Blackend Mahi Mahi

2nd night in a row, I had to cook inside due to 'dinner time' thunderstorms.

.83lb of mahi mahi


Seasoned with Zatarains Blackening Seasoning.


Threw some vegetables in the pan first.


Seared the fish skin side first..


Flipped at the 5 minute mark for 5 more minutes.


Served over Wild Rice Medley.

Not much on fish, but you may change my mind, the veggies look killer.

Ok Larry, so when I show up at your place with the beer, and the butt cheeks to curry, you'll make me your mahi mahi

Re: Blackend Mahi Mahi

Good job Larry. That looks excellent. Now I have heard of that species of fish. Aint it kin to Talapia or similar? If so..and it sorta bland tasting cant think of a higher calling than to get itself blackened to get some flavor in it. Last time I tried it in the house I was using some kinda ho made concoction I seen on PBS or somewhere like that. Well I got that cast iorn skillet hotter than a two dollar pistol and throwed the catfish in there. Everything went well for 30 secs or so then this fish starts smoking enough to set off all the smoke detectors and if you come in there for the next day or so it was like the po pos had been shooting tear gas in there etc. Musta been the cayenne I guess Tasted great.

I would not even put tilapia in the same category as mahi mahi (dolphin). I've have tilapia too many times and it's the worst (muddiest) tasting fish I've ever eaten. I bet carp tastes better. You should have a good chance of getting fresh dolphin where you're at. If they have it on ice, ask for a vacuum sealed frozen piece. UNLESS you go to a high end fish monger, the stuff on ice was previously frozen and sitting on ice for (how many days??)......

Re: Blackend Mahi Mahi

Well that muddy flavor of Talpia is news to me. Most I could use to describe all I've got is bland tasteless etc. Guess them you got come from a muddy part of the Ocean or something.
