Because nothing is better than great food... except enjoying it with someone special!


Mahi Mahi with Lemon and Capers


Labels: ,

After our vacation of eating out most nights, we needed a comforting, home-cooked meal. Mahi Mahi is a nice fish because it is hearty enough to fill us up with just a small piece, but is much lighter than most meats. The red potatoes are super easy and are a great side dish for any meal.

What you'll need:
-About half a pound of mahi mahi
-1/2 tsp. sea salt
-1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper
-1 tsp. parmesan cheese
-1 1/2 tbsp. butter
-1 garlic clove, minced
-2 tbsp. capers
-the juice from 1/2 lemon
-1 tsp. cream cheese
-1 large red potato
-1 tbsp. + olive oil

What to do:
Preheat oven to 375ºF.

Slice potato as thin as possible. In covered baking dish, toss with olive oil (replace olive oil with butter for a richer taste), 1/4 tsp. sea salt and 1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper. Cover and bake for 45 minutes or until potato slices are soft, tossing occasionaly.

Melt 1/2 tbsp. butter in a frying pan. On one side of the fish, sprinkle evenly the parmesan and the remaining salt and pepper. Place seasoned side down in frying pan over medium-high heat. Continue to sear the fish for about 3-5 minutes, or until seasoning has crusted on outside. Place seasoned side up on baking sheet. Bake for about 25 minutes, or until cooked through (will turn white when cooked through).

In a small sauce pan, melt remaining 1 tbsp. of butter over low heat. Add garlic, capers and lemon juice and turn heat to medium. Continue to stir until boiling. Reduce heat to low and whisk in cream cheese (to give the sauce a creamier texture).

Separate fish into two serving sizes, and drizzle sauce over each. Garnish with potatoes and any fresh herbs you have available. Enjoy!
