    This is one of the things I find the cast iron grate is good for. I just sprinkle some tsunami spin and cook to about 125 internal. Come out great!

    Yes direct, I get the dome up to about 375 . They don't take long. One thing I have learned is they will stick to the grate if they are not ready to flip. EVO can prevent this.

    I usually blacken it in a cast iron pan.  Dip it in melted butter, coat it with blackening seasoning and cook it hot for about a minute per side.

    To me, there is something about blackened mahi that just tastes like it is the way it is supposed to be cooked.  If I eat it any other way it tastes good - but like something is missing.  I don't find that to be true of any other fish even though many of them are good when blackened.

    I like to season with S,P, onion powder, and garlic powder. Cook @ 375 til firm. It is a very savory flavor profile. Light on the garlic powder is best.
