I’m on a seafood diet, I see food and I eat it!
Blackened Mahi Mahi
For the mahi mahi
- 2 6 oz. pieces of mahi mahi skin off
- 3 tbsp. butter melted
- Old Bay Seasoning
- 1 lemon quartered
- 1/2 cup long grain rice
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- pinch turmeric
- 1 large zucchini sliced into 3/4 inch pieces
- 1 tbsp. butter
- kosher salt
- dried oregano
Prepare rice per package instructions with the addition of the salt and turmeric.
The Mahi Mahi
While the rice is cooking melt butter in a skillet or microwave. Dip the fish (both sides) in the butter and place them on waxed paper. Sprinkle both sides generously with Old Bay Seasoning.
Heat a pan (preferably cast iron) to medium high heat. I prefer to use the side burner on my gas grill for this. Place the fish on the hot pan and cook for 5 minutes on each side. When the fish is cooked squeeze fresh lemon over each piece (1/4 lemon each).
While the fish is cooking. sprinkle the zucchini slices with kosher salt and oregano. Add butter to a medium pan and fry the zucchini approx, 3 minutes per side.
Serve the mahi mahi on a bed of rice garnished with the lemon.
Did you know: Mahi Mahi is the Hawaiian name for dolphin, dolphin fish that is. Don't worry flipper is still safe.
