Ingredients:
-6 oz mahi mahi filet seasoned with cumin, lemon zest, chili powder, salt, & pepper

-1/2 bunch broccolini seasoned with 1 tsp olive oil, salt, pepper, & crushed red pepper

2) mix together the hot cooked quinoa with half of the pico de gallo (1/4 cup), taste & re-season if needed
3) while the fish is resting, grill the brocoolini until crisp-tender and hot
4) mixtogether the diced avocado with the remaining 1/4 cup pico de gallo
