Broiled Mahi-Mahi with Mango-Avocado Salsa

This is a nice, simple, and light summer dish. It's another one of Gwyneth Paltrow's recipes from Bon Appetit ("Grilled Halibut with Mango-Avocado Salsa"). I have tried a few of her recipes and this one is the best, so far. I didn't want to light up the grill for just two pieces of fish, so I put them under the broiler.

1 medium ripe avocado, cut into 1/2 inch dice
1 medium mango, cut into 1/2 inch dice
1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 tbsp thinly sliced basil leaves
olive oil
3-4 tbsp lime juice
black pepper
2 mahi-mahi fillets

Gently combine the avocado, mango, tomatoes, basil, 1 tbsp oil, and 2 tbsp lime juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside at room temperature. Drizzle 1-2 tbsp oil and 1-2 tbsp lime juice over the fish. Season with salt and pepper. Let marinate at room temperature for about 10 minutes, turning occasionally. Place a broiler rack over a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place fish on rack and broil, 6 inches away from heat, for 3-5 minutes per side. Serve with salsa and rice.


  1. This looks so light and delicious. I love the fruit salsa too.

  2. Looks awesome! I loove mango salsa!
