How to cook Mahi-mahi???

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

A weekend guest left me some frozen mahi-mahi fillets in individual portion sizes.  I've never tried this fish before.  What is the best way to cook it?  Pan-fried, baked, roasted?  (Can't grill here now.)   Does it have to be marinaded or cooked in liquid to prevent drying out?  (Hate dry fish.)  I cook salmon a lot...can I use salmon recipes for mahi-mahi?

 

Thanks for your insights.

My favorite way to cook dorado (mahi mahi) is to pan sear it over really high heat. You may need to dust it very lightly with flour to create a crust. I usually just put a thin layer of safflower oil in a pan, salt and pepper the fish, and when the oil smokes, cook the fish for maybe a minute on each side. I like my fish closer to undercooked than overcooked, but you may want to cook a little longer and/or use a lower heat. Fresh squeeze of lemon and it's a wrap.

definetly just lightly seared on each side. The more this fish gets cooked the more it dries out.
