Ingredients for the maple-glazed sweet potato:

Method for the fish:
Preheat oven to 425F and grease a large baking sheet.
Combine the cumin, chili powder, oregano, garlic powder, cinnamon and salt in a small bowl and mix with a fork to combine. Sprinkle over fish and rub spice mix evenly across the fillets.
Place on prepared sheet and bake in the oven for 12 to 15 minutes, or until fish flakes with a fork.
Place mahi-mahi on a serving platter and gently pull fillets apart with a fork.
Method for the slaw:
In a medium mixing bowl, toss the red cabbage with the zest, lime and orange juice, salt, pepper and cilantro. Set aside.
Method for the maple-glazed sweet potato:
Toss the sweet potato with the maple syrup and sprinkle with salt. In a skillet over medium-low heat, add the butter and then saute the sweet potato for about 10 minutes, or until potato is tender. Be sure to not burn it. Remove the sweet potato from the skillet, place it in a bowl, and set aside.
