Grilled Mahi Mahi

Recipe and instructions for grilling mahi mahi


  • Mahi mahi fillets, an inch to inch and a half thick
  • olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • fresh ground black pepper


  • Light your grill to high heat and close the lid. ¬†Allow the grill to heat up for 15 minutes.
  • Brush all sides of the mahi mahi fillets with olive oil and then sprinkle a generous amount of Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper to each side of the fillets.
  • Once the grill has gotten nice and hot for 15 minutes, open the lid, reduce the grill to medium-high and place the mahi mahi fillets on the grill over direct heat.
  • Grill for about 4 minutes (times vary based on your grill). The key is to wait until the fillets naturally release from the grill grates. ¬†Gently lift an edge of the fillet with a spatula. If the fish releases without sticking, it is time to flip the fish.
  • Flip the fillets over to the other side and grill for another 3 - 4 minutes, until the flesh is firm but not overcooked.
  • Remove the grilled mahi mahi from the grill and server with lemon wedges.
