  • Grill


  • 1 cup grapefruit juice ruby red
  • 5 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 6 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • ½ tsp salt kosher coarse
  • ½ tsp black pepper ground
  • 1 yellow onion organic
  • 1 jalapeno pepper
  • 1 ½ lb dolphin fish (mahi mahi)
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 2 ½ tsp cumin ground
  • 1 avocado
  • ¼ cup cilantro
  • 1 mango



  • Whisk together the juice, ¼ cup vinegar, ¼ cup olive oil, honey, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add the onions and jalapeno, toss to coat and let sit at room temperature while you grill the fish.


  • Heat a grill (gas or charcoal) to medium-high heat.
  • Brush the fish on one side with canola oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper, the paprika and 2 teaspoons cumin.
  • Flip, brush the second side with canola oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Place the spice-rubbed side down on the grill, cover and cook until the first side is crusty and golden-brown, 5 to 6 minutes.
  • Flip and cook uncovered another 5 or so minutes, until just barely cooked through.
  • Place the fish on a platter and top with the onion mixture. Let the fish sit at room temperature for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  • While the fish cures, make the avocado and mango topping.


  • Put the avocado and mango in a large bowl.
  • Add the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, the remaining 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon cumin, the cilantro, and salt and pepper and toss gently to combine.


  • Scrape most of the onion mixture off the fish, spoon the mango mixture across the top, garnish with whole cilantro leaves and serve.
