If you are a fish lover, this dish will knock your socks off! If you are not a fish lover, you need to try mahi mahi because its probably the least "fishiest" in taste, texture, and smell. Mahi mahi provides tons of health benefits and it's a great way to get in your lean protein. I try to eat fish at least a few times each week and it helps me maintain my weight. The cajun rub is the best part and it gives you a bit of heat while the mango salsa is sweet and tangy. This combination is absolutely amazing and you'll love how fresh and amazingly flavorful it tastes!
