Mahi-mahi is a very lean, moderately flavored, firm but moist fish, with solid flake. You could substitute amberjack, mullet, pompano, grouper, farm raised catfish, or cod.
- 2 onions, sliced
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tomatoes, seeded and chopped
- 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
- 1⁄4 cup white wine
- 1 tablespoon tomato paste
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt, divided
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper, divided
- 36 ounces mahi mahi fillets
- 4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
- 1 lemon, thinly sliced
- Heat olive oil over medium heat in saute pan. Saute sliced onions in the oil for about 8 minutes or until tender. Add tomatoes, parsley, white wine, tomato paste, garlic, 1/4 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp pepper. Simmer for 5 minutes. Set mixture aside.
- Lightly grease a rack, and line a broiler pan with aluminum foil. Place rack in broiler pan.
- Place fish, in a single layer, on the rack. Sprinkle with the remaining salt and pepper. Broil fish about 5 inches from heat for about 8 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
- Spoon the onion-tomato mixture evenly onto a platter. Place the broiled fish on top of the onion-tomato mixture.
- Sprinkle with crumbled feta, and garnish with lemon slices.
This recipe is excellent! My man never had mahi-mahi and was thoroughly impressed. Since I made 2 servings I didn't bother to open a can of tomato paste to use such a small amount. I didn't miss it a bit. THANK YOU!
Everyone loved this recipe (even the kids). I served it with mashed cauliflower and it was great. I used a little more tomato sauce than it called for and used cherry tomatoes cut in half. We grilled the fish instead of broiling it and it turned out great. Loved the sauce and I agree that it looks like an impressive dish when you present it on the table. Will make this one again for sure.
