Wasabi Grilled Mahi Mahi with Grilled Brussels Sprouts


This simple dinner can be done on the grill in a matter of minutes. The sprouts take about the same amount of time as the fish. You can also use Ahi Tuna for this method. We are fortunate to have an abundance of fresh local Mahi Mahi and Ahi in Hawaii. If you live in a land locked location, you may use frozen defrosted mahi mahi fillets.

Preheat your grill and then turn the flame down to medium

The Fish
2 filets of Mahi Mahi

Sweet Soy Sauce (Available in Asian Markets, also known as Kecap or Indonesian Soy Sauce.)

Wasabi Paste in a Tube
Dark Sesame Seeds 

Place the fish on a plate, coat with the sweet soy sauce on both sides. Place on a medium grill for 3 minutes, flip and then spread about a tablespoon of wasabi on the filets. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and finish cooking, about another 3 minutes.
The Brussels Sprouts
This is my favorite way to make Brussels sprouts. It is simple and fast and retains fresh flavor and nutrients.
12-15 Brussels sprouts stem end cut off and then cut in half
Olive Oil
Smoked Salt
Freshly cracked black pepper
Crushed Red Pepper
Place the sprouts in a bowl, toss with a generous amount of olive oil, add salt and pepper to taste. Keep in mind that when grilling a good bit of the seasoning sticks to the grill, so be generous in seasoning.

I usually serve this with coconut rice. It would also be great with mashed potatoes. I also sometimes serve this with grilled pineapple, as shown.
