Grilled Mahi Mahi

Nice blend of flavors for this fish. This was a recipe I altered some from a cooking magazine. This recipe may also be broiled. Leftovers are even better the next day if you have any left.

    KEEPER ALERT, KEEPER ALERT. Didn't have dark rum. Used triple sec, 1/4 pasillas pepper and orange zest and this recipe was OUTSTANDING!!! Fish-haters will change their tune.

    I made mahi mahi once before and was pretty unimpressed, but after making this it's apparent that you just gotta season it right! I made this with everything except the cilantro, and used dried mint instead of fresh. Delicious with wild rice on the side

    Very nice. The mint and cumin combine to produce interesting flavor. Didn't have lime, substituted lemon. Reminds me of a dish I like at a nice Napa Valley restaurant. I used a hand blender to blend the liquid ingredients together into a uniform consistency.
