Mahi mahi has combination of flavors, spices in this Buckhead Diner recipe

We’ve enjoyed the Chili-Spiced Mahi Mahi with Smoked Tomato Grits and avocado guacamole many times at the Buckhead Diner. The combination of flavors and the spices, sweet mahi, smoked tomatoes, grits and avocado on top hit the spot! We can’t get enough of this! — Gary Margol, Marietta

This perennial customer favorite is often offered as a special. It’s the creation of chef Charlie Schwab. In our photo, the grits and mahi mahi are sitting on a bed of fire-roasted tomato salsa.
