Blueberry Salsa over Grilled Mahi Mahi

Are you guys getting sick of all the blueberry recipes yet? I hope not, because I’ve still got a couple more to go. And the great thing is that I was able to freeze about half of the blueberries we picked, so I will be able to make and post blueberry recipes all year!

When I saw this recipe pop up on Cara’s Cravings, I knew it was something Hubby and I would thoroughly enjoy. Boy was I right about that! The blueberry salsa has a sweetness and a bit of heat that pairs so well with the subtle grilled mahi-mahi. This salsa would also be great on chips or over chicken.

If you’re looking for a savory way to use up some of your blueberries, definitely give this recipe a shot. And if you want, you can make the salsa ahead of time and store it in the fridge for a few hours.

Blueberry Salsa over Grilled Mahi Mahi

Yield: Serves 2

Ingredients:

For the Fish:
2 mahi mahi filets
1 tsp olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste

For the Blueberry Salsa:
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1 mango, peeled and diced
1 red pepper, chopped
1/2 of an avocado, diced
2 Tbsp minced red onion
3 Tbsp minced fresh cilantro
1-2 tsp minced jalapeno pepper
juice from 1/2 lime
pinch of salt, to taste

Directions:

Preheat grill (or grill pan) to medium. Rub the olive oil onto the fish filets, and season with salt and pepper.

In a medium bowl, combine the blueberries, mango, red pepper, avocado, red onion, cilantro, and jalapeno pepper. Squeeze the lime juice over everything, toss to combine, and season with salt, to taste. Set aside.

Grill the fish for about 4 minutes per side, or until it flakes easily and is opaque in the center. Plate the fish and divide the salsa evenly. Serve immediately.

    Jeff doesn’t love salmon, but I bet I could get him to eat it with this topping. Sounds so flavorful!

    This looks amazing! I have everything for the sauce already other than the Dijon Mustard. Do you think I can use regular mustard?

      It would definitely have a different flavor profile, but I love regular mustard! I think it would be great – let me know what you think of it.
