Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

I have a couple mahi filets

Still a newbie here.  This would be my first fish on the egg.  Any suggestions?

  • Coat them lightly with mayo and grill. The mayo will stop them from sticking.

    Oil or like Steve said, mayo (even though I've never tried that), season with old bay or something - or just salt n peppah.  Then cook direct like a steak at medium high maybe 450, both sides, make pretty grill marks, dome closed until the inside is just opaque or 135 F if you have an instant read.  Probably take around 10 minutes give or take.

  • Nola, Mayo works like a treat. Doesn't seem to burn off as much as oil and it adds almost no flavour.

    This is all I use. Or S&P is very good as well.

  • biggest  and most common mistake with grilled fish is overcooking it. It should still be a little opaque in the middle. I still do fish by feel and I can't find the sweet spot on the thermapen. Love mahi on the egg. I'm a salt and pepper guy

  • Mickey,

    I learned the trick from Little Chef (Michelle) in the other forum. Poolcreature and I went on a charter and I took a six pound filet to the Ocala afterparty. I dumped it on her to cook and she did it with the mayo. It was golden brown and wonderful. Not a scrap stuck to the grid. Been using it ever since

  • I used the mayo, salt and pepper and did it right over 400 degrees for 10 minutes.  Came out great.  Thanks for all the help.

    I did mahi mahi last night as well, though I glazed it in teriyaki sauce. I seared it on the skin side first, so I could peel it off after a couple of minutes, leaving more surface for the glaze to adhere.

    Little Steven on the mayo. Do you taste it or see it after cooking?

  • Mayo works great! Just make sure it's not fat free mayo. It's the fat that prevents the meat from sticking
