Mahi Mahi with a "mirin-q" glaze

I grilled some thick mahi mahi fillets on my Egg tonight for my wife and youngest son. I don't like fish but they love it, so I cook it for them during the summer.

Seasoned the fillets with DP Raging River. Grilled them flesh side down for 3 minutes at 350f and then flipped them skin side down.


I made a glaze out of
1/3 cup commercial bbq sauce
2 Tbsp mirin
2 Tbsp dry sherry (still seemed wet to me, ha ha)
1.5 tsp sesame oil

I glazed them at 5 minutes after the flip (8 total now) because I thought they would be done soon.


But since my coals were almost empty, they were farther from the grate (aka grid) and ended up taking another 5-7 minutes. If I had the coal up to the top of the fire box, it would have gone quicker.


The fish disappeared quickly. The glaze was perfect for grilled meaty fish like dolphin. If I was making it for me, I would have added a 1/4-1/2 tsp of red pepper flake or maybe Sriracha sauce.

    Looks terrific, must taste terrific. :)
    Chris, why don't you like fish? You make it soooo good.

    Have you tried blackened fish? Ya get a nice crust going and it's a treat. Flavors are up threw the roof, tender moist large flakes in the center with a crunch to the outside crust. No skin, no bones, no kidding. Blackened fish might change your mind and it's a blast to cook as well.

    As a matter of fact, yep, just this week:

    My son brought home some redfish he caught. I did try one bite. I loved the flavors, hated the fish, lol.

    Hey Chris, sometime try putting Mayo on your fish along with the rub, gives it a nice glaze finish! :)

    Will do frank, I've never heard of that before (but I don't cook much fish).

    8 years ago I would have said, "Frank are you crazy? Mayo?" but I loves me some Alabama white BBQ sauce on chicken so these days it totally makes since to me:)

    Looks nice!

    How do you like those grates?

    Isn't mayo just tartar sauce without the pickle relish? :huh:
