This is an authentic Bahamian recipe I was given on Bimini many years ago. This goes well with a nice salad, garlic bread and a bottle of good German white wine. If you like fish you will not have any leftovers!

Directions

  1. Arrange the fish fillets in an oven proof 9x13 glass baking dish. Pour the rum and lime juice over the fish and place a slice onion on each fillet. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  3. Remove fish from the refrigerator and pour off about 3/4 of the liquid. Leave the onion slices in the dish and place a thick slice of lemon on each fish fillet. Sprinkle with oregano and black pepper to taste. Place a pat of butter or margarine on each fillet.
  4. Bake, covered, at 350 degrees F (165 degrees C) for about 20 to 30 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Be careful not to over cook the fish or it will be dry. Serve with the cooked onion and lemon slices.

I'm sorry, but we did not care for this recipe. It was bitter and sour. Mahi Mahi is one of my families favorite seafood dish and we all left half the fish on our plates - not a good sign.

I also found it bitter and sour. There is no BODY to this recipe. I saved my fillets by sauteing the onions in a little butter. Then tossing in the fillets when onions are soft. Sprinkled little McCormick's Garlic Salt on top. Sauted for 1-2 minutes. Topped with graded parmesan cheese. YUMMY. now..NO LEFTOVERS.
