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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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!

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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!
