This one gets the grownup's vote for favorite mahi mahi recipe when under the gun. The kids still prefer it fried with panko breadcrumbs.


  • 1 cup red onion, charred and chopped
  • 1/4 cup diced red pepper
  • 1/2 cup mango puree
  • 1 quart diced mango
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • Dash of coarse ground pepper
  • Enough fresh mahi mahi steaks for six people

Peel and slice the red onion into two or three large pieces. Char pieces on a grill. Then remove, and rough chop into 1/4" pieces.

Dice the mango and red pepper.

Stir mango, red pepper, and mango puree together add a dash of coarse ground pepper.

Before serving, heat in microwave or on stovetop for three minutes, then add scallion and cilantro.

Not much to this, really. Lightly salt and pepper the mahi mahi on both sides. Depending on size of your filets, grill six to eight minutes per side over med-high heat. Make sure not to overcook; fish should still be moist when you poke it with a fork, and flake easily.
