Grilled Mahi Mahi with Olive Oil and Lemon Juice

A terrific grilled recipe that makes the fish the true hero of the dish.



  1. Cut Mahi Mahi into 4 pieces.
  2. Brush both sides of fish with olive oil and lemon juice. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, then rub garlic on fish.
  3. To grill, arrange fish on a grill rack or grill basket sprayed with olive oil cooking spray.
  4. Grill over medium-hot coals (or medium-high on gas) for 4-6 minutes per 1/2" thickness or until fish flakes easily. If fish is more than 1" thick, gently turn halfway through.
  5. To broil, arrange fish on broiler pan sprayed with cooking oil. Broil 4" from heat, same amount of time as grilling.
  6. Note: based on recipe from the South Beach Cookbook.

Tonight, I prepared this recipe- as is- for my family's dinner and was very happy with the results. Not only was I was surprised at how well the seasonings penetrated the fish I was also surprised that nobody asked for Tartar sauce.

Used tilapia, & sprinkled about a tablespoon of Panko crumbs on top of each fillet--gave it a nice crunch, & was very easy to make.

This was great :) I added 1/2 chopped mango and cilanto with the juice of a lime for a salsa topping... yum!

Fish isn't usually a fave of mine - but I had TWO servings of this recipe tonight! Plan on having this again soon.
