    A neighbor of mine just gave some Dorado that he has had in his freezer. I didnt ask how long he had it seeing as how he was giving it to me for nothing...question is...can anyone tell me a good way to prepare it. I have never tried it before so I would like to cook it in a way that does not over power the flavor.

    Here's my favorite...also use it for Mahi.

    3 tomatoes, medium diced
    1/2 bunch scallions, thinly sliced
    2 red onions, small diced
    1 teaspoon ground cumin, plus 1 tablespoon
    1/3 cup olive oil, plus 1/3 cup
    4 tablespoons aged Sherry vinegar
    1 serrano, very finely diced
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    8 ounces white beans
    Water, for boiling
    1 bay leaf
    1 white onion, cut into large diced
    4 garlic cloves, sliced
    2 tablespoons dry oregano
    12 (3-ounce) dorado or mahi-mahi fillets, skin off
    Olive oil, for cooking


    In a mixing bowl, combine tomatoes, scallions, red onions, 1 teaspoon cumin, 1/3 cup olive oil, sherry vinegar, and serrano. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Set aside for 2 hours.


    In a large stock pot place white beans and cover with 3 times the amount of water. Add bay leaf. Boil until beans are tender at least 1 hour. Strain beans.

    In a medium size saute pan, saute onions and garlic with 1/3 cup olive oil until translucent. Add oregano and 1 tablespoon cumin until aromatic.
    In a food processor, puree beans and onion mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

    Season the fillets with salt and pepper. In a medium size saute pan, heat a little olive oil and cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side.
    To serve, place puree in large serving platter. Set fish on top of puree and top with tomato relish.

    If I am correct, it's close to the tuna family. I could be wrong. I know that it is usually called Mahi Mahi(?)

    Foil wrapped and grilled or baked.

    Lay it on heavy foil wrap, plenty of butter, a few onion slices, wrap it tightly and put the heat to it. Flip it over after about 5 mins., wait another 5 or 6 mins., unwrap, add a bit of lemon if you like, or more lemon butter and you might just eat the whole thing. Don't forget the seasonings of your choice. I just add some salt and pepper.

    You have a great eating fish, it is dolphine, not flipper but a fish.

    It is best cooked in a dish washer, wrap it in aluminum foil. it is so tasty. It will over cook very fast.

    I have heard of folks doing fish in the dish washer but, I always thought it was a joke?

    Dorado is just another name for Mahi Mahi most people around Mexico and South America call them Dorado.

    I may be wrong, but the Dorado name was given to them because of the amount of bleeding. I've read its crazy.

    I read on line that Mahi-mahi is a Hawaiian word that means "strong-strong" for dolphin fish/dorado.
