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.
- Mahi Mahi filets
- avocado oil*
- garlic powder
- salt & pepper
*Coconut oil is great too!
- 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.
- Heat a grill pan on the stove to medium high heat, and drizzle with avocado oil.
- Place the fillets onto the grill pan- seasoned side down.
- Sprinkle spices onto the second side of the fish while they cook.
- Cook for 5-6 minutes, or until the fish is cooked about 1/2 way through & looks browned on the bottom side.
- 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).
- Serve with cauliflower rice or veggies of your choice!
