Mahi Mahi with Jerk Seasoning Recipe

Mahi Mahi with Jerk Seasoning

One of my absolute favorite ways to enjoy Mahi Mahi is usually as a fish taco, but the other night my husband surprised me by cooking up some fabulous Anderson Seafoods Mah Mahi with a Jerk Seasoning.  I will admit that I was slightly concerned when I first saw it…I was afraid that he burnt some of our prized Mahi Mahi!  But, he didn’t 😉

Jerk Seasoned Mahi Mahi

You will brush the seasoning paste that only takes a few moments to make, over the fish before cooking it, so they will blacken as you cook the fillets. Don’t worry, they aren’t burnt – nor do will it taste burnt.  It WILL taste fabulous.

You definitely want to make sure that you really coat the fillets in the seasoning – it adds such a wonderful flavor.  As you can see, we even brushed it onto the sides.

Now, here’s the recipe.  Remember to pin it and/or print it so that you can make it again and again!

  5. Enjoy!



Recipe for Mahi Mahi with Jerk Seasoning

We served ours with steamed asparagus and quinoa.  It was definitely a flavorful meal, and we will definitely be adding this one into our regular rotation.  I know it’s easy to fall into cooking “ruts” but I encourage you to step outside of the box and try something new.  Something FUN 🙂

When you think of your holiday meals, I strongly encourage you to think outside of the “traditional” meats…think QUALITY seafood! Think Anderson Seafoods.

I hope your family enjoys this Mahi Mahi with Jerk Seasonings as much as we do!

  1. Sounds, and looks, delicious! I’ll try it.

    I suggest you try the mahi mahi from Costco; it’s 1/4 the cost of Anderson’s! and still delicious!
