I loved this recipe. My bf and I made this with frozen vaccuum sealed Mahi and I didn't think it was going to be that great but even with the frozen fish it was fantastic. I followed the recipe exactly and thought it was wonderful. I don't have a big sweet tooth and thought the brown sugar was going to be a little much but it just carmelizes the onions and has a subtle hint of sweetness. Great with brown rice and a salad. We will definitely be making this again. Read More

My husband suggested mahi mahi last night, so I went on the hunt for an easy recipe...I purchased cubed fresh pineapples and cut up mango to make it easier..(next time I will go with mango salsa to save prep time)..all in all took about 40 minutes between preparation and cooking time. Looked absolutely gourmet and was cooked to perfection. I followed the recipe closely (just added fresh pineapple verses canned) and it wasn't too spicy with a touch of sweetness.. "tastes like it came out of a restaurant" was my husbands comment and he wanted more when we were finished! Thank you for this fantastic recipe! Read More

This was a very easy accompaniment to the mahi but I changed it slightly due to the ingredients I had on hand. I added diced jalapeno and used crushed pineapple frozen mango chunks and omitted the red wine because I didn't have any. Read More

This was super! I made my own blackening spices. The mango/pineapple salsa would also be great on chicken salmon and even pork. Will be adding this to my recipe box. Read More

Whole family loved it and it was pretty simple. I'd never made fruit salsa anything blackened or Mahi Mahi but it all worked great; it's now a special-occassion favorite! I used Toms Blackened Seasoning from this sight. Read More

Delicious! I made it exactly as written using a blackening seasoning mix I had premade. Like another reviewer I used frozen mahi mahi steaks. I served them with with coconut rice sweet potatoes and broccoli florets for a tasty easy meal. My husband and 13 year old loved it. Definitely a keeper! Read More

I only made the salsa and found it simple to make and sweet. A little too sweet for me so I suggest only adding 1 TBSP of brown sugar initially then adding more after the pineapple and mango have been added until it meets your preference. I served this with a white fish and it added flavor to a bland fish. Read More

My wife was leaving for work and I asked her what she wanted for dinner and she jokingly said "blackened mahi mahi with mango salsa". So I looked this up; made it; and she thought it was the best thing she ever ate! It really was great and will definitely make it again. Read More
