Grilled Mahi with Avocado Salsa

grilled mahi mahi recipe

Nothing beats a well-prepared fish dish when the temperatures outside are insanely hot. I crave light, fresh and healthy recipes and avoid anything really heavy when it comes to summertime meals. This grilled mahi could also be easily baked or grilled on an indoor George Foreman. I had the leftover salsa as a side with lunch the next day and the flavors tasted even better after marinating together overnight. It’d also taste delicious paired with just about any main dish- grilled chicken, steak, etc.
