I am one of those people who chooses fish at weddings, and I would rank the salmon last. Mahi mahi is a really mild fish, so that will probably go over well.

I would go with the Mahi Mahi.  It seems like Salmon is a common fish choice.

I personally love salmon, but many people don’t.  I would go with the Mahi. Yours looks yummy.

I’d rank them like this:

  1. Pistachio-Crusted Mahi Mahi
  2. Pan-Seared Striped Bass
  3. Grilled Atlantic Salmon

I like the sides better that go with the bass than with the mahi, but I’ve had so much salmon that I’d rather not have it at a wedding. Plus, it never seems to get cooked correctly. I don’t know if you’re doing the food yourself, but saffron is VERY expensive and IMO not super delicious. Generally it’s only good in very seafood-y dishes such as paella. If you could switch the sides and have mahi with sauteed baby spinach and whatnot then I’d totally eat that over regular steak (one of my fav meals haha).

Most people tend to go for either salmon or mahi mahi. However, the sides and sauces that are listed will be too exotic for most folks. Is there anything available that is simpler and more of a crowd pleaser? Those that are listed for each option will only appeal to a select group of folks that your guests may not fit into, especially if any one is a picky eater by any means or prefers simple tastes, in which case they may not touch any of it.

Also, if you are listing entree options on your reply cards, you need to be as specific as possible in listing everything that goes with those options. That will affect what people choose. If someone may pick the fish choice (over beef or chicken or whatever else) and they see that it is prepared a certain way, they may choose to go for the beef or chicken instead if they don’t like what goes with the fish. The same applies for the other choices.

I’d pick the sea bass combo.  I’m not crazy about the salmon.  Generally, I like salmon, but it’s pretty common.  The mahi mahi might be the best choice though.  (at my wedding, we’re serving halibut or beef tenderloin).

Although I love how all 3 sound, I would probably opt for the bass.  It’s a mild fish and the sides are much more audience friendly, in my opinion.
