Grilled Mahi Mahi

Grilled Mahi Mahi

Helene 8

"This recipe is great either on the grill or in the oven broiler. The tomatoes give it a little bite. My entire family loves it, even my pickiest eater. In the winter I make this dish in my oven or broiler. The amounts I gave are approximate. I use two cans of tomatoes when I want more 'bite,' only one can when I want less. I like a lot of garlic so I generally use a lot."

I used mahi mahi filets and my oven's broiler. Perhaps I screwed up, but other than those modifications, I followed the recipe exactly. Sorry. :(

Excellent, and very different fish recipe. I made a few changes: 1) Used olive oil instead of butter--was good, but next time I will try the butter (or do half and half oil and butter). 2) Di...

I don't want to rate this, because I was the one who submitted it..(smile)..For some reason one ingredient was not added. Onions, and lots of them. I usually use one of those really big ones, di...

Well, it was 39 degrees outside and raining so I decided to cook this dish in the oven. I used a covered casserole and baked for about 30 minutes at 425. I cut the recipe down for 4 people but...

We really enjoyed this recipe. I used Mahi Mahi filets instead of cutting the fish into chunks, and the fish was frozen when I put it into the foil. I did not put on the pepper jack cheese at t...

I used tequilla instead of wine and it was FANTASTIC!! I didn't feel like opening a full bottle of wine for the small amount needed in the recipe.

I scaled this down for 2 people, since I only had a half pound of fish. I basically just dumped the ingredients on top of the fish, sealed it over with foil and stuck it under the broiler. It ...

This was fantastic but I do have some tips: drain almost all the juice before adding the wine and lemon, cook for 30 minutes instead of 35 - it was a bit overdone, you can just use aluminum foi...

I really liked this mahi recipe, I didn't have any wine so I used tequila and made my own tomato sauce with garlic and onions. I also used oj (had no more lemons). It turned out very good! The ...
