  • 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.

This recipe comes from Weight Watchers, and, shock of all shocks, the portions weren’t of the usual minuscule variety. Chris says: I love the crust on […]
