This is a dinner meal with a punch! Mahi Mahi is a protein rich, lean white fish with a mild flavor that pairs really well with a pineapple salsa. Serve over a bed of your favorite lettuce blend, and you have a healthy, low calorie, protein rich lunch or dinner. Warning: this fish has a bit of a spicy kick, so if that’s not your thing, omit the cayenne pepper. Enjoy!
Mahi Mahi (Serves 3-4)
4-5 fillets of Mahi Mahi
Sodium-free Chili Pepper
Season both sides of the Mahi Mahi with all of the seasonings. I recommend being sparing with the Sea salt (seasoning one side only). Gently pat seasoning into the fish and grill on the BBQ until the fish is opaque through out. 3-5 minutes on each side should be ample.
Tip: I have purposely omitted the amount of each spice I use. If you love garlic, add more; and if you want it extra-spicy, pack on the cayenne pepper!
1 cup Chopped Pineapple
1.5 cups Grape or Cherry Tomatoes
¼ cup Diced Onion (Recommendation: Red onion)
1-2 Tbsp. Lime Juice
1 Tsp. Garlic
1 Tsp. Chili powder
Cilantro to taste
Optional: ¼ tsp. sea salt
Optional: 1 diced jalapeno
Combine all ingredients and refrigerate for 1 hour to let the flavors really mix. Recommendation: Make salsa the night before.
