Two lovely peices. Suggestions please?

    This is one of my favorite light dishes:
    Place a touch of oil in the bottom of a saucepan so the fish doesn't stick. Season fish w/ s&p, place in saucepan. Spoon diced tomatoes on top of fish. Place sliced shallots, chopped garlic, and white wine around fish. Bring to a simmer and then lower heat (covered) until fish is done. Top w/ basil and serve!

    Simple but all of the flavors infuse together, yum!

      Lemon/caper/wine sauce dresses it up nicely without overwhelming. This also works cooked in a foil packet, which allows the mahi to stay soft.

        Fish tacos! Rub with a little cumin, chipotle and salt. Saute or grill and serve in warm corn tortillas with shredded cabbage, chopped cilantro, diced tomato and onion (if desired), lime wedges, and "sauce"- low-fat yogurt (or sour cream....or crema) mixed with enough mayo to take of the edge, a little adobo, a squeeze of lime.....

        I think I just made myself hungry :).

          Mahi sandwich. Or filets with a cream sauce (mustard, roasted red pepper). I find Mahi to be dry and in need of a sauce of some sort, or flavored butter. And yes, it is also called dolphin fish (not Flipper which is a mammal)

            Heh. I know it's not the mammal, but get a kick out of serving it sometimes and telling my guests they're eating dolphin fish.

              A simple dill sauce complements the fish excellently.

              It dries out very quickly. Do not over-cook it.

              BTW, you'll be eating dolphin fish.

                I tend to prefer mahi blackened just be sure not to tear all the skin off in the process. Goes great with beans and rice or even grits.
