Grilled Mahi Mahi

Grilled Mahi Mahi is a tasty and easy dinner option. It’s like a simple dance on the grill—fast and clean. You only need a grill, some tongs, a brush, and foil.

First, warm up the grill to medium-high heat, like 400°F. Mix 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, minced garlic, oregano, paprika, salt, and pepper for a special marinade. Put the fish in this mix and wait for 10 minutes.

Brush the grill with oil so the fish won’t stick. Then, put the fish on the grill. Cook each side for about 4-5 minutes until it’s easy to break with a fork. While cooking, use the extra marinade on the fish.

Check if it’s done by poking the thickest part with a fork—it should be opaque and break apart easily. Take it off the grill and let it sit for 5 minutes to keep the juices inside.

Now, put the grilled Mahi Mahi on a plate with rice and add some lemon wedges. Maybe have a fresh salad on the side.

In one serving, there are about 250 calories. Remember, you can change the spices or add a bit of pepper if you like. You can use fresh or frozen Mahi Mahi, but if it’s frozen, make sure it’s thawed. Easy and tasty—Grilled Mahi Mahi is a winner for a healthy and simple dinner!

  • Grill
  • Tongs
  • Basting brush
  • Aluminum foil


  • 4 (6 oz each) Mahi Mahi fillets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Lemon wedges for serving


  • Preheat the Grill: Preheat your grill to medium-high heat, about 400°F (200°C).
  • Prepare the Marinade: In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, dried oregano, paprika, salt, and pepper to create a flavorful marinade.
  • Marinate the Mahi Mahi: Place the Mahi Mahi fillets in a shallow dish and brush both sides with the marinade. Let them marinate for at least 10 minutes, allowing the flavors to infuse.
  • Prepare the Grill Grates: Brush the grill grates with oil to prevent sticking.
  • Grill the Mahi Mahi: Place the marinated Mahi Mahi fillets on the preheated grill. Grill each side for about 4-5 minutes, or until the fish easily flakes with a fork. Baste with the remaining marinade while grilling.
  • Check for Doneness: Use a fork to check the thickest part of the fillet. The fish should be opaque and easily flake when done.
  • Resting Time: Remove the Mahi Mahi from the grill and let it rest for 5 minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute, keeping the fish moist.
  • Serve: Plate the grilled Mahi Mahi on a bed of rice, garnish with lemon wedges, and serve with a crisp salad on the side.


  1. Ensure the grill is well-heated before placing the fish to get those beautiful grill marks.
  2. You can add a pinch of red pepper flakes for a subtle kick.
  3. Experiment with different marinade herbs and spices to suit your taste preferences.
  4. Fresh Mahi Mahi is preferable, but frozen fillets work well too; just ensure they are fully thawed before grilling.
