Mahi Mahi Night



Fish dinner is a great meal if you’re in a hurry, plus the health benefits aren’t too bad! We try to incorporate some fish in to our menu each week; however it is not always easy to find sustainable, safe and fresh fish here in the midwest. This week we made some US Mahi Mahi fillets from Trader Joes, flash frozen to lock in nutrients and freshness. Plus they are on the “Good Alternative List”

If you are interested in how to choose seafood that are safe and environmentally sustainable, here is some information (thank you Katie!) for finding the right fishies:

there are slight differences but mostly the 2 sources match

These links include PDF’s of pocket guides that you print out and then can carry in your wallet!

So to make our fish bundle:

Place any 2-3 fish filets in a shallow pie plate covered with foil, spray with pam. Drizzle olive oil over, about 1 tablespoon, to coat the fish. Season with fresh minced garlic, slices of lime (or lemon), salt, and pepper. Bake uncovered in a 350 degree oven till fully cooked- this depends on the thickness of your fillet- follow packaging instructions. To serve, squeeze fresh lime or lemon juice over the top and sprinkle with fresh parsley.
Our sides included Butter Parsley Turnips and Oven Roasted Sweet Potatoes, please inquire if you are interested in those recipes!
