Aloha Mahi Mahi

Ok, so this isn’t a Hawaiian recipe.  But Honolulu was where I was first introduced to Mahi Mahi.  On my 18th birthday, no less.  I’m pretty sure I’ve always been a foodie.

This is a quick, easy, moist and tasty oven-fried fish dish.  No kidding.

Garlic and Pepper Crusted Mahi Mahi

2 T butter, melted

1 T fresh lemon juice

1/2 c dry bread crumbs

1/2 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1 1/2 pounds mahi mahi fillets*

slices of fresh lemon (optional)

Stir melted butter and lemon juice in a bowl.  Set aside.  Combine bread crumbs, paprika, pepper and garlic powder in a bowl.  Dip mahi mahi into butter and lemon juice, then into crumb mixture, coating all sides.  Place in single layer in lightly-oiled baking dish.  Bake at 450°.  Depending on the thickness of the fillets, bake about 10-20 minutes.  The fish will flake when tested with a fork.  Serve with lemon slices to make it look pretty.  Makes 4-6  servings.

*Options: halibut, or your choice of firm white fish fillets.

Note: I recommend purchasing frozen, individually vacuum sealed fish portions.  This is the next best thing to getting it right off the boat.  Plus, you’ll have it on hand.
