 Daddy issues:
My girl jumps me every-time after I cook out on the grill. Today i went old-school charcoal. Ignitor fluid and hot coals. She says it reminds her of camping in the summer when she was a kid, of  her father and how the smell would stick to her hair and clothes.

The recipe: 

I grilled up some Mahi-Mahi  filets - we in Florida call more commonly Dolphin. My friend/ co-worker went to Bimini Bahamas last weekend for Memorial day and on the way up caught enough to share.  

"An olive-oil marinade with black pepper, cayenne pepper, fresh garlic, and lime imparts loads of flavor to mahi mahi in this recipe."
3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 pinch salt
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/8 teaspoon grated lime zest
2 (4 ounce) mahi mahi fillets
2 twists lime zest (optional)
1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate.
2. Whisk the extra-virgin olive oil, minced garlic, black pepper, cayenne pepper, salt, lime juice, and grated lime zest together in a bowl to make the marinade.
3. Place the mahi mahi fillets in the marinade and turn to coat; allow to marinate at least 15 minutes.
4. Cook on the preheated grill until the fish flakes easily with a fork and is lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
5. Garnish with the twists of lime zest to serve.
