  3. Toss to combine.

  4. Add apple cider vinegar OR fresh lemon juice.

  5. Add fresh basil and mix again.

  6. Serve as soon as the fish is cooked since it does not keep well.

  12. Mahi mahi is done when the center is opaque and the fish flakes easily.

  13. Transfer the fish to a plate.

  14. Since the salsa recipe only uses ¼ cup of tomatoes, you may add another ½-¾ cup of cherry tomatoes.

  15. Spoon the fresh fruit salsa on the side and enjoy!
