3 The Cook

  • When you’re at temp, put cooking oil on a folded paper towel. Grab the oiled paper towel with long-handled tongs and oil the grate thoroughly.
  • Place the mahi-mahi burgers over direct heat and cook for 3 minutes on each side, or until well browned and reaching an internal temperature of 145ºF.
  • Lightly toast your rolls, then dress each kaiser roll with chipotle-lime avocado spread and coleslaw, then add on a mahi-mahi patty and enjoy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Totally fell apart I put 4 on the grill and when I went to flip them the disintegrated. I finished the rest in an electric skillet. They were thoroughly chilled and yet one fell apart before I could cook it. Taste was great but a lot of effort
