Directions

  1. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source.
  2. Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the garlic and onion; cook and stir until the onion begins to soften, about 2 minutes. Add the red bell pepper, papaya, and habanero pepper. Continue cooking a few more minutes until the bell pepper begins to soften. Stir together the cornstarch, water, and 2 tablespoons of lime juice. Stir into the papaya sauce until thickened, stirring constantly. Keep the sauce warm over very low heat.
  3. Stir 1 tablespoon of lime juice together with the melted butter, and brush on the mahi mahi fillets. Place onto a broiler pan.
  4. Cook under the preheated broiler for 4 minutes, then turn the fish over, and continue cooking for 4 minutes more. Sprinkle the almonds over the fish and return to the broiler until the almonds are crisp and the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 2 minutes. Season to taste with salt and serve with the papaya sauce.

I made this for my family last night. I had to leave out the habanero because of the little ones, and omitted the salt. But, good fresh Mahi Mahi has some salt and I allowed my family to use it as they wished. (they always add more anyhow). All in all, it was great. No leftovers at all. Which is saying a lot for small children and picky husbands. I would recommend this to anyone who likes fish.

A lot of prep time and the taste was disappointing

This was ok, but not nearly as flavorful as I had imagined when I read the recipe. I might try it again with ginger worked in there a few places to add some zip.

I had to alter this recipe a good bit, but it turned out pretty tasty. I added pineapple, about 1/2 cup frozen chunks, as well as about 1/3 cup orange juice to the sauce, and removed the peppers (habanero and bell) due to little picky eaters. As the fish was broiling I added some frozen stir fry vegetables to the sauce, and turned up the heat for about 7 minutes to get a nice citrus-y stir fry to top the fish. Ended up with those little picky eaters asking for seconds. Success!
