This week’s Sunday Supper theme is Best Seafood Recipes, so I knew I had to share one of my all-time favorites: Teriyaki Mahi Mahi with Mango Salsa.
Confession: I have never actually made this recipe. It is from Weber’s Big Book of Grilling, now out of print. HOWEVER, this is one of DH’s go-to recipes and I have EATEN it several times! It always gets rave reviews. Have I mentioned how great of a cook DH is?
Teriyaki Mahi Mahi with Mango Salsa
Source: Weber’s Big Book of Grilling (now out of print I think)
Course: Main Course
Main Ingredient: Fish
- 4 mahi mahi fillets (about 6 oz each and 1 inch thick)
- For the Salsa:
- 1 large ripe mango
- 1?4 cup red onion (finely chopped)
- 1 Tbs oil
- 1 Tbs fresh lime juice
- 1 Tbs mint (finely chopped)
- 1 tsp jalapeno pepper (minced with seeds)
- 1?4 tsp salt
- For the Marinade:
- 1?4 cup soy sauce
- 1?4 cup sake (sweet)
- 1 Tbs oil
- 1 Tbs brown sugar
- 1 tsp fresh ginger (grated)
- 1 tsp garlic (minced)
- Peel mango and dice to 1/4 inch thick squares; mix with remaining salsa ingredients and refrigerate until ready to serve.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the marinade ingredients.
- Place the marinade and fish fillets in a large plastic bag, press out the air, turn the bag to coat somewhat evenly, and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes.
- Remove fillets, discard remaining marinade, spray each side of the fillet with oil, and grill over direct high heat until it’s opaque throughout, 8-10 minutes, turning once halfway through the grilling time.
- Serve the fish warm, topped with the salsa.
The Verdict: Do you even have to ask? The mango salsa perfectly complements the marinated mahi mahi, which is the best fish in the world, although I’ve had trouble figuring out if it’s sustainably raised or not. Sometimes, you just have to splurge.

Wow, if your husband just finished training for a century ride, I can imagine he’s intensely hungry! Good thing this cookout has lots of protein for refueling. 🙂
If you ever decide to ship mahi mahi or steak kabobs to D.C., let me know, and I’ll be the first to sign up.
Oooh, that looks delicious! My DH cannot cook at all, but that’s okay he’s a great handyman. Thanks for participating in Gluten-Free Wednesdays.
