    I used mahi mahi and this was just a bit too plain. The olive oil didn't really pick up any of the flavors from the garlic or chile. I used a fresh Fresno chile and the flavor of the chile was the best part of this.

    Using skinless mahimahi, I wasn't able to truly test the cooking technique in the recipe, but I can attest to the deliciousness of the chile-garlic dressing on both the fish and the accompanying boiled potatoes (a recommended side). I used the outdoor grill to cook the fish and made the dressing simultaneously in a small pan on the side burner.

    Pg. 320 This was delicious. Plain and simple. A hot skillet on the stovetop was the "grilling" method. I reversed the cooking order because it just made sense to me: Instead of cooking the fish first I made the sauce before the fish was cooked otherwise the fish would have cooled while the sauce was being made... Monkfish is the fish she uses for the recipe but gives many alternatives so I chose haddock fillets, with skin left on. Usually I would expect this to be served with lemon wedges but this didn't seem to need anything else, not even pepper. We loved the delicate garlic flavor with the super fresh fish.
