Easy Recipes for Mahi Mahi

Updated on July 6, 2011

Easy ways to prepare a great fish

Mahi Mahi are also known as dolphin fish, and are surface dwellers. They are among the fastest growing fish.  They live in temperate, tropical and sub tropical off shore areas. These fish go by many names, but the Mahi Mahi is the Hawaiian version. I like to order it when I can, and if you should ever have some Mahi Mahi, here are some easy ideas to prepare them. Hope you enjoy!

Stir Frying Mahi Mahi


2 tablespoons of Terriyaki sauce

Oil for wok

Chopped carrots

Chopped celery

Choped green onions

Cooked rice


Cut your Mahi Mahi into one inch pieces, and place them in a shallow glass Pyrex dish. Pour your teriyaki sauce over them.

Next, heat your oil in the wok, just one tablespoon and put it over medium heat. Stir fry one cup of carrots, and the celery, and the onions for about 2 minutes or so.

Next, add your fish and stir fry that until it is opaque looking, which will be about three to four minutes.

Serve over cooked rice, and you are done! How easy and healthy, I just love it.

Pan Frying your Mahi Mahi


Mahi Mahi filets

Oil or melted butter or margarine

Lemon Pepper

Garlic Pepper

Seasoned Pepper

Lemon and/or Lime wedges

Directions:  Coat your Mahi Mahi with the butter or margarine, then sprinkle on your choice of peppers above.  I actually like to use all three, but it may be too peppery for some people.  I even add a dash of cayenne always to almost all my fish. 

Heat your skillet to medium high, and cook your fish for four to minutes.  Turn the fish over, and cook another five to six minutes until the fish is opaque looking. 

Serve with lemon and/or lime, and your favorite herb sprig for a lovely garnish.

Grilling Mahi Mahi


Crushed pineapple, with juice

Two tablespoons of oil

Two tablespoons of teriyaki sauce

One quarter teaspoon of ground ginger

One tablespoon of honey

One quarter teaspoon of garlic powder


Place your Mahi Mahi in a shallow glass dish.  Combine the crushed pineapple with its juice, oil, teriyaki sauce, ginger, honey and garlic powder.  Let this stand at least 30 minutes or so.  I like to keep it refrigerated. 

Cook your Mahi Mahi on a hot and oiled grill for about five to six minutes.  Carefully turn over, and cook for another five to six minutes until fish is opaque.  Enjoy your fish!

      Guy, I have to say, that I wondered that too! I didn't really respond to that directly. I have to think she meant to say Mahi Mahi was her daughter's favorite fish, not dolphin. Who knows?! Thanks for stopping by.
