4 6-ounce pieces mahimahi, skin removed
1 teaspoon plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and pepper
1 grapefruit
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons honey
2 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced
2 bunches watercress, thick stems removed
1 avocado, cut into chunks


Prep: 20 Minutes

Heat a grill or grill pan to medium-high.

Rub the mahimahi with 1 teaspoon of the oil and season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Grill until cooked through and opaque, about 5 minutes per side, depending on the thickness.

Meanwhile, cut away the peel and white pith of the grapefruit with a knife and slice the fruit into 1/4-inch rounds.

In a small bowl, combine the remaining oil, lime juice, honey, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon pepper, and scallions.

Divide the watercress, avocado, and grapefruit among individual plates. Place the mahimahi on top and drizzle with the lime dressing.
