This was definitely spicy for our taste but it was approved to try again so this recipe gets a solid 4 stars. I could see the paste complementing any firm fish such as salmon and I think it would also be good on shrimp. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
This was good and spicy! I didn't have Cajun seasoning, so I made the "Simple Cajun Seasoning" recipe on this site.
Instead of brushing the seasoning on, I threw it in a ziploc with the Mahi Mahi for 5-10 minutes, then cooked it under the broiler. My 6 year old said, this is a 5 star meal!
This is going to be one of my favorite recipes! I loved this and it was so easy to make......not to mention fast which is a must when you have a baby! We have made this twice with two different cajun seasonings....just remember not all brands of cajun seasoning are created equal! We love "Slap Ya Mama" form Louisiana, but also use Zataran's which isn't as spicy. Thank you Janel! This recipe is great!
I am making this for the second time since Christmas. The flavors definitely draw you back and it is easy to prepare and company worthy. I used the "lite" version of Tony Chachere's as my creole seasoning. It is lite on salt - not on heat! I am making a double batch of the sauce this time so I'll have some extra for rice. I will not double the creole seasoning, however. I like things spicy but it was a kicked up a little high for me. If you are making it for the first time I would advise starting with half of the tablespoon-- you can always add more!
This recipe does not disappoint. Thanks for sharing Janell.
This recipe just didn't quite do it for us, although it certainly was easy. I cooked a batch of rice and while that was simmering, I mixed the spices with the syrup. While the fish was cooking, I tossed a spring greens salad with balsamic vinaigrette, which was an excellent complement to the rice and the heat of the fish. Bust the fish wasn't the star it should have been. It was my fist time cooking Mahi Mahi and it seemed a bit bland, despite the Cajun spice. I will give it another try with different fish and see how that works for us. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
This is now my absolute favorite way to cook fish. Other reviewers have said that a lot depends on the cajun seasoning that you use, and it definitely does. My grocery store generic is way too mild for this, so I usually toss in a little cayenne pepper. I don't always like spicy food, but something about the mix of the sweet and the spicy just hits home for me. I definitely recommend this recipe, just remember that a lot depends on which cajun seasoning mix you use. But even with one that's too mild, it will still be good fish.
