Make the most of mahi mahi's great flavor by pairing it with a fruit salsa made from olive oil, mango, mango nectar, onion, cilantro, and lemon peel. See our full collection of fish recipes for more meal ideas.

How to Make It

Step 1

Mix soy sauce, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, and half the garlic.

Step 2

Cut fish into 6 or 8 equal pieces, then rinse and pat dry. Rub soy mixture all over fish. If making ahead, cover and chill up to 30 minutes.

Step 3

In an 8- to 10-inch frying pan over high heat, combine oil, onion, and remaining garlic. Stir until onion begins to get limp, about 2 minutes. Add mango nectar and 3 tablespoons lemon juice; stir until boiling.

Step 4

Remove onion mixture from heat. Stir in mango, cilantro, and lemon peel. Use hot or cool.

Step 5

Arrange fish pieces, side by side, in a wire grilling basket. Close basket and lay it on a barbecue grill over a solid bed of hot coals or high heat on a gas grill (you can hold your hand at grill level only 2 to 3 seconds). Close lid on a gas grill.

Step 6

Cook fish, turning once, until it is barely opaque and still moist-looking in thickest part (cut to test), 8 to 10 minutes total.

Step 7

Serve with salsa and lemon juice.

Chef's Notes

Notes: A hinged wire grilling basket makes the fish easier to handle. Otherwise, cook fish on a lightly oiled grill.
