Place flesh side down first on a preheat grill or grill pan on medium high heat and grill on each side for about 3 to 5 minutes. Cooking times will vary depending on the thickness of the fish and the type of grill you are using. To plate, add sliced limes and place fish on top and add salsa. Make it a decadent meal by making rice made with lite coconut milk instead of broth or water.
