Coconut Herb Mahi-Mahi with Citrus Salad
I was given Healthy Solutions Spice Blends - Herb Crusted Tilapia to make this recipe.
2 fillets Mahi-Mahi
1 tbsp coconut oil melted
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2- 1 tsp Herb Crusted Tilapia Healthy Solutions Spice Blends
1/2 grapefruit cut into bite size pieces
1 Halo Mandarin Orange cut into bite size pieces (any type of orange would work)
1/4 cup pomegranate arils
1/4 cup cucumber diced
1/8 cup red onion diced
1 tsp red wine vinegar
Melt coconut oil, add lemon juice. Brush half of this mixture over both sides of the Mahi-Mahi
Sprinkle 1/2 to 1 tsp of the Spice Blend over both sides of the Mahi-Mahi. Marinate for approximately 20 minutes (the coconut oil will solidify while marinating, so you will see a white film over the fish).
Add the rest of the coconut/lemon juice mixture with left over Spice Blend in your pan. Heat pan over medium heat.
Place Maui Maui in pan and cook for approx 3-4 minutes, turn fish over and cook for approx 3-4 more minute until fish is a nice golden brown colour on both sides.
While the fish is cooking, cut vegetables and fruit into a bowl. Drizzle red wine vinegar over mixture and mix.
Serve Mahi-Mahi warm with salsa.
I ate mine with baked yams that I made by adding small amount of coconut oil and the Spice Blend and baked at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. A perfect healthy and simple meal to make.
