Mahi Mahi with Mango Salsa, Roasted New Potatoes and Asparagus - Serves 4

I love fish. Mahi Mahi is one of my favorites. Other than Central Market (or any high end grocery store), Costco is the BEST for seafood. I bought this fish, serving 6 for $21. Central Market would have charged me at least $20 more.

4 6oz Mahi Mahi filets
Kosher salt
Fresh pepper
Olive Oil
1 bunch asparagus
1/2 cup sea salt (or Morton salt)
6 large new potatoes, halved, then quartered
Garlic powder
Kosher salt/pepper
1 avacado, peeled and diced
1 medium mango, peeled and diced
4 tbs of whatever salsa you have in the fridge

Preheat oven to 400. Bring pot of water to a boil, adding 1/4 cup of sea salt. Toss prepared potatoes in a large bowl with a splash of olive oil, Kosher salt, garlic powder and pepper. Spread on a foil lined baking sheet and bake 20 minutes or until done.

Add asparagus to the boiling salted water and boil for ONLY 3 minutes. Drain in colander and cover with ice. Rinse with cold water and set aside. (This is called blanching.)

Season fish with salt, pepper and olive oil. Heat non stick skillet over medium heat. Add fish and cook about 4 to 5 minutes each side. Meanwhile, mix avacado, mango and salsa in a medium bowl. Set aside.

Add drained asparagus to skillet, when fish is turned, the last 4 to 5 minutes. Remove potatoes from oven. Plate with asparagus, top with fish and add mango salsa. Serve and enjoy!
