Roasted Mahi Mahi with Orange Salsa

This recipe is from Woman's Day magazine. I made it for dinner last night. It originally called for halibut, but our store didn't have any so I bought mahi mahi instead. The salsa was really good, especially since I had these amazing Cara Cara oranges that are almost red inside. They were so pretty and delicious! I might make it to eat with chips or something because it was yummy. But in general, this meal was a disappointment. I need the fish to be more covered-up for me to enjoy it. So. Not going to make it again!

Roasted Mahi Mahi with Orange Salsa
1 small red onion, quartered and thinly sliced crosswise
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 navel oranges, peeled and diced
2 pickled jalapeno peppers, chopped
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

Four 3/4-in-thick pieces halibut filets (6 to 8 oz each)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Olive oil nonstick spray

1. For the salsa: Toss onion with lemon juice in a medium bowl. Let stand at least 30 minutes, then stir in remaining ingredients.

2. Heat oven to 500 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil (for easy cleanup). Place fish on sheet; season with salt and pepper. Coat tops with nonstick cooking spray.

3. Roast 10 minutes or until cooked through. Serve with orange salsa.

Makes 4 servings.
