@axeyourmakeupkit:  Beer (like Corona-type beer) + cilantro + garlic + lime is a pretty good marinade. Or soy sauce + ginger + garlic? I don’t usually measure anything for marinades (just taste test along the way), but those are always yummy combos especially for a meatier fish like Mahi. My fav side dishes to eat with fish are quinoa, cous cous, or brown rice. And then a green veggie like steamed broccoli or green beans.

Now I want that for dinner, haha.

I like a soy/ honey/ lime marinade… haven’t done it in a while, but I remember it as delicious.  eta: Plus freshly grated ginger, YUM

I’m trying to find the most amazing salmon recipe for you~ it used fresh herbs… so good!  I’ll post it when I find it.

I usually do a relatively heavy sesame oil-dark soy-ginger-garlic marinade on heavier fish like salmon, but for Mahi I would just broil it and squeeze some lemon and maybe some herbs on it – like rosemary or italian blend, something light and delicious!

@MrsWrangler:  Yup~ you’re right!  The marinade I suggested is for darker, heavier meat… 🙂

Blackened!  My husband looked up a blackening spice “recipe” online and mixed the spices together in a tupperware.  We pan sear it and make fish tacos.  We make a salsa with avocado, mango, red onion, cilantro, and lime juice salsa. They’re delicious and so refreshing!

I made some the other night breaded w/panko and crushed almonds baked till brown – would be great with crushed macadmias but I didn’t have any.  Reduced sauce with equal parts honey/soy sauce and a squeeze of mustard… a nice change from the usual marinade!

Use a bit of ginger (fresh is preferred, but powdered is ok) and lime, let it marinate for a hot minute, and sear it off! So good!
