MAKE BEAUTIFUL FOOD!
Food is my creative outlet. I love cooking the food almost more than actually eating it.
This was my first mahi mahi / veggie bake but it turned out great :) and it was so easy.
I buy my fish frozen from good 'ol Costco. Choose however many pieces you need (here I used 4) and put them in a large bowl with with hot water. You may need to change the water 2 or 3 times but this is the fastest way to thaw. Don't even think about microwaving this shit.
Prep oven to 400 degrees.
While the fish thaws, prep your pan and veggies. I always line my pans with tin foil and spread coconut oil (also from Costco) over it to make clean up easy.
I always have veggies around the house. And honestly, I choose combinations based on the colors and how I think they will look together. Super scientific I know.
This time I grabbed green beans and a chocolate bell pepper. Hy-Vee just started carrying them, and yes, I chose them because I liked the color.
Rinse your fish and spread them evenly in the pan. Then sprinkle in your veggies. Add an herb over your fish. This time I used parsley from my cousin's garden.
I used 2 lemons for this dish. The first I cut in half and squeezed over everything. The second I sliced up for decoration and to keep the fish moist.
Then sprinkle / season with pink Himalayan salt, fresh ground pepper, garlic salt, onion powder and chili powder.
I baked it for 15 min at 400 degrees. If you like the fish a little flakier put back in for another 3-5 minutes. Flaky fish is great for fish tacos!!
You can eat it like this or if you want to add on - transfer finished dish to a large skillet over medium heat and coconut oil.
Dice up 2 tomatoes and saute everything until the liquid starts to reduce. Throw in a couple handfuls of spinach and top with some shredded cheese or Greek yogurt.
