Mango Mahi Mahi
Mahi Mahi is a readily available fish these days and it’s firm mild flesh both stands up well to grilling and taking of flavors. Mangos are also plentiful and due to mahi mahi not being too “fishy” I think it pairs well. Adding a bit of heat from fresh hot peppers and some gentle tang from rice wine vinegar really makes this a guest ready dish. Enjoy!
