Mahi Mahi with Mango Salsa… OH SO YUM!

I made this Mahi Mahi with Mango Salsa for dinner the other night and it was a hit. Such a nice, light dinner for a summer evening!

To make the salsa, I diced a mango, half a red onion, half a red pepper and minced some cilantro. I tossed it in lime juice and salt and pepper and let the flavors blend for about a half hour.

The mahi mahi is from Costco. I bought a bag of frozen individually wrapped fillets. They are the perfect single serving sizes. I used my I Love Meat and Poultry square griddle, provided by GreenPan to grill the mahi mahi. I just salted and peppered it and brushed it with olive oil. Simple.

Then I spooned the salsa over the fish and served it with oven-roasted cauliflower and sautéed swiss chard.

Everyone lapped it up.
