Citrus Blackened Mahi Mahi with Southern Grits


Mahi Mahi Marinade:



Place the Mahi Mahi in a large bowl.  

Pour the marinade over the fish and coat evenly.  

Cover and place into the fridge for 30 minutes to an hour.




  • Pre Heat a large cast iron pan over medium-low heat.  
  • Cover the entire pan with a light layer of the Olive Amelia Blood Orange Olive Oil and your choice of avocado oil or coconut oil. 
  • Once the oil is heated, place the fish into the pan.  Do not overcrowd the pan. 
  • Cook each side for 4-5 minutes or until a crust has formed on the outside and the fish is cooked throughout. 
  • Move the fish to a towel-lined plate to remove excess oil. 

Southern Grits Ingredients: 



In a pot, add the grits, water, milk, Olive Amelia Blood Orange Olive Oil, Caribbean Jerk Rub & Seasoning, and sea salt.   

Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently.   Once at a boil, bring the heat to low and continue to stir often.   

Cook for 15 - 18 minutes. 

Remove from heat, once the grits have a nice thick consistency. 

Add in the Grateful Hill Farm Orange Blossom Special Goat Cheese and stir until combined. 


Plate the fish and grits and enjoy this delicious southern meal with a twist!
