Fresh caught Mahi Mahi is a grilled delight. The pressure was on as these were Daddy / Daughter caught fish and we were feeding a 10 people. No pressure since I had the privilege of grilling on a Big Green Egg. I had no trouble keeping the Egg temp under control- just below 400F or less. Its important to keep the filets moist as they cook. GrillGrates kept the Mahi Mahi steamy moist and seared it beautifully.
