Bahamian Mahi Mahi

"This is an authentic Bahamian recipe I was given on Bimini many years ago. This goes well with a nice salad, garlic bread and a bottle of good German white wine. If you like fish you will not have any leftovers!"

  1. Arrange the fish fillets in an oven proof 9x13 glass baking dish. Pour the rum and lime juice over the fish and place a slice onion on each fillet. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  3. Remove fish from the refrigerator and pour off about 3/4 of the liquid. Leave the onion slices in the dish and place a thick slice of lemon on each fish fillet. Sprinkle with oregano and black pepper to taste. Place a pat of butter or margarine on each fillet.
  4. Bake, covered, at 350 degrees F (165 degrees C) for about 20 to 30 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Be careful not to over cook the fish or it will be dry. Serve with the cooked onion and lemon slices.

I'm sorry, but we did not care for this recipe. It was bitter and sour. Mahi Mahi is one of my families favorite seafood dish and we all left half the fish on our plates - not a good sign.

A beautiful presentation with the lemons on the fish and sprinkled with the oregano. I served the fish with rice and a spinach/strawberry salad. Nice flavor on the fish, next time I will...

I have to agree, it was quite sour. The rum overwhelmed the delicate flavor of the fish. It was not well liked by the family. Sorry!

After reading slot of the reviews I saw what the major problems and was able to fix them: First the very bitter taste. The best way to balance the bitter is to add sugar I added about a table sp...

This was awful. Very tart. Way too much lime juice.

I tried it and was not impressed. Not sure how "authentic" it is, but it's not as good as the Ginger Glazed recipe that appears here also.
