Herb Roasted Mahi-Mahi
Simple, sophisticated and delicious, this recipe for Herb Roasted Mahi Mahi is the perfect date night meal.
Mahi Mahi is such an easy fish to cook. It’s versatile in the flavors you can use with it, due to being such a mild fish, but it’s also perfect for different cooking methods. Mahi mahi, also known as dorado, offers a sweet succulent meat perfect for grilling, searing and baking. Its white, firm texture takes seasoning or marinating well, and because of this, the fillets will not fall apart while cooking. Here at Sizzlefish, our mahi mahi is caught in the Pacific off the coast of Ecuador, and is listed by Seafood Watch as a good alternative. Mahi mahi is a lean fish with high levels of protein, B vitamins, heart healthy potassium, selenium and Omega-3 fatty acids. All of this makes it a smart choice to add to your regular meal routine.
We really can not say enough about how much we love mahi mahi. Due to its mild flavor, it is perfect for fish skeptics as well! This recipe for Herb Roasted Mahi Mahi could not be easier or more versatile. We absolutely love the combination of fresh herbs and lemon roasted to perfection with these mild white fish fillets. The lemon and olive oil combine with the just bursting fresh tomatoes to create a dreamy herb sauce that coats the fillets while they roast. This recipe is a one pan meal, which is a life saver on busier nights. You simply place everything in the pan, place it in the oven and walk away. We recommend serving this meal with a fluffy jasmine rice, farro or quinoa to soak up all the goodness from the pan.
