Mahi Mahi Fish Sandwich

The Miami Dolphin Sandwich!

    • Serves 2
    • Medium


    One great aspect about living in Florida is being surrounded by water, marine life, and beautiful beaches! Back to marine life and fish. I love working with fish, and pairing them with various spices and ingredients for incredible flavor results. Though when the fish is fresh, keeping it simple is best! This mahi mahi sandwich is my take on a simple, yet delicious fish recipe.

    Mahi mahi, also known as dolphinfish, can be found in the Caribbean Sea, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Atlantic coast of Florida. Did I mention I live in Miami? Since this recipe is in collaboration with other food bloggers for this football season, this sandwich is representing the Miami Dolphins.

    Pan Sear The Mahi Mahi Steaks

    Add about 2 tbsp of oil (I use sunflower seed oil) to a skillet and heat on medium-high heat. Season both sides of the fish with sea salt (about 2 tsp per fillet) then add to the hot skillet. Sear the fish for about 3 minutes on each side or until completely opaque.

    Once the fish is cooked, remove the skillet from the heat and allow the fish to rest in the skillet while making the herb mayo aioli.


    Make Herb Mayo Aioli

    To a bowl, add the mayonnaise, chopped chives, chopped dill, juice of 1 lemon and a pinch of sea salt. Stir to combine and give it a taste. Adjust seasoning if necessary.


    Build The Sandwich

    Toast your burger buns, if desired, then add some mayonnaise aioli, a few leaves of lettuce, shredded purple cabbage, and the mahi mahi fillet. Add more lemon juice if desired and enjoy!
