How do I make an entrée salad?

First, start by tossing together the salad: spinach mix, grapefruit, pepper, celery and pistachios. Set aside.

Next, mix together the dressing: grapefruit juice, honey, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Set aside.

Next, cook the fish: Sautee in a skillet or grill pan, with salt and pepper to season. Whisk together the glaze: grapefruit juice, honey, brown sugar, garlic, salt and pepper. As the fish cooks, continually coat the fish with the glaze.

Once the fish is done cooking, assemble the salad on plates, dress and toss the salad and top with the cooked fish.

How can you tell when mahi mahi is done?

Mahi mahi has almost no fat, so it will cook rather quickly. Sear for a few minutes on each side over medium-high heat. It will be done when if flakes with a fork and is white in color all the way through.

What does grapefruit taste good with with?

The grapefruit in this salad is absolutely the star of the dish!  Not only does it pair perfectly with the spinach, yellow bell pepper, celery and pistachios, its a wonderful way to liven up an ordinary salad with some lovely color and flavor.  

I also used fresh squeezed grapefruit juice to make the dressing for the salad, which adds a fantastic complimentary flavor to the salad.

Where do I get mahi mahi?

The frozen food section of your grocery store is usually the best, most economical place to get mahi mahi. I’ve also found that Costco has the best price when it comes to mahi mahi, wild caught salmon and raw shrimp.
