Dinner

Grilled Mahi Mahi Sliders with Mango Aioli

We had a guest chef in our house last night. Who, you might ask? I’ll give you some hints. 1) He is over seven feet tall. 2) He is an NBA legend and host of NBA on TNT. 3) He might be a genie. 4) Last but certainly not least, he has a great shoulder wiggle. I think you know who I’m talking about …

Here is the back story on how Shaquille O’Neal came to cook dinner for us. A few weeks ago, Steven Michael went grocery shopping and had an idea while walking the aisles. You see, we have had this great Mahi Mahi Slider recipe on deck for the blog, but it requires a grill and we perpetually have like 30 feet of snow here in Rochester, NY – conditions that don’t lend themselves to grilled fish for like half the year. Enter … THE SHAQ SMOKLESS GRILL AND PRESS. While at the grocery store, Steven Michael passed a similar countertop grill which sparked this epiphany, but being the thrifty shopper he is, he stopped at Target on the way home and discovered our new buddy, Shaq. (This is not a paid advertisement, we just really like it! #notanad)

And so, with our newfound favorite kitchen appliance, Steven Michael figured out how to make us these delicious fish sandwiches in the dead of winter. Truth be told, they are extra super amazing on a charcoal grill, as they are meant to be cooked, but we’re in week 67 of winter so …

I get really excited when Steven Michael makes these because they are filling but still light, and the sauce is just incredible. It’s creamy and fruity and everything a slider sauce should be. We paired these with some roasted brussels sprouts, carrots, mushrooms and onions. This is a great meal to have in your family repertoire because it is so fast and easy to make!
