  1. Skin fish, if necessary. Rinse fish and pat dry. Rub both sides of fish with seasoned pepper. In a large nonstick skillet cook the fish fillets in hot oil over medium-high heat for 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Reduce heat to medium-low. Carefully add margarita mix concentrate to skillet. Cook, covered, for 6 to 8 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Serve fish and sauce with rice.

This was good. I couldn't find frozen lime drink mix, so I used 1/3 of a cup of limeade beverage and added one fresh squeezed lemon. The poaching liquid makes a nice sauce over vegetables served with the mahi mahi.

This was the recipe I had been searching for! Just follow the recipe, don't overcook the fish and it comes out wonderful! I made it with the garlic asparagus and a box of garlic white and wild rice, delicious! Family loved it, will make again and again!

I didn't have frozen used liquid mix. I also used cajun spice instead of just cayenne pepper. And to accent the lime, when I covered the dish to poach I added a few slices of lime to the dish. It turned out excellent.

AMAZING! So simple, so yummy!! I left out the cayene for personal taste, but added salt and paprika before browning in oil. My whole family loves this recipe, including the kids!!! Thank you so much!

This recipe is very tasty, although, I found Mahi Mahi is a bit overpowering for the delicate flavor of the sauce. Tilapia works MUCH better. I give this 4 stars since it is intended it to be for Mahi, but I've done it with Tilapia and it is EXCELLENT. Also, to make it even more flavorful, I used Mrs. Dash Southwestern Chipotle seasoning in place of cayenne.

Very good flavor. Not crazy abut Mahi, will try again with Tilapia
