Spicy Grilled Mahi Mahi

Source of inspiration:


This unique dish combines a long list of tropical flavors. It is a versatile meal that can use multiple types of mild white fish, including but not limited to tilapia, scrod and yellow tail. But for this example, we are going to use mahi-mahi.

Start with 1 thinly sliced cucumber and place the slices into a medium mixing bowl. Then season it with ¼ teaspoon of sea salt. Next, drizzle 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of olive oil over the slices. Then place in 1 tablespoon of minced, flat-leaf parsley and then let the mixture sit at room temperature. From there, go on to heat the grill. Set it to medium level and place a saucepan on top of it. Put into the saucepan a minced shallot, ½ cup of cider vinegar, and all of the remaining lemon juice.

From there you will simmer the saucepan until the liquid in it is about 2 tablespoons. Add 2 tablespoons of hot sauce (recommending our sauce No. 10), and then lower the heat to a small simmer. Whisk ¼ pound of buttery spread (cold and chopped into pieces) and then season with a small pinch of salt. Finally, place 4 mahi-mahi fillets (6 ounces each) on a plate and season it with the sea salt and olive oil left over. Then grill the mahi-mahi on high until ready. Once that is all done, get a serving plate, add the cucumbers and then place the grilled fish on top of them. Drizzle it with buerre blanc for a finishing touch and boom, you are ready to go!
