Grilled Ginger Infused Mahi-Mahi with Mango Salsa

Tuesday night’s Grilled Mahi-Mahi dinner was caught off the coast of Hatteras NC by my husband Barry’s and his buddy Ralph  during their week of male bonding and fishing!  I’m super excited to have fresh Mahi-Mahi, Grouper, and Golden Pile fish in the freezer!
