Grilled Mahi Mahi with Mango Salsa:


For the Mahi Mahi:

  • 4 Mahi Mahi fillets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice or lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

For the Mango Salsa:

  • 1 ripe mango, peeled and diced

  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Salt, to taste


  1. Prep the Fish: In a mixing bowl, combine olive oil, lemon/lime juice, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Marinate the Mahi Mahi fillets in this mixture for 15-20 minutes.
  2. Mango Salsa: While the fish is marinating, prepare the salsa. In a bowl, combine all the salsa ingredients and mix well. Adjust salt and lime juice according to taste. Set aside.
