Just adding to the rave reviews. I cut the recipe in half as I had one piece of mahi and one piece of salmon in the freezer to use up. My husband and I loved this; it's just as good on the salmon as on the mahi. The brining really tenderized the fish so that it was succulent. I just used the same iron skillet in which I 'd cooked the bacon/tomato sauce to cook the fish, as I didn't want to bother with the grill or get another pan dirty. That made it so easy. We enjoyed this with steamed fresh spinach and some simple farro mixed with fresh basil.
I also used a grill pan. I wasn't blown away by this, thought it was just okay; to me, everything taste better when cooked on a charcoal grill and that may have made a difference here. Served with whole grain thin spaghetti and sautéed brussels sprouts.
Absolutely amazing. So simple but wonderful... I have made this 5 times in the past month! I always double the bacon-tomato butter and use it as a salad topping with some shaved peccorino. Delicious! I've also found it very easy (and just as delicious) to use pre-cooked bacon.
We thought this was delicious! We grilled the fish on a gas grill, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly.
Absolutely delicious! We ate this tonight and loved it. It's so quick and easy to make. This tomato sauce is out of this world good. There are so many uses for it other than this recipe - bruschetta topping, pasta sauce, etc.
Used a grill pan as well. Store was out of mahi mahi, so ended up using cod fish-Turned out yummy!
Very easy, very good summer dish. Nice idea for the short brine, helped keep the fish moist as it grilled. Loved the tomato-bacon topping, rich and sweet and great on the fish. Served with small side of pasta, green beans & freshly-made pesto.
The bacon-tomato butter is rich and flavorful and compliments the fish perfectly. I cooked the fish on a grill pan, and it turned out great.
A definite keeper. Easy to make, followed the recipe exactly. My husband said it was like something he would get in a restaurant. The bacon-tomato butter was SO much better than I had anticipated. Highly recommend this dish.
This was an excellent and easy dish. The only change I made was that since I don't eat pork, I left out the bacon. But I don't think that made a difference-the tomato butter was delicious! I would make this for guests in a heartbeat. Everything can be put together in the time it takes to grill the fish. Will definitely make again.
I didn't make the Mahimahi only the Bacon-Tomato Butter, which I served with Bon Appetite June 2010 Halibut Fish Sticks (excellent). The Bacon-Tomato Butter has wonderful flavor -- very easy and quick. Will definitely make again.
