Mahi Mahi? Isn’t that dolphin? No, but you sure hear that from a lot of people. The common name (Mahi Mahi is Hawaiian) is dolphinfish (one word), and like so many things in the English language, similar words cause confusion. This fish is no relation to Flipper. It is also known widely as Dorado.
The fish are found in warm off-shore waters, can live to be five years old, grow to twenty pound and can be very colorful. (Picture left).
Trader Joes sells a pack of four Mahi Mahi burgers in their frozen aisle, and they can be done on the grill, pan fried, or baked. I opted for the skillet, 4-5 minutes each side say the instructions.
The ingredients are very straightforward, mostly the fish, with a little oil, spices, canola oil.
It’s attractive in appearance for a ‘fish-burger’, tho not right out of the box.
I dressed mine with White Castle tartar sauce and Vlasic Dill Pickle Chips, with a pinch of Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning (I put it on most things, in fact). Delicious.
These are easy to fix, low in cals, fats, and carbs. A good alternative to beef patties for your kids, let them decorate it the way they want.
