  • 12 oz Mahi-Mahi fillets 2 - 6 ounce fillets
  • 6 oz fresh crab meat
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • sea salt
  • black pepper
  • 8 grape tomatoes split in half
  • 1 clove garlic small dice


  • Start by preparing the mahi-mahi fillets, rub them down with olive oil and sprinkle a liberal amount of sea salt and black pepper on the fillets. Allow the fillets to warm up slightly before grilling.
  • Place fillets on a very hot grill and allow to remain in place for 4-5 minutes, you will get good grill marks this way. Gently turn over the fillets and allow to cook on the other side for another 4-5 minutes
  • (The fish should feel firm to the touch, not spongy.)
  • While the Mahi is cooking add olive oil to a hot saute pan and then add the garlic and grape tomato halves. Allow to saute for 1-2 minutes, do not let the garlic burn!
  • Add in the crab meat and gently toss in the mixture. Remove from the heat until Mahi is finished.
  • Remove the Mahi from the grill and top with the sauteed crab meat, serve immediately with your favorite side dish and a squeeze of lemon.
