  1. Toss the pineapple, cilantro, red onion, and lime juice together in a bowl until evenly mixed; set aside.
  2. Rub the mahi mahi fillets with the sesame oil to lightly coat.
  3. Sprinkle the sesame seeds evenly over one side of each fillets; gently press the seeds into the fish to assure they stick.
  4. Heat the vegetable oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat.
  5. Lay the fillets with the seeded side down into the hot oil; cook for 4 minutes, turn, and continue cooking until the flesh turns opaque and flakes easily with a fork, another 3 to 5 minutes. Serve with the pineapple mixture.

I was a little more excited about the thought of this recipe than its result. Still - it's solid, but with a few cautions. First - add the lime juice carefully and taste. You'll need more or ...

This dish was very easy to make and tasted fresh and delicious. I would definitely make it again.

Cilantro, pineapple, onion, sesame....this sounds amazing. Can't wait to make this!

I liked it but I'd cut down on the cilantro a bit.

Easy recipe and wonderful taste. I will definitely add this to my rotation.

The flavors don't really do anything to enhance the flavor of the Mahi Mahi. It's a delicious topping just addded to a bland fish.
