When it comes to fresh seafood, Mahi Mahi is an excellent option. Since Summer is coming on quick, what better taste combination than sweet and tropical mixed with market-fresh fish?

This recipe is an ode to those flavors. Mahi Mahi seasoned, grilled, and topped with our Sweet and Spicy Pineapple Salsa.

If you aren’t a fan of fresh salsa on fish, homemade tartar sauce, dill sauce, or homemade remoulade sauce taste just as good!

Last weekend we posted a pineapple jalapeno salsa recipe as a stand-alone recipe and explained it would be included in an upcoming post.

As promised, we paired it with grilled Mahi Mahi or dolphin as it is known on East coast of Florida.

The spices we selected add to the tropical feel of this dish.

Ginger and cayenne compliment the pineapple jalapeno salsa as well. Which, in turn, helps to add sweet acidity to the meaty steak-like fish.

Once the salsa is made, preparing the fish only takes about 15 minutes from start to finish. When accompanied by a vegetable side or brown rice, this is a low-calorie, high protein meal option.

In regards to instructions, there isn’t a whole lot to the recipe. All you have to do to cook the fish is coat it with the olive oil, sprinkle it with the spices, and cook it on a grill for about five to seven minutes on each side.

That’s it, top it with the salsa and serve it with a side. In closing, I wish everyone a long life, love everlasting, and a full belly!

Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 8 Ounces Mahi-Mahi, (fresh or frozen and thawed)
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 3/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Ground Ginger
  • 1/8 Teaspoon Ground Cayenne Pepper

Instructions

  1. First, preheat a skillet or cast iron griddle over medium-high heat.
  2. Next, coat the fish with olive oil and apply the seasonings. The oil will help the seasonings stick to the fish.
  3. Then, cook the mahi-mahi in the preheated skillet for five to seven minutes on each side. If the fish is not entirely cooked, add one or two more minutes with the fish covered.
  4. Once the entree has cooked, remove it from the heat and plate it. Lastly, top it with one or two tablespoons of our Sweet and Spicy Pineapple Jalapeno Salsa and serve with your favorite side dish!

Notes

Calorie count does not include any additional side dishes. The calorie count is only for the fish and the pineapple salsa and not for the addition of rice. Recipe serves two people with four ounces of mahi-mahi each and approximately one tablespoon of salsa on each piece of fish. Our Sweet and Spicy Pineapple Jalapeno Salsa can also be found here.
