Tomato Basil Mahi Mahi

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.

    Great tasting, versatile sauce! Like the other reviewers I used soy sauce instead of fish sauce as my kids didn’t want me to go there, but I will try it next time. I used shrimp as that was what I had and added a little crushed red pepper when stung the stick etc. I also did not sweeten the sauce. With the crushed red pepper, soy and no sugar what you get is a light, savory, fresh-tasting tomato sauce that can be used in a multitude of ways with other proteins. We served it on fettuccine and sprinkled Parmesan. As I said, if I use this with seafood again I will definitely try the fish sauce. I would love to add the photos I took with my phone, but this disgusting site is trying to force me to utilize Facebook to post them. I hope you all complain, I know I will.

    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

    This was sooooo good! Just like our favorite Italian restaurant. I was generous with all the ingredients and served the fish with garlic mashed potatoes. I used tin foil to make the packets instead of parchment and it worked great, held in all the yummy sauce. It was the perfect light healthy flavorful meal for a romantic dinner with my husband on a warm spring night... watching the sun set over the mountains... thanks for the recipe! We love it!! namaste :)

    I'm not usually a huge fish fan, but I try to eat it for health reasons. This was the best fish recipe I've ever made! The tomato and basil really seam to cover up the "fish" flavor (which is a good thing in my mind). I made it just like the recipe says and found it quite flavorful. I will definitely make this again.
