Mahi Mahi with Nectarine Salsa – Healthy Tuesday

Mahi Mahi with Nectarine Salsa - Finished Plate

Mahi Mahi with Nectarine Salsa was originally scheduled for a Thursday dinner, but we didn’t have anything left on the menu for Meatless Monday, so decided that fish was our next best bet.

This was a super duper easy dinner to throw together. The hardest part, which really isn’t that hard, is cutting up the fruit and vegetables to use in the salsa. Otherwise, it throws together quickly and cooks just as quickly. Easy on nights when you are short on time or energy.

We first put together the salsa so it could have time to chill in the fridge a bit before cooking the fish.

Jason ended up adding some black pepper on the fish too before throwing it on the grill to cook up.

    • Mahi Mahi is a white fish, super light and flaky – not fishy at all I would say.
