Grilled Italian Style Mahi Mahi with Lemon Herbs

Delicious Mahi Mahi if you haven't tried this fish are missing a fabulous experience in taste~

What a perfect day for grilling tonight, getting the pool ready and cleaned to take a dip , Lemon Herb Fresh Mahi Mahi cooking on the grill, thanks to Jim, one my co-workers, that caught this fish in Fort Pierce, Florida. This bad boy he caught weighed 33lbs and I was grateful to get some of his awesome catch of the day, thanks Jim what an amazing looking fish!!!!.. and congrats to you for this fabulous catch!

I was going back and forth on what flavors I wanted to add to get ready for the grill. I had seen blackened, salsa, fried, and grilled recipes that were all options, but my favorite recipe to make and eat fish, always ends up grilled. So this Grilled Italian Herb has more of a lemony style flavor. I decided that this was the one for me to experiment on~ wow was my husband pleased at my was really really delicious, Mahi and lemon were the perfect match!

Of course there is nothing better than a fresh catch, but the fresh herbs, spices and extra virgin olive oil cooked on the grill was a melt in your mouth experience for sure!~

Marinade in several spices, olive oil and fresh lemon... sooooo gooood!

For the Marinade:

1 lb Mahi Mahi
1 tablespoon of lemon zest
lemon slices enough for each piece
1/2 teaspoon each parsley, dill, garlic powder, black pepper, paprika,basil,oregano,cayenne pepper
2 cloves garlic (finely chopped or minced)
2 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

Mix all the ingredients of the marinade together in a bowl. Add in the pieces of Mahi Mahi. Mix well. Cover and refrigerate for approximately two hours. Heat the grill, brush with some olive oil and add the pieces of the fish. Top with slices of lemon and grill on each side till brown on both sides around 5 minutes on each side. Serve.
