White fish is one of the leanest and healthiest protein sources out there, but sad to say, I’m just not always in the mood for it!! It has to be cooked just right, maybe with a little something on top ;). Strawberry salsa, you say? Yes please! Paired together with mahi mahi…I think I’ve found a match made in healthy heaven! The strawberries make it just sweet enough, while the jalapeño and red onion add a little kick. Sweet + spicy = my favorite flavor combo! And believe it or not, it’s pretty dang easy to prepare. Rule of thumb: if I can do it, ANYONE can do it! Indulge in this perfectly sweet + spicy combo, and sub this meal for one of your old standbys this week. I assure you, you won’t be disappointed…and you’ll get a good dose of omega 3 fatty acids that we need!
What you’ll need:
12 oz mahi mahi, cut into 3 portions
2 large strawberries, diced small
1/2 avocado, diced small
2 tbsp cilantro, chopped
1 tsp red onion, finely chopped
1-2 tsp jalapeño, finely chopped (use according to personal preference)
juice of 1/2 a lime
1/2 lime, cut into wedges
What you’ll do:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F, and coat a baking dish with nonstick spray. Place the fish in the dish and bake for 25 minutes, if frozen, or 12 minutes, if thawed. The fish should easily flake with a fork when cooked through.
In a bowl, combine the strawberries, avocado, cilantro, red onion, and jalapeño. Squeeze lime juice over the salsa and mix.
Top the fish with salsa and serve with lime wedges.
