Spicy Lime & Cilantro Mahi Mahi
Using the flavor combinations in this dressing I created this simple marinade that can also be used for the sour cream topping. What can be easier than making a marinade once that is carried through the entire dish?
- The zest and juice from two limes
- 1 Tablespoon rice vinegar
- 1-2 cloves of garlic minced
- 1-2 tsp of adobo sauce
- 1 Tablespoon honey
- 1/2 tsp salt (kosher if you have it on hand)
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- lime wedges
- 2 3 oz pieces of Mahi Mahi or your favorite fish
- 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

Add the remaining marinade and fish to a zipper top bag, remove as much air as possible, seal and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
