  1. Heat a grill pan over medium heat.
  2. Stir coconut milk, 2 tablespoons cilantro, 2 tablespoons green onion, lime juice, ginger, garlic, and fish sauce together in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Brush the mahi mahi fillets with enough sauce to coat. Cook the remaining sauce at a boil until slightly thickened, 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Cook the mahi mahi in the grill pan until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 7 minutes per side. Transfer to a serving platter, top with the sauce, and garnish with 2 tablespoons cilantr and 2 tablespoons green onion to serve.

No mention in recipe as to what to do with the cilantro and green onion. I used as garnish when serving. With all of these flavorful ingredients, I thought this recipe would be power-packed wi...

Fish was good, but the sauce was surprisingly bland. Would not recommend this one.

very good - I baked it, just a little Olive Oil in bottom of glass pan, lay the fillets in and lightly salted them - poured the sauce over the top, covered with foil and baked 25 wa...

Made this for the people I nanny for and they both loved it! Will def make it again. He actually doesn't like coconut milk but said it was great before he knew what was in it. *I used half hoisi...

I added one crushed lemongrass stalk to the sauce and thai basil as a garnish. My toddler and DH both devoured it. I needed a bit more lime, but I also didn't measure it well.
