Servings: 4
Preparation Time: 30 minutes


  • 2 cups black rice, cooked

Dairy Free Creamy Curry Sauce:

  • 1 cup coconut milk*
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1 lime, juice and zest
  • 1 teaspoon raw honey
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 teaspoons ground curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric

Mahi Mahi:

In a small saucepan, combine ingredients for curry sauce over low heat. Bring sauce to simmer, stirring frequently.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat coconut oil. Place mahi mahi fillets in the hot skillet and sprinkle both sides with a little salt and pepper. Cook fish for about 6-8 minutes on each side or until cooked through.

Place mahi mahi fillets on top of warm black rice and pour over a little curry sauce. Top with additional chopped cilantro and parsley, if desired.

*For the freshest coconut milk make homemade coconut milk. (See video at this link.)
