Surprising. Mahi-Mahi is very good fish. If cooked right it is very pleasant. I love it. It is probably my all time favorite one. And I do not even do anything special with it. I too make it pan fried.

Mahi mahi is one of our faves too. Such a nice, meaty texture and "chew" to it. Fresh off the boat in Mexico or Hawaii, it's exquisite. Here, all we get is frozen, which is usually good, but there can be an occasional off piece. I usually panfry too.

Mango salsa always puts it over the top.

My husband and I love it grilled. We usually grill fresh pineapple rings and sweet potato medalions to serve with it. Usually I just sprinkle it with a little lime before cooking but sometimes I make a mango sauce to go on it or sprinkle it with a little cooked pineapple juice. It's the only fish I've ever had that I liked with fruit. I'm really picky about fish and this is one of my favorites. But, if you like the gamey/fishy flavor of say, brook trout, mahi mahi might seem kind of bland.

Mahi-mahi is the go-to fish for Baja style tacos. You cut the fish into bite sized pieces, dip them in a tempura style batter, and deep fry them. Serve them in a soft corn tortilla with shredded cabbage and Crema Mexicana

I concur. Add a squeeze of fresh lime jice, avocado & fresh diced tomatoes.

Mahi was one of our favorites when we lived in Hawaii. My dearest friend used to slather it with mayo, season it a bit, and grill it. My parents still remember that meal as one of their favorites when they visited us.

That's how we do swordfish.

mahi is a pretty versitale fish as it is mild in flavor and sturdy in texture in reference to a medium flake fish. you can serve it whole as an entree or bust it apart for a taco. its great for grilling or pan sauteing. take advantage of its ability to adhere to whatever you want it to be the question is what cuisine or flavors/application you want it to use it. theres not a whole lot of fat in mahi so poaching is not a good idea.
