"Barbecue" Rub

  1. 2 tablespoons Spanish paprika
  2. 1 tablespoon ancho chile powder

  4. 2 teaspoons dark brown sugar
  5. 1 teaspoon chile de arbol powder
  6. 1 teaspoon kosher salt

Mahi Mahi

  1. Four 1/2 pound mahi mahi fillets
  2. 4 teaspoons olive oil
  3. Cilantro leaves
  4. Yellow Pepper-Cilantro Pesto
  1. Heat your grill to high. Make the "Barbecue" Rub by combining all the ingredients in a bowl. Brush each mahimahi fillet on both sides with the oil. Rub 1 side of each fillet with 1 tablespoon of the "Barbecue" Rub and grill, rubbed side down, until slightly charred and a crust has formed, 2 to 3 minutes.
