Serves 4 People

  • 4 bolillo rolls, or 4 soft hoagie rolls, toasted
  • 4-5 oz. Mahi Mahi fillets
  • 1 cup daikon radish, finely julienned
  • 1 cup carrot, finely julienned
  • 1 English cucumber, seeds removed and finely julienned

Preheat a charcoal or gas grill to medium high heat. Sprinkle the fish fillets with salt and pepper. Spray liberally on both sides with cooking spray. Grill the fish 2-3 minutes on each side, or until desired doneness is reached.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine mayonnaise and sriracha.

Spread the spicy mayonnaise on each roll, then top with the grilled fish.

Layer the daikon, carrot, cucumbers, watercress and herbs over the fish.
