Followed others advice and increased both the amount of lime in the marinade (doubled it) and the time for marination (about two hours). The fish had very little flavor. We ended up squeezing ...

I added 3 tbs of Lime; cooked mahi mahi in a cast iron skillet with the entire marinate.... seemed to lock in the flavor!

Very yummy and very easy! I've made this twice now and the only change I made the 2nd time around was adding more lime juice. Love this!

So delicious! I'm 15 and just made this recipe- easy, and the whole family loved it, parents and little brother! YUM!

Super good! I did not have lime so I used lemon and kids and hubby loved it!!

Perfect! So easy and quick. Perfect for a quick weeknight meal. I served mine with a glass or rose wine and a side of zucchini. Used extra lime in the marinade. I will definitely use this recipe...

This was really good. I made this in a pan with 3 Tbs of oil and added another Tbs of lime and another clove of garlic. Will make this again. VERY TASTY!

I thought it was sort of blah, but hubby LOVED it.

Loved it! Great flavor. I was afraid at first there would not be enough flavor. I did let it some of it marinate for 1 hour and it was good but I let some marinate for 6 hours...much better. ...
