Mahi Mahi is a firm white fish that is perfect for pan searing or grilling. This tropical mango-pineapple-avocado salsa is scrumptious all by itself, and tastes fabulous with the fish. Tender, flavorful, and flaky white fish can easily be accomplished!
When I first started this blog, I wrote about Pan Seared Mahi Mahi. Some things don’t change, and when something is this good, there’s a reason we keep making it over and over.
As soon as spring shows the promise of summer up ahead, I start craving tropical salsas. And nothing showcases a refreshing tropical salsa like a good white fish…
We always say this whenever we go on foodie restaurant outings: You can tell a lot about how good (or not) a restaurant is by how well it cooks up its fish. Seafood is one of the easiest things to overcook, and once overcooked, it’s game over. I know this because I always order seafood.
In general, once seafood starts to turn opaque, it’s done. Voila! No more heat on that baby, please! For fish, once it feels mostly firm to the touch and loses its transparency, it should be nicely done.
This Mahi Mahi with Mango Avocado Salsa is obviously done with mahi mahi fillets, which is a firm and somewhat flaky white fish that lends itself well to pan searing. Halibut would be another awesome choice for a hearty white fish with great flavor.
We served this Mahi Mahi with Mango Avocado Salsa just recently at our Gourmet Club. Gourmet Club has been one of our highlights since moving here. A few couples who have the love of food in common. We cook, do serious wine pairings, we bake, and we eat. It’s all good. Very good.
Recently, we decided to switch things up and start doing themed dinners. It was high time to branch out and go global with our dishes. So when it was our turn to host, we chose to go with a tropical theme to welcome in the soon-t0-be-summer (still waiting on the summer.)
Which is how we ended up serving this tender, flaky, refreshing Mahi Mahi.
Mahi Mahi with Mango Avocado Salsa is simple yet impressive, and tastes absolutely divine.
Served alongside this scrumptious coconut rice or a simple rice pilaf, it would make a phenomenal meal for the weekend. Have a couple of friends over, and enjoy!Print

This one requires a bit of fearlessness, but if you’re willing to try something a bit daring and reap the delicious rewards, you’ll want to try this awesome Salmon Poke. A popular Hawaiian appetizer.
And if you’ve never made your own Cioppino (a San Fransiscan Seafood Stew)…. really, really, it must be made at least once in your lifetime. You will wonder where this has been hiding all your life.
