Grilled Mahi Mahi with Pan-Roasted Corn Salsa and Black Beans


This recipe from Mccormick & Schmick’s Seafood Restaurant Cookbook was deeeelicious and a great summer meal. We needed the grill on for the fish anyway, so we grilled the corn on the cob for the pan salsa. The recipe as written in the book uses a lot more butter and store-bought salsa, but we had just received tomatillos in our CSA box so I decided to make a roasted tomatillo salsa and use that instead.

Hey, it’s Black Bean Mountain!

Chris says:

Yes, but look what you get to eat at the summit.

Lisa says:

Mmmm… if only this was served at the top of *real* mountains…

Chris says:

Pretty good, huh? That corn salsa is good, and I’m glad I made that tomatillo salsa to go with.

Lisa says:

Yeah I’m a big fan of this one.

Chris says:

Can’t really go wrong with grilled fish — well, unless you overcook it…

Lisa says:

…which you didn’t, so no worries.

Chris says:

I heart summer!
