Sweet Sesame Mahi Mahi

Sweet Sesame Mahi Mahi.

When Patrick comes over to cook he likes to try different cuisines.  This past week it was Hawaiian with lovely pan-fried mahi mahi filets garnished with a pineapple salsa.  So tasty.

Here's the recipe from

Sweet Sesame Mahi Mahi

2 cups pineapple chunks 
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped 
1 tablespoon minced red onion  
2 tablespoons lime juice 
4 (8 ounce) mahi mahi fillets
2 teaspoons sesame oil  
1/4 cup white sesame seeds  
1 tablespoon vegetable oil (Patrick used Canola oil.)


1. Toss the pineapple, cilantro, red onion, and lime juice together in a bowl until evenly 
mixed; set aside. 
2. Rub the mahi mahi fillets with the sesame oil to lightly coat. 
3. Sprinkle the sesame seeds evenly over one side of each fillets; gently press the seeds into the fish to assure they stick. 
4. Heat the vegetable oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. 
5. Lay the fillets with the seeded side down into the hot oil; cook for 4 minutes, turn, and continue cooking until the flesh turns opaque and flakes easily with a fork, another 3 to 5 minutes. Serve with the pineapple mixture.  The recipe makes 4 eight-ounce fillets.
