The fish is much too bland if made according to the recipe. If you read the reviews that gave high rating, they changed/enhanced the recipe.
Loved this. Here is my recommendation. Made the salsa as is + a splash of apple cider vinegar + 1 tsp honey. Then sauteed the mahi in butter/olive oil/garlic (1 tbls)/capers (3-4 Tbls.) YUMMM!!!!! The savory of the capers and garlic with the sweet of the salsa & honey and the acid of the vinegar. WOW! This was a definite keeper!!!!! Thank you!
My husband believes in keeping the freezer full of mahi mahi and swordfish fillets. I usually pan saute with butter and lemon. Decided to try something new. We loved this recipe. I used jalapenos, a little hot sauce, and also a couple of tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and a little honey. Very zippy, and makes a beautiful presentation. Easy recipe. Took about 5 minutes to make the salsa, and I had to peel a few slices of fresh pineapple I had in the fridge. Once you make the salsa, you can put it aside for an hour or so and then quickly make the fish when you see all the shining faces arrive from work/school. Thanks for the recipe.
