Orange Chimichurri Mahi Mahi

Serves: 4
Total Calories: 169


1/2 cup jarred chimichurri sauce
3/4 cup orange juice
1 1/2 pounds mahi mahi fish fillets, about 3/4 inch think, bones removed
oil for coating the grill rack
No-stick spray oil
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce, preferably Thai, such as sriracha
1 teaspoon garlic-flavored oil


Combine the chimichurri sauce and 1/2 cup of the orange juice in a plastic zipper bag. Add the fish, seal the bag, massage it to make sure the fish is completely moistened, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Set up a grill for direct grilling, and heat to medium-high. Brush the grill rack with oil before the grill is hot.

Meanwhile, mix the remaining orange juice, hot sauce, and garlic oil in a bowl, and set aside.

Remove the fish from the marinade, allowing a good amount of the herbs from the marinade to remain on its surface. Spray the flesh side of the fish with oil. Grill flesh-side down in a covered grill until browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Turn with a spatula and grill, covered, until the fish flakes to gentle pressure, 5 to 6 minutes more.

Transfer the fish to a platter by slipping a spatula between the skin and the flesh of the fish, allowing the skin to stay stuck to the grill rack (you can scrape it off later). Pour the reserved hot pepper sauce mixture over the fish before serving.
