Taste the Caribbean with this Mahi Mahi Recipe

Last week I was lucky enough to be able to take time for a little rest & relaxation in the caribbean. We visited Hondorus, Belize and Cozumel Mexico. As native a Floridan, I have an appetite for fresh seafood and it was so nice to enjoy fresh fish and lobster while away. This mahi mahi recipe by Emeals is a great way to enjoy the flavors of the caribbean in the comfort of your own home.
