Mahi Mahi With Chimichurri Sauce & Broccolini

April 20, 2012 by Ali

Most people tend to pair chimichurri sauce with steak or chicken. Me? I love it on fish!

There’s something about the bright, fresh sauce that seems to pair perfectly with a mild, light fish like Mahi Mahi or tilapia. Even better when served alongside some yummy green broccolini! This simple meal takes all of 15 minutes to prepare, and is wonderfully delicious and healthy too.

Definitely a great meal to celebrate the arrival of summer, and all things fresh, light and green. Love it!

Mahi Mahi with Chimichurri Sauce & Broccolini

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 2 servings


  • 2 Mahi Mahi filets
  • sea salt and freshly-ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 bunch of broccolini (optional)
  • chimichurri sauce


Bring a large sauce pan filled halfway with water to a boil.

Take Mahi Mahi fillets and pat dry with a paper towel. Season both sides of the fish with salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat, then place the fillets in the pan. Cook 3-4 minutes on each side or until the fish is cooked-through and no longer translucent. Remove from skillet and let rest for a few minutes.

While the fish is cooking, add the broccolini to the boiling water. Cook for 5-6 minutes until tender. Remove broccolini, and place in an ice bath to stop cooking.

Top with chimichurri sauce and serve immediately with the broccolini.

Ali’s Tip:

To save a pan, you would also be welcome to cook the broccolini alongside the Mahi Mahi in the skillet.
