Battered and Fried Mahi Mahi
Recipe Type: Fish
Author: Rachel Oberg – De Ma Cuisine
Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 16 mins
Total time: 26 mins
Serves: 2-4
  • 1 package Mahi Mahi (about 1 lb.)
  • 1 C flour (or so)
  • 1 t paprika
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 3-4 C oil (I used canola)
  1. Mix flour, paprika, salt, and pepper in a shallow dish. Whisk egg in a separate shallow dish.
  2. Heat oil in a deep dish.
  3. Coat fish in flour mixture, then in egg, then in flour mixture again. (Try to keep one hand as a the “dry” hand, the other as the “wet” one.) Set aside on a separate plate.
  4. When oil is hot (I stuck the end of a wooden spoon in – when it bubbled a bit around it, it was hot enough – don’t know if this is a real method, but it worked) carefully add fish, 2-3 pieces at a time (you don’t want to add too much and cool the oil down too much – this will result in slower cooking time, which means the fish will absorb more oil, resulting in greasier fish). Cook about 3-4 minutes, then flip, and cook 2-4 minutes more (I wanted the internal temperature to get to 165F).
  5. Remove from pan and drain on a paper towel lined plate.
  6. Repeat with remaining fish (it took me 3 batches with about 1 lb. of fish).
