Mahi Mahi with Mango Salsa

While I am not a big sea food eater by any means,  this recipe was delicious.  It was most definitely different from my normal meals.  I can honestly say the household was divided on it's reviews,  but I'm going to say we loved it, because the three that didn't were my girls and they don't like anything new.

Besides being delicious,  it was fairly simple.  Here's all the ingredients for the mahi mahi:
     2 tbsp olive oil
     1 1/2 tsp soy sauce
     2 teaspoons lemon juice
     1 clove garlic, crushed (I substituted the garlic powder)
     1 teaspoons red pepper flakes  (the original recipe called for 2, so if you like really hot?)
     1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
     1/2 teaspoon minced fresh ginger root
     salt to taste
     4 mahi mahi fillets

Whisk together the olive oil, soy sauce, lemon juice, garlic, red pepper flakes, black pepper, ginger, and salt in a bowl.  Add the mahi mahi and toss to evenly coat.  Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack in the middle of the oven.  Remove the mahi mahi from the marinade, and shake off excess. Discard the remaining marinade. Place fish in a large baking dish in a singer layer. Broil in the preheated oven until the fish flakes easily with a fork, 10-15 minutes.  If the fish browns too quickly, cover the baking dish with a sheet of aluminum foil.

The Mango salsa isn't your typical tangy salsa,  it's actually sweet,  but it compliments the spicy of the mahi mahi perfectly.

     1 1/2 tsp butter
     1 1/2 tbsp sugar
      1 1/2 cups fresh mango, cubed

Melt  the butter in a skillet and mix in the sugar.  Once the mixture begins to bubble, stir in the mango cubes.  Cook and stir until mango is tender, about 5 minutes.

Serve the mahi mahi fillets over rice and top with the mango salsa.  Delicous!!
