Crusted Mahi Mahi with Citrus Salad

I am far from a chef but let me just say this Mahi Mahi citrus salad was delicious among many other things. It was light on my stomach yet still fulfilling, which helps my condition because too much food can easily trigger my IBS symptoms. The oranges were sweet and juicy which added a sweet element to this healthy and savory dish. The crunch from the breaded Mahi Mahi was just right and gives the salad a summer component since fried fish is usually served in the warmer seasons. If Mahi Mahi is not your favorite fish, then feel free to substitute with another fish or meat of your choice. Nonetheless, I think you’ll really enjoy this recipe!
