Mahi Mahi with Avocado Salsa

Raven Higheagle


My neighbor gifted me some beautiful Mahi Mahi filets recently, so I immediately went in search of a recipe to figure out how to cook it. This recipe was fantastic!
I cooked these under the broiler and they were perfectly flaky and juicy. This salsa was the perfect pairing with the fish and gave it such a fresh flavor. If you aren’t a fish lover, never fear because this salsa is great with chips and would be great on chicken or tacos as well! Also, if you don’t have/can’t find Mahi Mahi try this with another kind of white fish like halibut. Source: My
