Yummi Yummi Mahi Mahi
This was my effort to use up all our vegetables before going away on vacation, and the result was remarkably delicious! Scramble recipe tester Margaret Mattocks said this dish has “a bright, fresh, and satisfying flavor.”
- 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
- 1/4 yellow onion chopped about 1/2 cup
- 2 cloves garlic minced, about 1 tsp.
- 1 lb. skinless mahi mahi fillets, or use other firm white fish or boneless chicken breasts
- 1/4 tsp. salt or to taste
- 1/8 tsp. black pepper or to taste
- 2 tomatoes chopped
- 1/2 cup fresh flat leaf parsley chopped
- 1/2 lemon juice only, about 2 Tbsp.
- 2 tsp. capers optional
- In a large heavy skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic and sauté them for about 5 minutes until the onions are translucent.
- Push the onions and garlic to the sides of the pan and add the fish to the center of the pan. Season the fish with salt and pepper, to taste, and top it with the tomatoes, parsley, lemon juice and capers (optional).
- Cook the fish for about 4 minutes per side, flipping it once, until it is cooked through. (You can combine all the vegetables, stirring them gently, while the fish is cooking.)
- Serve the mahi mahi topped with the vegetables and pan sauce.
Slow Cooker Directions
- Combine all ingredients except the fish in the slow cooker. Add the fish, stacking if necessary. Gently spoon some of the mixture over the fish, and cook on low for 3-4 hours or on high for 1 1/2 - 2 hours, until fish flakes easily with a fork. (Slow cooker cooking times may vary—Get to know your slow cooker and, if necessary, adjust cooking times accordingly.)
Do Ahead or Delegate: Chop the onion, tomatoes and parsley, peel the garlic, juice the lemon. Scramble Flavor Booster: Double the garlic and serve the fish with freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Tip: If you’re trying to get something out of a narrow jar (like a jar of capers), try using a melon baller if you have one. It’s small enough to fit into jars that some spoons are too wide for.
