  1. This was delicious! I couldn't really find your mahimahi fish in my neck of the woods so I used swordfish steaks instead. I followed the recipe to a 't' for 4 people and we all were impressed with the flavor and taste. Thank you a great recipe! I think I'll even try this with other fish now. It's in my cookbook to stay!
  2. Mahimahi is not indigenous to my area and when I asked at the grocery, they'd never heard of it. I substituted Tilapia filets (a farmed variety of fish) and they were great. I did these in my George Foreman copycat grill and they were great, but I can't wait until it is warm enough to cook out and we've got some fresh catfish to try it out on! Thanks for sharing this recipe Mark!
  3. This recipe is fantastic! We can usually get Mahi Mahi near us, and this is by far our favorite way to prepare it. Usually, I'm one who will tinker with recipes a bit (adding more of this, less of that, etc.) but this one is great as is!
  4. This was a very simple, VERY good recipe. I made it almost exactly as called out, (I did forget the cream of mushroom soup) But it was still good.
  5. I can't believe how good this recipe is! We used fresh marlin and my guests were extremely impressed! Easy to make and very tastey, thanks for sharing it!
