Lamu Style Mahi Mahi

READY IN: 38mins
Recipe by Judy from Hawaii

I received this recipe from my pastor's wife. It is too sophisticated for my kids, but if you like spicy food, I think you will enjoy this. I have only made it with mahimahi, but it should work with any firm white fish.

Personally, I love cumin, but never used it on fish. I was worried that my wife might not like it because she's less of a cumin fan that I. But the fish turned out great. Used olive oil. Grilled some green and yellow squash and portobello mushtooms as our side. One of the best fish dishes I've made.
