This recipe features mahi-mahi although you can use any firm fish filets. Mahi-mahi, which is also known as dolphin-fish (it is not related to dolphins) or dorado, has soft and succulent flesh. This fish can be oven-roasted, sautéed or, better yet, grilled. The flavor is unique and delicious, and the texture is firm enough so you can grill the fish without it breaking into pieces, yet soft enough to make a mahi-mahi recipe a real treat.

The following recipe combines delicious grilled mahi-mahi filets with a sweet and spicy red sauce. The sauce is spiced up with chili-garlic paste and a Serrano chili pepper. If you do not have the paste, just use a couple of minced garlic cloves and a pinch of chili powder or red pepper flakes. This spiciness is offset by the sweetness of the pineapple and a little sweet white wine. Anyone not wishing to use wine can just leave it out and just add a little more of the pineapple juice. You will get a very similar result.

Start the sauce just after firing up the grill, so it has time to simmer gently. While this happens, the flavors will mellow out and blend nicely. The fish will only take a few minutes on the grill, so the sauce should be just about ready when you add the fish, so that everything can be served at the same time.

In this picture, the grilled mahi-mahi is served with a potato croquette and some broccoli, as well as an attractive green garnish. It is up to you whether to use this serving suggestion. You could serve the fish and sauce with some boiled white rice, or even some plain boiled potatoes if you prefer. The broccoli is good with the mahi-mahi, or you could make green beans instead, or even serve a tossed salad on the side. If you have not tried mahi-mahi before, you are in for a treat, because it is one of the tastiest fish out there.

Hi, my name is Christine. I am happy you are visiting today. Food is very important to everyone, and in this family we love to eat all kinds of dishes from meat and chicken to international cuisine, crockpot creations and more. Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.

Everyone knows 'the big three' which are cod, tuna and salmon, but sometimes it is fun to try different types of fish, such as perch, trout, monkfish, or even shellfish like mussels or clams. There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.

Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone? You will find a comprehensive collection of wonderful seafood recipes right here, for your inspiration and enjoyment.
