Preheat oven to 450°F.
Quinoa: Heat 1/2 tablespoon olive oil in small saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook 3 minutes, until tender. Pour in chicken broth; bring to boil. Stir in quinoa, reduce heat and simmer, covered, 20 minutes, until tender and liquid is absorbed.
Sauce: Combine salsa, avocado, cilantro, mayonnaise, lime juice and 1/4 teaspoon salt in food processor; pulse until smooth. Set aside.
Asparagus: Place on baking sheet and toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Bake 10 minutes, until tender and lightly browned.
Mahi Mahi: Heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Pat fish dry with paper towel. Season fish on both sides with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and cumin. Cook 5 minutes, turn and continue cooking 4 to 5 minutes, until firm (145°F).
Serve fish with about 1/2-cup sauce, quinoa and asparagus.
Leftover sauce makes a great dressing for a salad or grain bowl.
