Wonderful and easy. You can adjust all ingredients to taste. I usually serve with a salad and use reserve marinade as a dressing. When grilling, I flip often and continue brushing to obtain a strong flavor. Is also excellent as a stand-alone dressing.

Recipe Ingredients

  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced, or more to taste
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon spicy brown mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 (4 ounce) fillets mahi mahi

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  2. 2 Whisk lime juice, olive oil, garlic, soy sauce, mustard, salt, and pepper together in a bowl; brush over mahi mahi to coat.
  3. 3 Bake on the preheated grill for 5 minutes, flip, brush again with the lime juice mixture, and continue grilling until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 5 minutes more.

Chef's Notes

  1. I used this as the fish in a fish taco and used the white sauce in the fish taco recipe poured over the shredded cabbage over the fish inside a four tortilla- outstanding!
  2. I will try writing this again! This is a wonderful marinade for fish! I have used this exact recipe for around 3 years and finally decided to write a comment! Absolutely love it!
  3. We made this following the recipe and cooked it on an indoor grill. It smelled fantastic and made the whole house smell delicious, but we found the actual meal somewhat disappointing and a bit bland.
  4. Simple and delicious. I cooked it on a grill pan on the cooktop about 4-5 minutes each side.
  5. Loved it! It was mild and accented the Mahi flavor nicely. I will definitely be using it again.
  6. Awesome awesome awesome! Loved this! Made it with 2 Mahi Mahi filets and had marinade left over so I mixed it in with my rice. I had to broil it though because it was raining when I made it! Next time I will grill it! Thank you for sharing!!!
  7. It is always a challenge to find a meal all five of us like. All five of us loved this recipe. My sons loved the sauce and we ate every piece of Mahi Mahi. it was easy and delicious. Thank you for sharing!
  8. My husband and I really liked this! Easy and uses ingredients that we always have around. The recipe made more sauce than we really needed for the 2 of us so it could even be cut down a bit. Thanks!
  9. It was easy and really tasty. I made aome sauce with the dressing and added some veggies on the side. Wonderful! thanks for the recipe
