Recipe of the Week: Grilled Mahi-Mahi

I was so excited about doing September's Asian Recipes of the Week that I had totally forgotten about the last week of August! o_O Well thankfully we grill fish every week and I have a trusty recipe I can share. This week's feature is an easy, healthy grilled mahi mahi, lightly marinated with tarragon, lime and garlic dressing, served with a side of sesame broccoli. I know it looks dull in the picture. But you don't need a ton of marinade with fish. Mahi-Mahi is typically mild tasting anyway, so you'd want to keep sauces, dressings, and marinades on the lighter side to complement, not cover, the taste your fish.

Now onto the recipe ...

Grilled Mahi-Mahi

2 mahi mahi fillets
2 tbsp fresh tarragon, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
4 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp lime zest
1/4 cup coconut oil
salt, pepper to taste

Marinate mahi mahi fillets in a bag with all the other ingredients for 15-30 minutes.
Preheat grill.
Cook fish until it flakes easily with a fork; about 5 minutes each side.

Grilled Sesame Broccoli

3 cups of broccoli florets
2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp sesame oil
salt and pepper
1-2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds

Grill on a piece of aluminum foil over indirect heat (top rack) for 10 minutes.
