Orange grilled Mahi Mahi served whole, sliced or crumbled over your favorite vegetables makes a delicious, hearty meal. You can use fresh if you are lucky enough to get it however, frozen fish is still a fantastic product. Create your favorite combinations of vegetables and toss in an orange vinaigrette and you have dinner.
You will need:
- 2 pieces of Mahi Mahi
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tsp dried or fresh ginger
- 1/2 orange juiced and 1 tbsp orange zest
- 1 clove garlic – crushed
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 orange juiced
- 2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
- 3 tbsp olive oil- use your best extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tsp honey mustard
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- salt/pepper to taste
Plus all your favorite vegetables chopped for a nice big salad
Step 1: in a large bowl add thawed fish, soy sauce, ginger (fresh grated is always better) orange zest, orange juice, crushed garlic, olive oil and salt and pepper. Toss, cover with plastic wrap and keep in fridge while you prepare salad and heat grill.
Step 2: in another large bowl add all your ingredients for the dressing. Add orange juice, rice wine vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, honey mustard, sesame oil, salt and pepper to taste. Mix taste and adjust if necessary. Add more salt and pepper or more vinegar if necessary.
Step 3: chop all the vegetables you like for your salad. I add the chopped vegetables directly over the dressing but, I do not toss until just before I serve. Make sure you put hearty vegetables like peppers or cucumbers directly on the dressing and leave the tender greens to last so they do not touch the dressing and get wilted before you serve.
Step 4: grill your fish for a few minutes on each side until just cooked through basting with the remaining marinade.
Toss salad, crumble or slice fish (or leave it whole ) and pour the wine!
I have also used some Avocado lime cream that I had from a meal the day before which went very well.
