Next week I leave for my CAbi training for our new Fall line! I am so excited to see the new clothes and fill my closet with the Fall styles! You too can watch the fashion show, live, right from your living room. Here is the link to register!

This recipe is incredible. It is another from my new fav food blog, Half Baked Harvest.

Chipotle Mahi Mahi Bowls with Strawberry Mango Salsa
For Fish:
1 pound skin on Mahi Mahi
4 Tbsp olive oil
2 chipotle peppers in adobe sauce, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp smoked paprika
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp salt and pepper
1/4 tsp onion powder

Stir together all fish marinate ingredients.
Add Mahi Mahi, coat with marinate and place in the fridge while prepping other ingredients.
For coconut lime rice:
3/4 cups jasmine rice
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 cup water (or you can use coconut water)
1 Tbsp fresh cilantro
juice of 1/2 lime
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbsp coconut flakes
1/2 Tbsp coconut oil
Mix together coconut milk, coconut water, jasmine rice, coconut oil and salt. Cover and cook on a low boil until liquid is absorbed.
Turn heat off and allow rice to sit covered for 20 minutes. Then remove lid and mix in lime juice, coconut flakes and cilantro. Set aside.
For Strawberry Mango Salsa:
1 mango, peeled, pitted and diced
1 cup strawberries, chopped
1/4 chopped cilantro

This stuff is YUM!
Other ingredients you can used in the bowl:
Black beans-drain and rinse then heat in microwave for about 1 minute
Shredded lettuce

Heat grill to medium high heat. Add mahi mahi skin side facing up cook for 4-5 minutes. Then flip it and cook another 4-5 minutes. 
Grill corn while grilling salmon, turning every few minutes.
Remove both from grill.
Remove skin from the fish. Coarsely chop fish.
Set up your ingredients for creating a bowl. Layer bowls with Rice, lettuce, fish, beans, corn, sour cream, salsa, cheese, guacamole and chips!
It is a lot of ingredients but I swear it is worth it! These bowls are the bomb!!
