Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 20 mins
Total Time 0:35
Yields 4


    For the salsa

    • 1 mango, peeled and diced
    • 1/4 red onion, finely diced
    • 1/2 red bell pepper, finely diced
    • 1/2 jalapeño, seeded and finely diced
    • 1 avocado, peeled and diced
    • juice of 1 lime
    • 1/4 teaspoon of coarse sea salt

    For the rice

    For the fish


    1. Mix together salsa ingredients and place in fridge.
    2. Add chopped cauliflower to a food processor with the shredding attachment to “rice” the cauliflower.
    3. Place over large pot over medium heat, add coconut oil then add riced cauliflower. Add coconut milk/cream along with a little salt. Mix together to incorporate and let cook for 10-12 minutes or until soft. Once soft, add shredded coconut, mix, then turn down heat to low to keep warm.
    4. Add a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add butter and olive oil. Once very hot, pat mahi mahi dry and salt on both sides, then add to the pan and cook on both sides for 5-7 minutes. Do not crowd pan because that will make the fish steam instead of getting a nice crust on both sides. Cook in batches, if needed.
    5. Place mahi mahi on top of coconut rice, top with mango salsa and garnish with cilantro and shredded coconut.
