Grilled Mahi Mahi

Grilled Mahi Mahi
Serving Size:Serves 2


2 Frozen Mahi-Mahi Fillets – defrosted and damped dry with a paper towel to remove any moisture

3 Tbs. Soy Sauce

1 Tbs. Mirin (optional)

1 Tsp. Sesame Oil

1 Tsp. Sesame Seeds (optional)

1 Tbs. Chopped Cilantro

Ground White Pepper to Taste

Juice of 1 Lime


Mix all of the marinade ingredients except the lime juice in a small bowl.

Place the fish fillets in a shallow 9×9 glass pan and pour the marinade over it making sure that the top and bottom of the fish are covered.  Marinate for about an hour turning once to make sure the fish gets the marinade on both sides.

With 15 minutes left before cooking, light your gas grill and heat on high and then add the lime juice to the marinating fish.

When ready to cook brush a neutral flavored oil (like Grapeseed) on both sides of the fish and place the pieces directly over the high heat on the grill.  Cook on one side for about 4 minutes and turn it over for about another 3 minutes.  Serve immediately as it will rest while adding the side ingredients to the plate.

I served this with brown Basmati rice with a shot of soy sauce and a simple salad made with lettuce, tomatoes and cucumber dressed with salt and pepper, rice vinegar and avocado oil.  On the side I served sliced avocado and tomatillo mango salsa.  Totally delicious.
