Blackened Mahi Mahi


Mahi Mahi is the Hawaiian name for Dorado or Dolphin (fish). There are many ways to prepare this fish that are outstanding and I will be presenting more than just this one. This one is just the easiest one to do.




- 2 Mahi-Mahi steaks (frozen or fresh)

- Unsalted Butter (room temperature)

     (enough to completely coat both sides)

- Blackened seasoning (found at any foodstore)

     Enough to completely coat both sides

- 2 Tbs cooking oil




- If frozen, thaw fish in refrigerator

- Pat dry with paper towels

- Coat entire surface of all steaks with softened butter

- Thickly coat all surfaces with Blackened Seasoning

- In a medium pan, heat oil on medium high heat. When oil is hot, carefully arrange fish steaks so they

  don’t touch and do not crowd the pan.

- Cook until butter is melted, seasoning forms a light crust and steaks are flaky.

- Plate and enjoy
