Conch Reef Style Mahi-Mahi Fingers

My last fishing adventure was truely awesome! The ocean gods answered my prayer with a 25 lb. Mahi-Mahi.

The Mahi-Mahi was caught while trolling Conch Reef(identified on the map below).

I call this recipe "Conch Reef Style Mahi-Mahi Fingers".


2 pounds of Mahi-Mahi Fillets; cut into 1” Strips
2 Eggs
2 tablespoons of milk
½ teaspoon of pepper
½ cup of flour
1 teaspoon of cumin
1 teaspoon of garlic
1 tablespoon of hot or mild chili season
5 tablespoons of butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 Limes, Halved

Cooking Instructions 
  1. Pat Mahi-Mahi Fingers dry with a paper towel.
  2. Whisk together eggs and milk in a small bowl
  3. Combine salt, pepper, flour, cumin, garlic, and chili seasoning on a shallow plate.
  4. Coat fingers and flour mixture; dip in egg mixture, then into a flour mixture. Set aside to dry for 5 minutes.
  5. Melt butter and oil together in a heavy skillet over moderate heat.
  6. When butter foams, add the fingers; cook 3-5 minutes on each side until browned and cooked through. Serve with lime halves.
Yield 6 servings!
