Mahi Mahi with Nectarine Salsa

A ripe nectarine inspired me to put together a fruity salsa to serve with fish fillets. I received six thumbs up from our three children for this easy, nutritious main dish. —Michelle Augustine, Cincinnati, OH

Directions

  • For salsa, in a small bowl, combine the first nine ingredients. Cover and refrigerate until serving.

Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
