Mahi Mahi. A white, flaky and delicious fish. For those who are “fish sensitive” as in sensitive to a strong flavor or scent, Mahi Mahi is a great choice. I would definitely recommend substituting it when a recipe calls for Tilapia. I am not a huge fan of tilapia, because most of the time it is farm raised in a toxic environment. If you can spare a few extra bucks, make the swap! You won’t be sorry. 🙂
Below is a simply delicious (and quick) way to prepare Mahi Mahi.
Citrus Herb Marinated Mahi Mahi
1/2 cup Olive Oil
1-2 cloves fresh Minced Garlic
1/8 tsp ground Black Pepper
1/8 tsp Cayenne Pepper
Juice of 1/2 Lemon
Pinch of grated Lemon Zest
Dash of No Salt Seasoning (Mrs. Dash is great)
Combine all ingredients and marinate fish for at least 20 min; no longer than 35 (or the fish begins to cook).
Grill fish approx. 4 minutes on each side, or until it flakes easily with a fork. (I use a grill pan sprayed with PAM).
Squeeze additional lemon for extra juiciness.
Serve over a salad or with healthy steamed veggies and enjoy a light meal!
