The other day I went to the store to pickup something for dinner, and I found myself at the fish counter feeling incredibly indecisive. Luckily for me, the guy working behind the counter asked if I liked Mahi-mahi and before I knew it I was walking away from the counter with my decision made for me.
When trying to figure out what to make with it as I moseyed over to the vegetable section, mango came to mind! Mahi-mahi with a fresh mango salsa and asparagus on the side. Brilliant! It was easy, delicious and so fresh tasting.
- 1lb fresh filet of Mahi-mahi
- bunch of asparagus
- 1 ripe mango diced into cubes
- 1/2 red bell pepper diced
- 1/2 red onion diced
- 2 tsp finely chopped cilantro
- juice of 2 limes
- salt & pepper
Preheat oven to 425˚ F.
Let’s make the salsa. Put your mango, pepper, onion, cilantro and juice of one lime in a bowl and combine. If you want a little spice, you could add red pepper flakes, or some cayenne powder.
In a braiser pan or pyrex dish (an oven safe vessel), add some olive oil. Salt and pepper your fish filet and lay in dish. Top with salsa and another teaspoon of lime juice and drizzle some more olive oil over the top. Pop it in the oven for 25-30min!
Cut the thick ends off of your asparagus. Add some olive oil to a pan and heat over medium heat. Toss your asparagus with some lime juice, salt and pepper and add to the pan. Cook until bright green and slightly browned. I like mine still crunchy and not too cooked, but make them however you like. It should take about 15-20 min.
After about 25-30min, check the fish and make sure it’s cooked through! Once it’s all done, remove from the oven. I made some rice to go with this dish, you could really make any type of grain, or just go fish & veg!
Plate up your fish with your asparagus, and enjoy!!! Yumm yum.
