    spatchcock's Note:

    Mined this off the web and made my own version of it for dinner. I had some frozen mahi mahi from Tader Joe's and it was so perfect with the tomato basil sauce! Do not sub the sauce--or if you do, consider adding some of the below ingredients, like fish sauce. The sauce is a little sweet and goes especially well with seafood. This is also really, really easy--good weeknight meal.

      I used canned Italian style diced tomatoes and only two diced garlic cloves. I also omitted the basil leaf because the tomatoes were already seasoned and did not use tomato paste as I did not have any. Used soy sauce and lemon juice. This was very tasty and paired well with the fish. I cooked the fish until almost done, made the sauce and simmered it for a few minutes then put the fish back into the pan to finish cooking. Would definitely make this dish again.

      I made this on mahi we caught in Key West. I think the topping was acceptable, but seemed a bit too Italian for our mahi tastes.

      Great recipe. We were concerned that the amount of garlic called for would be overpowering, but it wasn't at all! skipped the sugar, used lemon and soy. Terrific flavor all around. Thanks! Andiamo
