Grilled Mahi Mahi with Mango Chutney

Grilled Mahi Mahi with Mango Chutney

I made this last night for dinner and it turned out great. Not all of us are lucky enough to have a full-size grill, so I used a George Forman Grill and it worked just fine. The fish stayed super juicy, despite what I had expected.

Classic mango chutney has added sugar, but the recipe relied solely on the ripe mango for the sweet flavor of the dish. This mango chutney packs a powerful flavor punch, so they kept the seasoning for the fish more mild. They accompanied the dish with a simple cauliflower rice to bring it all together.

 Ingredients: Mango Chutney
  • 2 ripe mangoes, chopped into bite size pieces
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped into bite size pieces
  • 1/2 of a large red onion, chopped into bite size pieces
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
  • The juice of 1.5 limes
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Process:
  1. In a large frying pan, heat coconut oil on medium.
  2. Add garlic and ginger to the frying pan and saute for 2 minutes.
  3. Add red onion and red bell pepper to the frying pan and continue to saute for another minute.
  4. Add the chopped mango, lime juice, curry powder, and red pepper flakes. Continue to saute until the red bell pepper, onion, and mango have softened. About 5 minutes.
  5. Turn heat down to simmer, and cover with a lid until serving.

Ingredients: Grilled Mahi Mahi

  • 4 Mahi Mahi filets (ours were about 5-6 oz in size each) (I used two big fillets from Trader Joe’s)
  • The juice of one lemon
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped

Process:

  1. Combine marinade ingredients in a food processor until well blended. (I used a magic bullet)
  2. Marinate the fish in a ziploc bag for up to 1 hour before grilling.
  3. Heat grill to medium heat (about 400 degrees). If you have a fish plate for your grill, allow it to preheat as well.
  4. Place fish on the grill, skin side down first. Cook for 4-5 minutes before flipping.
  5. Cook opposite side for 4-5 minutes, until fish is opaque in the center.
