Found this recipe in a Taste of Home Grill It! cookbook that I purchased at a yard sale. Excellent recipe, so quick and easy! The tropical salsa paired beautifully with the mahi mahi.

This is a healthy delicious meal for the summer with the added bonus of not having to use the oven in August! I serve it with an almond coconut rice in the side.

Tropical Fruit Salsa got a little pricey with all the ingredients but was delicious.

DELICIOUS! Very easy to make. I doubled up my mango because I did not have any papaya. I used canned pineapple. I will try to use the fresh one next time although we like the salsa. I boiled the marinade then used it to blanch some fresh spinach which I used as bed for the grilled Mahi mahi. Thank you for sharing.

This was the perfect combination of sweet and spicy. If you want an even quicker recipe use canned Dole tropical fruit.

Great recipe! Couldn't find a papaya anywhere so I tried Craisins instead turned out great, but I will definitely try it again with the correct ingredients.

sauteed this delicious meal on the stovetop(after marinating the fish). And I used a can of tropical fruit(drained), put it in the lemon & lime juices
