Grilled Mahi Mahi with Pineapple Green Rice

Ingredients
4
4 ounces fresh or frozen skinless mahi mahi fillets
1/4
teaspoon kosher salt
1/8
teaspoon ground black pepper
1
cup bottled salsa verde
2
tablespoons mayonnaise
1
tablespoons lime juice
1
tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2
1/2
cup chopped green sweet pepper
1/2
teaspoon kosher salt
2
cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2
cups vegetable or chicken broth
1
cup uncooked long grain white rice
2/3
cup chopped fresh pineapple
1/2
cup snipped fresh cilantro
1
large tomato, sliced into wedges and seasoned with salt and pepper
 
Lime wedges

Directions

  1. Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Sprinkle fish with 1/4 teaspoon salt and the pepper. Place fish in a resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish. In a small bowl combine 1/4 cup of the salsa verde, the mayonnaise, and lime juice. Add to bag. Seal bag and turn to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add onion, green pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon salt; cook for 2 minutes. Add the garlic; cook 30 seconds more. Stir in broth and the remaining 3/4 cup salsa verde; bring to boiling. Stir in uncooked rice. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes or until rice is tender.
  3. Remove pan from heat; remove lid. Cover pan with a clean kitchen towel; replace lid. Let stand for 5 minutes to let the towel absorb any excess moisture. Remove lid and towel. Add pineapple and cilantro, fluffing with a fork; keep warm.
  4. For a charcoal or gas grill, place fish on the greased rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat. Grill for 4 to 6 minutes per 1/2-inch thickness of fish or until fish begins to flake easily when tested with a fork. Serve fish with pineapple green rice, tomato wedges and lime wedges.
