Mahi Mahi and Tacos

So a friend of mine through one of the cooking pages I am a part of on facebook happens to have a grapefruit tree- and well I love fresh right off the tree grapefruit. So from her picking them, putting them in a box, they came in 2 days.

It came down to planning a meal around the usage of some really fresh grapefruit…so what better then cooking up some fish- and I went with Mahi-mahi.

Easy enough, I basted the filets with some oil, sprinkled on some black-garlic salt, threw on a few slices of fresh cut grapefruit, some red onion slices and some rosemary branches. I then took this, wrapped in parchment and tossed on the grill.

While that was happening, I took a mango, peeled and diced it. Similarily, I diced up a few apricots. I threw both of these in a pan which was already heated with some oil, diced garlic clove, and some sweet onion. I let this mixture cook until the fruit was nice and soft. In a bowl, I had diced up a few tomatoes (cold from refrigeration) and when the fruit mix was to my liking I tossed it in with the tomato to make my version of a mango-apricot salsa.

From there, I just cut up some radishes, orange peppers, and spinach leaves. When the fish was done on the grill, I cut it into smaller strips and then it was time to piece together the tacos and chow down.

Time to relax... Grapefruit Margarita

After a long day, I wanted something a little different so I went with a grapefruit margarita. Since I had grapefruits in the refrigerator all I needed to do was juice one, add in the tequila, triple sec, squeezed half a lime, added in some ancho chili powder, and shook it with some ice. Added a nice gold sugar rim and was ready to drink.
