Subscibe to DEAL OF THE DAY
 


Lots of folks are spending much of the new year kickoff
focusing on health and that's a great start! Whether it’s
losing weight, exercising, kicking some bad habits, or just
plain eating healthy, we could all benefit from a little more
focus on our wellness. After crashing off the holiday season
of sweets and treats I think this is such a simple switch
with a great punch of flavor... yes in the microwave too!

I think we should actually call this Micro-yummy-mahi just
don't stunk up the microwave at work. I think this is even
excellent chilled and served later simply over some buttery
Boston Bibb lettuce like lettuce wraps. You could hit it on
the grill if you prefer too.

Enjoy!

A BIT MORE ON MAHI MAHI:

Mahi Mahi is often thought of as a Hawaiian fish, but it is
also found in warm waters around Florida and along the
Pacific Coast. Its flesh is dense and moist, with a mild,
slightly sweet flavor. Mahi mahi is a large fish; it is
usually sold as fillets or steaks. It is available both
fresh and frozen so it can be bought year round.

To store mahi mahi, remove packaging, rinse fish under cold
water, and pat dry with paper towels. Fish deteriorates when
it sits in its own juices, so place it on a cake rack in a
shallow pan filled with crushed ice. Cover with cling wrap
or foil and set in the coldest part of the refrigerator. Mahi
mahi will store well this way for up to two days.

(When well-wrapped, mahi mahi can be frozen for up to two
months in a freezer).
