Blackstone Mexican Mahi Mahi Recipe:

We love cooking seafood on the Blackstone Griddle. We have enjoyed tilapia, snapper and halibut. The griddle recipe cooks the fish quick and easy but still keeping it juicy.

This Mexican Mahi Mahi is loaded with flavor. We love the flavor of the mahi mahi and have even made blackened mahi mahi. This fish cooks fast on the griddle and with amazing texture.

The simple seasoning that is brushed on the mahi mahi is made with easy ingredients. You can even change them to what you prefer. If you are looking for a healthy fish to cook, make this Mexican Mahi Mahi.

What does Mahi Mahi taste like?

If you are looking for a mild fish that everyone will enjoy, then I would make Mahi Mahi. It has a distinct touch of sweetness with a firm texture.

It is one of the best fish to grill because it keeps it flavors and stays firm through the grilling process.

Do I Remove the Skin?

If your purchased the Mahi Mahi with the skin on, then there is no need to worry. You can cook the fish with the skin on and just remove it before eating.

Cooking the fish with the skin keeps the Mahi Mahi juicy and tasty. It can be tough, so I recommend flaky it off prior to eating it.

Other Ways to Use Mexican Mahi Mahi:

This Mexican Mahi Mahi is great served with a side of rice and steam vegetables. But you can also enjoy Mahi Mahi Tacos.

Mahi Mahi fish tacos is a family favorite. We love to slice the mahi mahi after cooking and adding to corn tortillas. Top the taco with guacamole and mango salsa for a delicious taco recipe.

We have even made a slaw with greek yogurt to top the flour tortilla with the fish. Add diced avocado, sour cream, pineapple salsa and fresh cilantro for a crowd favorite fish taco. We even add in slice jalapenos and squeeze lime wedges for a hint of lime.

Recipe Tips:

  • Seasoning – We love the flavors of the taco seasoning and Italian seasoning. But you can easily change it. You can add in paprika, onion powder, ground cumin or chili powder to make your own seasoning.
  • Blackened Seasoning – This seasoning is amazing on the Mahi Mahi. We love the flavors and love blackening the mahi mahi on the griddle. Serve with a side of pico de gallo and black beans for a healthy meal idea.
  • Cooking the Mahi Mahi – When cooking the mahi mahi we recommend not moving the fish while it cooks. Cooking time will vary but you will know when you fish is cooked when it flakes.
  • Stovetop Cooking – If you prefer, you can make this Mexican Mahi Mahi in a skillet pan over medium-high heat. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce and a side of vegetables and rice.
