Southwestern Grilled Mahi Mahi with Grilled Lime Garnish

Serves 2. Prep time 10 minutes. Cooking time 12 minutes.


1 pound fresh mahi mahi filet
1 lime, cut in half


½ cup olive oil
1 tsp chili powder
½ tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp salt
¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
2 tbsp lemon juice


1.    Combine all marinade ingredients. Pour over fish. Let sit 30 minutes.
2.    When coals are hot, place fish over direct heat. If the fish has the skin on, put it skin-side down. Cook, with lid on, for 5-6 minutes.

3.    Turn fish carefully, and place lime halves flesh-side down over direct heat. Cook another 5-6 minutes. Mahi mahi is ready when it flakes easily.

4.    Garnish with cilantro and grilled lime.

Goes great with southwestern grilled corn and the cob and asparagus.
