Hawaiian Style Mahi Mahi Recipe

This mahi mahi recipe is delicious and easy to make. This Hawaiian Tropical Fish recipe looks so fitting, doesn't it? This recipe is made with soy sauce, a rich and dark gluten-free soy sauce. Paired with mangoes to brighten and sweeten the dish, this tropical recipe is delicious! Even my kids love it and are picky about fish recipes. Flaky, soft, quick and easy Mahi Mahi.

Mahi Mahi is a super cool tropical fish. Double check - very cool, almost alien. Mahi Mahi has a very similar texture to swordfish and is perfect for grilling or pan frying.

As a tropical fish, mahi mahi has a slightly stronger flavor than cod, but it tastes really good for the marinade in this recipe.

The best thing about this fish is how easy it is to cook. We used a cast iron skillet, but a regular skillet will work too. (Side note: If you don't have a cast iron skillet, I highly recommend getting one.) Pan fry this fish for a nice crispy and delicious finish, and it only takes a few minutes per side.

The beauty of using a cast iron skillet is how heat transfer works. If you are roasting your mahi mahi, let it roast on medium-high heat for about 2 minutes before checking. If it doesn't come out of the pan, it will take longer. Once it starts to pull away from the pan, you should flip it for about 2 more minutes.

The sauce for this recipe is full of flavor! If you don't have time, you can use it to marinate fish, or pour it over while cooking, which is great either way.

Note: Rice vinegar isn't always gluten-free, we can find our favorite gluten-free rice vinegars through Thrive Market, where you'll also find Tamari Soy Sauce.
