  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  3. Place yogurt, sour cream, chipotle peppers, 1 tsp lime juice and coconut sugar in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a bowl and set aside.

  6. Shred cabbage and set aside.
  7. Drizzle fish with olive oil, rub with adobo seasoning and season, lightly, with salt and pepper
  8. Cook Mahi Mahi on a grill pan, rotating every 5 minutes until filets flake but aren't falling apart (about 15-20 minutes, depending on the size of your filets)
  9. As soon as the fish goes on the grill, wrap tortillas in 2 stacks of 4 in aluminum foil.
  10. Heat in the oven for 15-20 minutes, while fish is cooking.
  11. Assemble tacos, using 1/2 filet per taco, top with shredded cabbage, pickled jalapeƱos and drizzle with chipotle cream.
