After 28 days on Dr. Oz's Salt Detox Challenge, Chef Andy is sharing his delicious (and salt-free) recipes.

Grilled Mahi on Chopped Salad


1/2 cucumber, peeled, seeded and highly sliced

1 cup marinated artichoke hearts, drained and coarsely chopped

3/4 cup finely diced red bell pepper

4 tablespoons thin sliced sweet onion

3 cups thinly shredded Romaine lettuce

2 cups Mache or arugula leaves

1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh basil

3 tbsps lemon or lime juice

2 tbsps extra virgin olive or grape seed oil

1/4 tsp kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper 


1 1/2 pound mahi-mahi fillet

2 teaspoons olive oil or grape seed oil

Freshly ground black pepper


To prepare salad and dressing, prepare cucumber, artichoke hearts, bell pepper, sweet onion, lettuce, mache or arugula and basil. Place in a bowl with the greens on top, cover with a paper towel and refrigerate.

Combine lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper in a small jar. Refrigerate until ready to use. Shake before using.

To prepare fish: About 15 minutes before cooking, remove fish from refrigerator and cut into serving pieces. Brush olive oil fish and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Preheat grill until very hot; lightly oil grill.

Place fish, flesh side down, on grill and cook 12 minutes per inch of thickness, or until just cooked through. Turn halfway through cooking time. (Or bake fish in a preheated 450 degree oven about 12 minutes per inch of thickness, or until cooked through.)

When the fish is almost finished, toss salad with most lemon dressing and divide among plates. Remove fish from over; cut into large chunks and remove skin. (It should come off easily.) Place fish on top of salad, but don't toss. Drizzle with remaining lemon dressing and serve immediately.
