Grilled Mahi-Mahi

grilled mahi-mahi with spaghetti squash

Are you looking to up your grilling game? If so, grilled mahi-mahi might be something you want to try.

What is mah-mahi, you may ask? Well, it is fun to say, or at least I think it is. Try it. Mahi-mahi. See!

Mahi-mahi is a type of fish, that is very tasty, and much easier to grill than you might expect. The meat is white, slightly sweet, and firm. The texture is closer to crab, or almost a steak, rather than some other white fish such as Basa.

I usually stay away from grilling fish, because of how delicate it can be, but with mahi-mahi, grilling it is the way to go I think. I keep the recipe simple when I grill it, so if you are looking to impress your guests, or if you want to up your grilling game, or just want to try something new, try grilling some mahi-mahi!

Next time you have some guests over, and want to show off a bit, try serving them grilled mahi-mahi!

Note about cooking times:

Depending on the thickness of your fillets, and the heat of your grill, the cooking times may vary.  The fillet is done when it reaches 140°F, and it begins to flake when poked with a fork.
