    Grilled Mahi -

    Picked up some great looking mahi mahi today. Pretty thick cuts - close to an inch.

    I've always grilled fish hot and fast. Anyone do anything different?
    Any point in trying to reverse sear?

    For thicker cuts of fish, I usually just cook a bit longer, but with the heat level a little lower. That gives time for the fish to cook through without burning the surface. No harm in reverse-searing, I suppose.


      That’s a good question
      I am interested in the Responses on that one


        Yea indirect until desired temp then a quick sear. Mahi is a pretty meaty fish, it will take it. I also suggest using grill mats if you got them, cuts down on the sticking and diffuses the heat better.


          Troutman appreciate the advice. I don't have grill mats.... Yet. I'll probably throw a couple lemon slices underneath them on the indirect side.
          Grill grates on the sear side are pretty well seasoned and don't really stick.

            Well there you go, lemons work well too.

          Seasoned with 2/3 MMD, 1/3 Cayenne

          Set up for indirect cooking. Cool side was right about 200. Added a small pouch of hickory chips for light smoke. Lime slices underneath to keep it from sticking

          Took Mahi and made tacos with avocado and that green sauce. Served with a couple Mexican style lagers

            That looks great! I never considered MMD for seafood and the cayenne mix is intriguing.
