Grilled Mahi Mahi

I found some frozen wild caught Mahi Mahi fillets at Costco recently for a really great price!  If you don't mind buying frozen (I don't) and you don't feel like breaking the bank on salmon or wild shrimp- give Mahi Mahi a shot.  It has a really light, non-fishy flavor that can fit in with pretty much any flavor profile.  It's also really hearty & easy to cook on the stovetop.

Here's my recipe for a simple Mahi Mahi that's lightly seasoned & grilled to perfection.  
... Enjoy!

  • Mahi Mahi filets
  • avocado oil*
  • paprika
  • garlic powder
  • salt & pepper
*Coconut oil is great too!

  1. Lay the fillets out on a flat surface (I use a cutting board), and sprinkle them with a light, even coating of paprika, garlic powder, salt, & pepper.  Pat the spices in to help them stick.
  2. Heat a grill pan on the stove to medium high heat, and drizzle with avocado oil.  
  3. Place the fillets onto the grill pan- seasoned side down.
  4. Sprinkle spices onto the second side of the fish while they cook.
  5. Cook for 5-6 minutes, or until the fish is cooked about 1/2 way through & looks browned on the bottom side.
  6. Flip the fillets using a large spatula or tongs, and continue cooking for about 3 minutes (the fish will feel slightly firm to the touch once it's cooked through).
  7. Serve with cauliflower rice or veggies of your choice!

cast iron pan said...

I love this cast iron pan it comes in a really nice package, and it is good quality. I have used it about five times, and it is still going strong. I put it in the oven and cook with it on the stove top. This is my first cast iron pan of any sort and I really like how they include instructions on how to care for the pan.
