We eat fish about three times a week to get our dose of Omega 3. My husband does all the grocery shopping, and fortunately, there are always different fish for sale each week.
He often finds a small bin in the meat department that has bargain fish, which is normally very expensive. Eating healthy while saving money is a win-win situation.
Many people stay away from cooking fish as they often don’t know what to do with it or how to use the best seasonings.
I want to share a few favorite recipes for Mahi Mahi which is a tender and solid fish and does not have that “fishy taste or smell.” I do like the fact that fish cooks up fast though the downside is that it’s easy to overcook in a matter of minutes.
1 large piece of Mahi Mahi (easily serves 2) – about 10 to 12 ounces
3 tablespoons of grapeseed oil
1/2 cup of chopped cilantro
1/2 cup of chopped fresh onions
1 tablespoon of low sodium soy sauce
Spices: 1 teaspoon each of basil, rosemary, lemon pepper spice, garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
*Brown rice and sliced cucumbers go nicely with this dish.
I rarely serve fish to company because if it should somehow get overcooked it is almost inedible.
For the marinade
*Serve with couscous, steamed carrots and a small green salad.
