Step 2In a small bowl, combine the paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, thyme, black pepper, and chili powder. For a spicier fish filet, add more chili powder or a pinch of cayenne pepper.

Step 3Pat the fish dry with a paper towel. Cover the fish on both sides with the blackening seasoning.

Step 4Heat the butter and oil in a cast iron skillet over medium high heat. Once nice and hot, add the fish in a single layer. Cook for 2 - 4 minutes (depending on thickness of filet) on each side and carefully flip to cook on the other side for 3-4 minutes. A fish spatula works best to keep the fish from breaking.

Step 5Warm the corn tortillas. Assemble the tacos by breaking the fish into larger chunks as needed and serving in corn tortillas with mango salsa.
