Seafood is something I can't live without and I am sure many would nod in favor to what I say! Well, I came across this interesting dish at a housewarming party few months back. Ever since I have sunk my teeth into the grilled mahi mahi dish, I must say, I have found excuses for cooking the same whenever I get the chance. This makes a very delicious and interesting dish to prepare and to gorge on as well. Friends have been kind with me to share some yummy recipes. Let's have a look at them.

Recipe 1

Ingredients
  • White wine, ½ cup
  • Shallot (minced), 1
  • Garlic cloves, 2
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, 1 tablespoon
  • Walnuts (chopped), ⅓ cup
  • Mahi mahi fillets, 6 ounces
  • Salt and ground black pepper, according to taste
  • Butter, 1 tablespoon
  • Salt, ¼ teaspoon
  • Fresh cilantro leaves, ¼ cup
  • Parmesan cheese (shredded), 2 tablespoons
  • Red bell peppers (roasted), 12 ounces
  • Ground black pepper, ⅛ teaspoon
Preparation

Begin by preheating an outdoor grill. Then, place the shallot and the wine in a saucepan kept over medium-high heat. Boil this mixture and then, reduce the heat. Let the liquid reduce to half. Once done, remove the pan from the heat, and place it aside.

Meanwhile, blend the walnuts, cheese, and garlic in a blender. Add in the cilantro with the olive oil. Sprinkle some black pepper. Blend till the mixture turns smooth. Place the cilantro mixture aside in a separate bowl.

Now, add the red peppers to the food processor. Add the wine mixture to this, and blend till it smoothens. Once done, pour the entire mixture into the saucepan and boil it over medium-high heat. Then reduce the heat and let it simmer for 4 minutes.

At the same time, use some salt and pepper and season the mahi mahi fillets. Cook them on the preheated grill till the fish turns a shade of golden brown. Cook for about 4 minutes on both sides. Meanwhile, mix the butter with the black pepper and salt and add this to the red pepper sauce. Whisk it till it smoothens and spoon this sauce on the bottom of the serving plate. Place the mahi mahi fish fillets over this. Serve the fish with the cilantro mix prepared earlier.

  • Soy sauce, ¼ cup
  • Lime (juiced), 1
