Mahi Mahi on the grill
I am not generally very adventurous in the kitchen, save when a wild notion attacks me and I create something on a whim (sometimes something delicious like Chicken Squash Bake, but more often something only okay, never to be tried again).
I like the old standbys that consistently turn out good -- which is why we started this website back in 2006. I wanted this site to become an online collection of our favorite, most-requested, most-oft-eaten recipes: ones I ate as a child, and ones I make regularly now that I'm cooking for our own family. :)
My husband Joshua, however, loves to branch out in new ways, with lots of research along the way. Read his article about homemade bread and dough conditioners, for example. I was perfectly content with "normal" homemade bread that turned out "good"; Joshua wanted to experiment, and his research and knowledge has added a whole new dimension to the art of bread making in our home!
So... Ten months ago, I had never in my life tasted Mahi Mahi. I knew what it was a kind of fish, and clean (kosher), but that was all I knew.
When Joshua came across a frozen fish sale through his employer, he brought home 30 pounds of Mahi Mahi. Time to start experimenting!
It wasn't long before Joshua came up with this delicious recipe for Grilled Lemon-Garlic Mahi Mahi. Even I was surprised that this Mahi Mahi was rivalling my other favorite fish, grilled salmon!
The Mahi Mahi is quick to thaw, and seasoning the fillets takes just minutes. Ten minutes on the grill, and the fish is tender, flaky, and juicy!
We like to serve Grilled Lemon-Garlic Mahi Mahi over hot fresh cooked rice, with some vegetables or a salad completing a simple but delicious meal! Yehoshua (6) has declared Mahi Mahi to be his favorite meat and says it tastes like chicken to him. ;)
We've bought mahi mahi through Joshua's employer, but I know Costco carries the fillets in their frozen section (or they did last time I checked, several months ago). What is sold at Costco looks identical to what we have gotten, and I can attest that it is very good! :)
Have you eaten mahi mahi before?
What is your favorite fish? Personally, I just love salmon. It has such a good flavor! :)
