Like a bushel of freshly picked apples, a pint of locally brewed craft beer, or a favorite spot to view fall foliage, some things are just too good not to share. At Elsmere, we keep most of our recipes top secret, but when we had the opportunity to share one of our favorites with News Center Maine’s viewers, we jumped at the opportunity! Recently News Center Maine’s Amanda Hill visited our kitchen for a behind-the-scenes look at how we make our customer favorite, Mahi Mahi Tacos.

Let’s Taco ‘Bout It...
The Mahi Mahi tacos, which have become one of our most popular menu items at both Elsmere BBQ locations, combine fresh and flavorful ingredients inside a soft Pachanga tortilla. Each taco begins with a bed of crisp local cabbage, topped with marinated mahi fresh from the grill. We add our flavorful homemade grilled corn salsa for a dose of color and texture, then finish the tacos with a drizzle of zingy chipotle mayo and a few sprigs of fresh cilantro. It’s common knowledge that we eat with our eyes first, and our Mahi Mahi tacos are too colorful and appetizing to resist!

A Newsworthy Recipe
With Amanda and the News Center crew in the kitchen, we shared each step of the recipe and preparation. Having an extra set of hands to help out allowed us to make the tacos in record time, proving that this recipe would be perfect to make at home with family! The goal of sharing some of our most coveted recipes with News Center Maine is to get viewers excited about preparing and eating delicious food made with fresh and local ingredients. In September and October, we will be sharing two more of our most popular recipes, and we can’t wait to have the News Center Maine team back in our kitchen!
