South of the Border Grilled Mahi Mahi

Hola! I'm keepin' it south of the border this week! My frig is packed with peppers, cilantro, tomatoes, avocados & limes. My Pantry is packed with cumin, coriander, garlic and chile! Muy Delicioso!
Here is a recipe recommended to me from CrossFit Santa Cruz Central's Amenah Razeghi. Assuming you like to shop at Trader Joe's (don't we all?)... this is a one stop meal!
This was SO good, Amenah! Thank you!

Frozen mahi mahi package from TJ's
Papaya Mango Salsa, 15oz. in refrigerated section of TJ's
1/4 C lime juice
Chopped fresh cilantro, about 3 T
Crushed garlic, about 3 cloves
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. black pepper
pinch sea salt

Add frozen fish and marinade together in a zip lock bag. Refrigerate all day (turning occasionally). I used my grill pan to cook stove top, but it can also be barbecued! Heat pan, coated with olive oil, to med/hi heat. Grill fish for about 5 minutes on each side. Top with papaya mango salsa and serve!

Amenah served this (and so did I) with grilled zucchini. Which you can either grill along side the mahi mahi or broil. Coat zucchini with lime juice, olive oil, and sprinkle with some cumin and black pepper! Cook 'til crisp/tender.

I also served this with a side salad (tossed with more cilantro, avocado, radishes, cucumber, and tomatoes) and leftover cauliflower rice from yesterday! What an awesome meal! Hope you enjoy! ...We sure did!
Thanks again, Amenah! :-)

Kelly, I'm so stoked you tried it and posted it, yay! I just set some of this fish marinating this morning before CF. Heading over to a friend's right now to grill it for lunch, which we'll have alongside a big green salad. Yum!
