Pronounced: MAH-hee MAH-hee

This fish is named the dolphin fish, but not to be confused with the mammal dolphin. It was renamed Mahi-Mahi by the Hawaiians so it would not be confused with the other dolphin. Mahi-Mahi is typically found in tropical and subtropical waters from early May to September.

This type of fish is “fatty”, a firm fish with very flavorful flesh and is best served as a steak or a fillet. You can bake it, broil it, grill it, saute' it, sear it or even, steam it.

Mahi-Mahi also matches well with avocados, chiles, cilantro, coconut, cumin, fruits, garlic, ginger, grapefruit, lime, olive oil, papaya, parsley, pineapples, soy sauce, and tomatoes.

Motts Channel Seafood is THE place to pick up fresh, local Mahi-Mahi. It's where fresh is best.


Happy Cinco de Mayo! We know that tomorrow you’ll probably fill up on tacos and tequila, but once that's over we think you’ll enjoy cooking this healthy, delicious, quick meal for your friends and family at home.  Serves two. Enjoy!

  • One pound fresh Motts Channel Seafood Mahi-Mahi
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • Garlic powder (sprinkle, to taste)
  • Cumin (sprinkle, to taste)
  • Salt (a pinch or so)
  • Pepper (a pinch or so)
  • Chili Powder (sprinkle, to taste)
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup yellow onion, diced
  1. In a separate bowl, combine 1 tablespoon honey, the juice from half of the lime, a pinch of salt, pepper, and 1 tablespoon cilantro. Pour into Ziplock bag and add mahi-mahi filets. The ideal marinade time is 1+ hours. After marinated, place on a separate plate and sprinkle with garlic powder and cumin.
  2. Heat 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat and add rice. Cook, stirring constantly, until golden brown. Be careful not to overcook/burn the rice in this step! While rice is cooking, sprinkle with garlic powder and cumin. Stir in onions and cook until tender. Then, stir in chicken broth and tomato sauce; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 25-30 minutes. After all the liquid is absorbed, your rice is done. Add seasonings to taste. Fluff with a fork.
  3. While the rice is cooking, open the can of black beans and pour into a small pot. Add the juice of half the lime, 1 tablespoon of chopped cilantro, and sprinkle with chili powder. Cover over low heat.
  4. Lightly coat another pan with cooking spray and heat over medium for 3-4 minutes. When the pan is hot, add marinated mahi-mahi to the pan. Sear for approximately 3 minutes on one side and gently flip the mahi-mahi over. Cook for 3-4 more minutes until slightly opaque. Be careful not to overcook the fish!
  5. Plate and enjoy.
