- 2 mahi mahi fillets
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 jalapeño, finely chopped
- 1 & 1/2 teaspoons garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup cilantro, lightly packed
- 1 whole lime, sliced in half
- 1 whole mango, sliced
- Scoop out avocado into a medium bowl, mash and add cilantro, onion, lime juice, salt, pepper and jalapeño. Set aside.
- Heat 1/2 tablespoon of butter in pan over medium heat. When butter has melted, add jalapeño, minced garlic and cilantro leaves. Sauté for 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until cilantro wilts and garlic starts to brown.
- Lay fish directly on top of sautéed cilantro and garlic. Squeeze half a lime over the fish. Cook 7 minutes and flip.
- Squeeze other half of lime on top of fish and allow fish to cook until it begins to flake and appears white (not pink or raw) inside, approximately 5-7 minutes depending on thickness of the fish.
- In the meantime, grill mango on griddle top or grill until warm and slightly charred, about 2-4 minutes on each side.
- Remove fish from pan. Top with grilled mango and guacamole. Serve with your choice of side (pairs nicely with wild rice or farro).
