Greek-Style Mahi Mahi
(with a tomato-herb salad)
This fresh fish dish was so simple, it could easily be a weeknight meal, or delicious enough that it could be served during a sit down dinner. Use on a fish “steak” if you need to switch it out to the fish on sale.
As for the tomato salad, I loved using the same fresh herbs on these brightly-colored tomatoes.
· 4 (6-ounces) pieces mahi mahi fillet (1 1/2 inches thick) with skin
· 1/4 cup crumbled feta
· 3 tablespoons chopped mint
· 2 tablespoons chopped dill
· 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
· 8 very thin lemon slices
· 3 medium tomatoes (about 3/4 pound total), each cut into 8 wedges
· 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
· 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
Tomato Salad: Toss tomatoes with 2 tablespoons oil, vinegar, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Set Aside
Fish: Line a broiler pan or sheet pan with foil or parchment paper and lightly oil. Put fish, skin sides down, on pan and season with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. (note: if you are watching your sodium, omit the salt due to the feta having plenty.)
Whisk together mayonnaise, feta, herbs, and lemon juice and spread over top of fish.
Put 2 lemon slices on center of each fillet.
Drizzle lemon slices with remaining 2 teaspoons oil.
Broil fish 8 inches from heat until just cooked through, 14 to 16 minutes.
If topping browns before fish is cooked, cover loosely with foil. Serve fish with tomato salad.
