Grilled Mahi Mahi


This is a quick and easy grilled Mahi Mahi with a nice mix of lime and cilantro. While perfect all by itself these Mahi Mahi fillets are fantastic in fish tacos.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 32 minutes

Yield: Serves 4


  • 4 6-ounce mahi mahi fillets
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons minced ginger
  • 2 tablespoons oil*
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • salt and black pepper to taste


Combine all ingredients (except the fish) in a ziptop bag. Add mahi mahi fillets. Turn to coat. Place in refrigerator for 20 minutes. Preheat grill to high and thoroughly clean the cooking grate. Remove fillets from marinade and hold on to the marinade. Place fish fillets on grill. Grill for about 6 minutes or until the side opaque. Flip and pour a little of the reserved marinade on the cooked side. Continue grill for an additional 6 minutes or until the fish flakes easily through the middle. Remove from the grill and serve immediately.

*Choose an oil with a high smoke point.
