Mahi Mahi is a delicious white fish that pairs well with bold flavors. Here are 14 easy and delicious Mahi Mahi recipes for you to choose from!

 

I am constantly on the lookout for new and innovative ways to cook with fish. One of my favorite types of fish is Mahi Mahi, a white fish that is well-paired with bold or spicy flavors.

 

I’ll often pick some up in the summertime, toss on some blackening rub and throw it on the grill. But there are so many other Mahi Mahi recipes out there and I thought I’d share a few of my favorites with you. Some of these I’ve made, others are simply on my list, but all look delicious!

after 29 yrs in Hawaii, Mahi Mahi is one of our favorite fish. Best sauce is a Peanut Coconut, or Thai Peanut Suace. Starting with a paste from peanuts,garlic, peppers and lime. Fry the paste and add coconut milk, br sugar, soy sauce, basil, you can put the sauce on anything!

Kristy, I am primarily a salmon fan, but I'm not married to it--anything I can get a good deal on is fine fish by me! Last night we grilled some swordfish steaks I found magically marked down. I kept it simple--but I'm glad for a round up like this because it helps me when I purchase a big hunk of fish and want a variety of flavors. Thanks!
