After having this at a friend’s house for a dinner get-together, I had to have the recipe! Delicious!


  • 2 cups pineapple chunks
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon minced red onion
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 4 (8 ounce) mahi mahi fillets
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • ¼ cup white sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil


Toss the pineapple, cilantro, red onion, and lime juice together in a bowl until evenly mixed; set aside.

Rub the mahi mahi fillets with the sesame oil to lightly coat.

Sprinkle the sesame seeds evenly over one side of each fillets; gently press the seeds into the fish to assure they stick.

Heat the vegetable oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat.

Lay the fillets with the seeded side down into the hot oil; cook for 4 minutes, turn, and continue cooking until the flesh turns opaque and flakes easily with a fork, another 3 to 5 minutes. Serve with the pineapple mixture.
