NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for brushing
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (about 2 limes)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves plus 2 sprigs for garnish
  • 2 (5 to 6-ounce) mahi-mahi fillets
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Mixed greens, for serving
Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Put the garlic and olive in a small microwave-safe bowl, cover with plastic, and microwave on HIGH until the garlic is soft and aromatic, 1 to 2 minutes. (Alternatively, heat the oil and garlic in a small saucepan over medium heat until the garlic is softened.) Stir in the lime juice, cilantro leaves, and salt. Set aside until ready to serve.

  • Prepare an outdoor grill to medium high heat. Brush the fillets all over with olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper. Lay the fish on the grill, rounded-side down, and leave it until you can lift the fish without it sticking to the grill and there are distinct grill marks, about 5 minutes. (Test it by gently lifting a corner--if it sticks, cook it a bit longer and try again). Carefully turn the fish over and cook until firm to the touch, about another 5 minutes.

  • Place a bed of greens on 2 plates. Divide the fish between the plates and brush with some of the mojo. Garnish with cilantro sprigs and serve with the sauce.
