Reviews for Coconut-Mango Mahi Mahi for Two
"This recipe was so-so; my husband really liked it, but I wasn't overly impressed. It is fast to make, which is nice for weeknight meal. But mahi-mahi really doesn't need breading; I think it masked the fish's natural flavor. I'll only make it again if my husband requests it."
