Grilled Mahi Mahi

Grilling out is our favorite way of cooking here in South Florida. And we are so lucky because we can do it all year long. We always have to laugh because it seems whenever we say aloud that we are going to grill that evening it rains. Coincidence? I don’t think so!

Grilling is also the best way to fix all the fresh Florida fish that are available to us. It’s not only healthier to cook on the grill but lends that tasty smoky flavor to the fish. We like to grill just about anything we can get down here, salmon is our favorite like in these awesome fish tacos, then there’s Key West pinks, that’s shrimp to you, for our shrimp and chorizo skewers, not to mention grilled lobster, which we used to dive for when lobster season was open.

Today’s recipe has one of the most popular and prolific fish in our Florida waters, mahi mahi, or dolphin. And no, it’s not the Flipper kind on dolphin. I can remember when that was my kids first question when I served it. 🙂

It’s a mild fish and very flaky and works well with many types of toppings but our favorite is always pineapple salsa. It’s made fresh, has a nice sweet but slightly tangy taste, and just enhances the overall flavor of the fish.

So, what are you waiting for? It’s the perfect night for grilling and you only need 15 minutes to marinate the fish and you’re ready to go. A quick and easy meal that makes the perfect weeknight dinner. Serve with rice or quinoa and a side ear of corn. Enjoy!
