This recipe is great either on the grill or in the oven broiler. The tomatoes give it a little bite. My entire family loves it, even my pickiest eater. In the winter I make this dish in my oven or broiler. The amounts I gave are approximate. I use two cans of tomatoes when I want more ‘bite,’ only one can when I want less. I like a lot of garlic so I generally use a lot.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 5 pounds skinned, deboned mahi mahi, cut into chunks
  • ¾ (4.5 ounce) jar bottled minced garlic
  • ½ cup butter, diced
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 ½ lemons, juiced

  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 ounces shredded pepperjack cheese

  2. 2 Place mahi mahi in an aluminum foil pan, and toss with the garlic to coat. Distribute butter evenly throughout pan. Spread onions over fish.

  1. I really liked this mahi recipe I didn't have any wine so I used tequila and made my own tomato sauce with garlic and onions. I also used oj (had no more lemons). It turned out very good! The fish had plenty of flavor.
  2. I used tequilla instead of wine and it was FANTASTIC!! I didn't feel like opening a full bottle of wine for the small amount needed in the recipe.
  3. This was fantastic but I do have some tips: drain almost all the juice before adding the wine and lemon cook for 30 minutes instead of 35 - it was a bit overdone you can just use aluminum foil instead of an aluminum pan and be cautious if you are a wuss like me...this was - Read more ...
  4. I used mahi mahi filets and my oven's broiler. Perhaps I screwed up but other than those modifications I followed the recipe exactly. Sorry.:(
  5. I scaled this down for 2 people, since I only had a half pound of fish. I basically just dumped the ingredients on top of the fish, sealed it over with foil and stuck it under the broiler. It was really good! My husband loved it!
  6. We really enjoyed this recipe. I used Mahi Mahi filets instead of cutting the fish into chunks and the fish was frozen when I put it into the foil. I did not put on the pepper jack cheese at the end. Instead I served the fish over rice and grated fresh Parmesan cheese over the - Read more ...
  7. My husband needed a Mahi Mahi recipe fast, so we looked online and found this one. We both were so amazed at how wonderful the flavor is! He only had two fillets, and he kept the fillets whole and did not cube them. He used about three cloves of fresh garlic instead of the stuff - Read more ...
  8. Excellent and very different fish recipe. I made a few changes: 1) Used olive oil instead of butter--was good but next time I will try the butter (or do half and half oil and butter). 2) Did not have jarred garlic so used garlic powder 3) Used bottled lemon juice as I did not have - Read more ...
  9. Well it was 39 degrees outside and raining so I decided to cook this dish in the oven. I used a covered casserole and baked for about 30 minutes at 425. I cut the recipe down for 4 people but used one whole 14.5 oz. can of diced tomatoes-- didn't have the kind with green - Read more ...
  10. I don't want to rate this, because I was the one who submitted it..(smile)..For some reason one ingredient was not added. Onions, and lots of them. I usually use one of those really big ones, diced and spread all over the fish before the tomatoes. I am really glad you enjoyed this, because it really - Read more ...
