I made a macadamia nut crusted mahi-mahi with coconut milk last summer that was nice.

Blackened Mahi-Mahi is a wonderful dish. Buy a rub, make a rub (recipes abound), and make sure you have good ventilation. And make sure you have good ventilation.


Why yes, I did learn that the hard way. The fish was wonderful, but it took a while before you could go back in the kitchen without your eyes watering. Next time, I'm using the grill rather than a pan.

Marinate, then grill or broil. Delicious.

Thanks, that's what I figured. Will marinate and then broil.

I had fillets so didn't have to de-scale or remove the eyes :-D

I usually create a quick marinade that goes something like this:

10% Sesame Oil
70% Soy Sauce
10% Crushed Garlic
10% Brown Sugar
Salt and Pepper to taste

oh and make sure that the fish is as close to room temp as possible. Grill on a hot grill for 2 min each side. Should still be pink in the middle.

NAMOR, the percent breakdowns were helpful. I used all those ingredients except for the sugar, so I'll have to add those next time.

Here's my recipe.

Cook (boil) some buckwheat to 90% readiness. Layer the buckwheat, mahi-mahi and tomato slices in a lasagna pan, so that the buckwheat covers everything on top and bottom. Put cream cheese slices and some dill branches on top. Loosely cover the pan with tinfoil and bake on medium-low (I'd say ~400-450F) in the oven for about 20 minutes. Then, remove the tinfoil and keep baking it until ready or cream cheese turns light brown and crispy.

I'm not sure about the cooking times, I usually judge the readiness visually. In any case, it's rather hard to spoil this dish and it comes out nicely.
