Explosion of flavor. Great sides for this dish would include small red potatoes baked with garlic and onions in a mixture of olive oil and butter or grilled zucchini or any other type of squash you like.

Recipe Ingredients

  • ½ cup lemon juice
  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh spearmint
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • ⅓ teaspoon garlic, minced
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 4 (5 ounce) mahi mahi fillets

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Rinse mahi mahi fillets and pat dry with paper towels.
  2. 2 Prepare a marinade by stirring lemon juice, olive oil, oregano, spearmint, lemon zest, garlic, and salt together in a baking dish just big enough to accommodate the fillets without overlapping. Lay the mahi mahi fillets into the marinade.
  3. 3 Marinate fish in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, turn, and continue marinating another 30 minutes.
  4. 4 Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  5. 5 Remove fillets from marinade and shake to remove excess. Discard remaining marinade.
  6. 6 Cook fillets on hot grill, but not directly over flame, to seal in moisture, about 15 seconds per side. Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking fish away from flame until the flesh flakes easily with a fork, 12 to 15 minutes.

  2. as far as fishiness is was not to pronounce and especially good with raw green salads!!:)
  3. This is a great Friday night dish! I picked up fresh mahi mahi on my way home from work prepped the marinade and enjoyed a glass of wine with dear hubby before he fired up the grill. Lovely subtle taste and perfectly cooked fish made this one a keeper! Sorry for the slightly blurry picture - Read more ...
