MY REVIEW

My 12-year-old son loved this. He likes tilapia but this mahi-mahi is excellent and we all enjoyed this salsa. It's very refreshing coming off the grill for the summertime.

This recipe is delicious and so quick to prepare. Since we are watching our calories it fits right into our diet. It's definitely a keeper.
