Mahi Mahi Mango Recipe Ingredients
All you need to get started is listed below. This isn’t a hard recipe but all of the ingredients do matter. Make certain that you’re using them all and have everything on hand before starting.
- Mahi mahi fillets
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Sea salt and black pepper
- Red onion
- Fresh thyme leaves
- Fresh lemon juice
- Chipotle pepper
- Fresh thyme sprigs
Don’t have these on hand? Not to worry – here are some substitution ideas…
While Mahi Mahi is my favorite fish for this recipe, you CAN substitute a few other types of fish and still get delicious results! A few other great options are halibut, shark, swordfish, and fresh tuna.
Thyme is my favorite for this delicious. In fact, I think Thyme is great with so many types of fish! If you don’t have thyme on hand, not to worry! Oregano, marjoram and rosemary are great options too! (Especially rosemary!)
The mangos REALLY make this dish pop. If you are eager to try this recipe out, though, and don’t have any mangos or they are out of season, pineapple is a great alternative! Even canned pineapple! If you can get mangos though, definitely try it this way first!
If you don’t have lemons, not to worry! You can absolutely use limes!
Frequently Asked Questions About This Mahi Mahi Mango Recipe
What does mahi mahi taste like?
The truth is that mahi-mahi really doesn’t have a distinct flavor. This is always why people love to eat it.
Whatever you season it with or top it with is what it’s going to taste like. The great aspect of mahi-mahi is that it has a flaky and light texture that makes it truly delicious to eat.
Is Mahi Mahi considered white fish?
It is. This is because of its texture and also because of how it looks once cooked.
Can you eat mahi mahi skin?
You shouldn’t actually try and eat the skin because it has a very tough texture. You can, however, cook with it on and then take it off before eating.
How do you store leftover fish?
Once the fish is cooked and you’re lucky enough to have leftovers, just be certain to store it in an airtight container and place it in the fridge.
This will keep the fish as fresh as possible for as long as possible.
Can you freeze cooked fish?
My gut reaction would be to say no. This is because fish is such a light and flaky texture that it wouldn’t be able to withstand the freezing and unfreezing without it turning to mush.
See how simple and easy this recipe is? Now it’s your turn to give it a try! Your family is going to love the flavor of this simple fish dish!
