"DH and I enjoyed this fruity salsa with our mahi mahi. This recipe is from my "The New Legal Seafoods" cookbook. Prep time includes marinating time."

Ready In:


  • 1 12 - 2 lbs mahi mahi
  • vegetable oil
  • cajun seasoning, to taste
  • 1 cup mango, diced into 1/4 inch pieces
  • 1 cup plum tomato, diced
  • 13 - 12 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice (can also use lime juice)
  • 1 cup red onion, diced
  • 2 -3 tablespoons jalapenos, seeded, minced
  • 2 -3 tablespoons of fresh mint, julienned (can also use a mixture of mint and tarragon)
  • jasmine rice


  • Preheat the broiler.
  • Plance the mahi mahi on a broiling rack. Coat with vegetable oil, then sprinkle with Cajun seasoning to taste. Let sit at least 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, gently toss together the mango, plum tomatoes, olive oil, lemon juice, onions, and jalapeno. Do not overmix.
  • Broil the fish until cooked through without turning. As mahi mahi is a dense fish, this will take anywhere from 10-15 minutes.
  • Just before serving the salsa, stir in the mint.
  • Place a mound of jasmine rice in the center of a serving platter, surrounded with the fish, then garnish with half of the salsa. Put the remaining salsa in a bowl and pass.

    This was the first time I tried Mahi Mahi and I loved it. Thank you so much for this recipe. It's light refreshing and very easy to make


I work full-time as a School Psychologist in Michigan. Besides the kids, one of the best aspects of the job is summer vacation, when I can concentrate on doing more of the things that I like to do---like look up recipes and play games on Recipezaar!!! I married my wonderful and handsome husband, Sean, in August 2007. He is becoming a wonderful gardender and tends to both our veggie and herb gardens. We really enjoy cooking with our own fresh ingredients. We most often cook together, so my reviews typically reflect our joint opinions. He's the better cook, so I pick up a lot of my techniques from him. My other interests include reading (now that I have time), Irish dancing (I've taken a class for the last several years), "appreciating" wine (I use the term very loosely), and listening to and going to see Irish bands (I love the Pogues). I also enjoy travelling, especially around Western Europe, where I have been multiple times. One of my favorite places is Italy, and Sean and I had a great time on our honeymoon eating, drinking, and sightseeing in the Cinque Terre and in Tuscany. This July 2009, we expanded our horizons to Eastern Europe and visited the Czech Republic, Slovenia, and Croatia. Two of my favorite dishes on the trip were Croatian: fish brodet and Hvarska gregada. I am looking forward to trying my hand at making them at home as I see that someone on Zaar, who is Croatian, posted recipes for both! Besides my husband, the other lights of my life are my cats: Chloe, Pip, and my newest ragdoll cat, Giselle, all of whom I absolutely adore. <a href="¤t=PipChloe_web.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Pip and Chloe"></a> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Giselle"></a> I've participated in the following events: <img src="" border="0" alt= "Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> I most recently had the privelege of being on the ZWT5 Team, the Sultans of Spice, with a great group of people.
