When you are in the mood for fresh, wild-caught fish, make this mahi mahi sandwich!
One great aspect about living in Florida is being surrounded by water, marine life, and beautiful beaches!
I love cooking with fish and pairing it 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?
Mahi mahi is a meaty yet delicate fish and perfect for a sandwich. It does not have a pungent fish smell. If you are new to cooking with fish, this is a great introductory recipe.
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 like using avocado or olive oil) to a skillet and heat on medium-high heat.
Season both sides of the fish with sea salt (about 1/2 teaspoon per fillet) and black pepper (about 1.8 teaspoon 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 (1/4 teaspoon) of sea salt.
Stir to combine and give it a taste.
Adjust seasoning if necessary.
