    Ambrosia's Note:

    I came up with this because I wanted something healthy, easy, and fast. I've mad it several times with great results! Any firm white fish will work. I make it for one, but it can easily be made for any number of people. I have made this "south beach" style with sauted spinach and mushrooms as a side, or served it over pasta with white wine sauce as a more hearty "non-diet" meal.

      My family thought this was the best version of Mahi Mahi EVER! I followed the recipe as is, but did not have regular paprika and subbed smoked paprika. Excellent dish and very flavorful! Never cooked in parchment paper before. Very easy and yummy. This recipe does not specify amounts, but I would say I used a whole clove of garlic chopped fine, per filet. I also used a fair amount of the seasoning and oil & vinegar. Maybe that made the difference for the flavor.

      Absolutely yummy!! I hesitated to make this recipe because I thought the Italian flavors might be too much for me. I was wrong! I used fresh tomatoes and basil from my garden and followed the recipe exactly. My entire family loved it. I also made homemade tartar sauce using basil, capers, onion, garlic and lemon juice with a olive oil mayo base. It was a meal worthy of a fine restaurant. Great recipe! Thanks for sharing! I'll be making this again!

      This was GREAT!! Wonderful balance of all flavors. I did cook longer than recommended since I was using foil instead of parchment. I will definitely make this again. Thanks Amber
