Low Fodmap Grilled Mahi-Mahi with Pineapple Salsa

My favorite part about summer? The gas grill. Throw on just about any meal, toss in a few sides and you’ve got yourself a winner.

Officially on my Make-It-Again List, this recipe gets all three stamps of approval.Grilled Mahi Mahi Pineapple Salsa

That’s right. This fish dish is gluten free, dairy free, and low fodmap! Not to mention full of omega 3’s, clean ingredients, and no sugar added! The combination of jalapenos, Cajun seasoning, and fresh pineapple gives it the perfect balance between sweet and spicy.

This is a great way to enjoy a healthy dinner today without the digestive pain tomorrow!

But enough about that. On to the important stuff.

Important to Note: most Cajun seasoning includes onion and garlic in the ingredient list, both of which are high fodmap. If these ingredients bother you, make your own Cajun spice mix following this recipe and omit the garlic and onion. You will still have plenty of spice and flavor from the  jalapeno and green onions in this recipe.


  • 4 (6 oz) Mahi-Mahi fillets
  • olive oil
  • 1 tsp Cajun seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1.5 cups fresh pineapple, chopped
  • 1/3 cup tomatoes, diced
  • 1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced
  • green onions (green part only)
  • 1 Tbsp fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 2 Tbsp rice vinegar


Add chopped pineapple, tomatoes, jalapeno, onions, cilantro, and rice vinegar together in a bowl. Set aside. Warning: a whole jalapeno can get pretty spicy. If you prefer less kick, add less jalapeno.


Preheat your gas grill to medium-high heat. We used a fish grill basket but you could probably cook these in foil packets or even on a small indoor grill. Use oil to keep from sticking to pan or grill if needed.

Spray thawed fish fillets with olive oil and lightly rub to coat. Mix spices together and rub onto both sides of the fillets. When your grill is ready, cook fish for a total of 5-7 minutes, flipping only once. Inside temperature should reach 145 degrees F. Fish should easily flake with a fork when done!


Serve pineapple salsa on top of Mahi-Mahi and add some jasmine rice for a delicious, healthy meal!
