Chef's Note

An original idea from Ottmar’s Restaurant in the Grand Pavilion Centre on Grand Cayman Island

In keeping with the Caribbean flavour of this dish, we suggest serving it with local vegetables such as steamed cho-cho (chayote) and roasted slices of breadfruit.

Mahi mahi, or dorado, is sometimes called “dolphin” in the Cayman Islands. You can substitute any mild white firm-fleshed fish, such as turbot, for the mahi mahi.
