Cumin Grilled Mahi Mahi

Thursday, August 11, 2016



One of our favorite foods to grill is fish. Mostly salmon and tuna , but recently I have found that mahi mahi fillets hold up great when grilling. It makes for a flavorful easy dinner that you can get on the table quickly. We love cumin in this house, so it we easy to whip up this glaze using olive oil, cumin, garlic and ancho chili powder.  Grilling mahi fillets take mere minutes , so make sure you have your sides made beforehand. I made a summery corn and avocado salad to go with the mahi mahi and it was delicious. You can find that recipe here on my blog.  You can definitley substitute another firm fish for the mahi, if it isn't your favorite or unavailable where you live. The glaze would also be good on shrimp or chicken kabobs. Or even used as a glaze for sauteed scallops.
