  3. Place the mahi mahi fillets in the marinade and turn to coat; allow to marinate at least 15 minutes.

So delicious! I'm 15 and just made this recipe- easy, and the whole family loved it, parents and little brother! YUM!

Super good! I did not have lime so I used lemon and kids and hubby loved it!!

Perfect! So easy and quick. Perfect for a quick weeknight meal. I served mine with a glass or rose wine and a side of zucchini. Used extra lime in the marinade. I will definitely use this recipe...
