Marinated mahi-mahi with palm tree and passion fruit
Inspired by the tropical paradise that is Bali, this sustainable seafood dish is composed from a locally sourced fish in Bali, the mahi-mahi (which translates to Coryphaena hippurus in latin)
The fish is marinated with a blend of fresh and tangy ingredients such as lemon, lime juice, shallots chili, and lemon skin; making this a light summer dish that is easy to eat. The mahi-mahi is then cut into small pieces and served with the heart of palm trees, green mangos, and passion fruit seed and syrup, with no added sugar.
