Looking to lighten your meals up, grilled Mahi Mahi or your fish of choice topped with an explosion of fresh-tasting salsa.

1 yellow zucchini or yellow squash
Kosher salt
2 tomatoes, diced
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
1/2 jalapeno pepper, minced (remove seeds for less heat)
Juice of 2 limes
2/3 cup packed fresh cilantro (leaves and tender stems), chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 1/2 teaspoons ground coriander
8 skinless mahi mahi or striped bass fillets (about 6 ounces each)
Extra-virgin olive oil, for brushing
Freshly ground pepper

Quarter the zucchini lengthwise, then thinly slice with a knife or mandoline. Transfer to a colander set over a bowl and toss with 1/2 teaspoon salt. Let drain 15 minutes.

Combine the zucchini, tomatoes, red onion, jalapeno, lime juice, and half of the cilantro in a bowl. Set aside for 1 hour.

Preheat a grill to medium-high. Mix the cumin and coriander in a small bowl. Brush the fish all over with olive oil, then rub with the spice mixture and season generously with salt and pepper. Grill the fish until it is well marked and releases easily from the grill, about 4 minutes. Flip the fish and continue cooking until firm, 2 to 4 more minutes, depending on the thickness. Transfer to a platter.

Stir the remaining cilantro into the zucchini mixture and season with salt. Spoon over the fish.
