Tonight, the dinner was fish. We try to eat more fish and chicken than red meat. So, since hubby and I don’t really like fish… I was in a mission of looking for tasty recipe for fish. We bought mahi-mahi because to us, it’s one of the best fish out there. Actually, you can use any kind of white flesh meat fish, such as tilapia, sea bass, bassa, etc. Don’t limit yourself with mahi-mahi.
What I did:
2 serving size Mahi mahi filets skinless/boneless.
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp. ground paprika
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 cups (or more) panko bread crumbs (Japanese bread crumb)
2 tsps olive oil- devided
oil to fry
Season both sides of the filets with the salt, pepper, and paprika. Spices are essential because panko is not flavored. Drizzle each filet with olive oil after you season them. Set aside. Marinade the fish for at least 4 hours or overnight. I marinated mine for overnight. When ready, before frying, coat both sides with the panko flakes.
Heat oil in a frying pan. The amount of oil to use really depends on the size of your skillet. You would kind of deep frying the fish. Oil should be hot, but not smoking.
Place the fish in the hot oil and fry each side for about 3 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the fish is flaky.
Drain excess oil on paper towels.
Serve with rice and mac salad! YUMM!!
Beware of over indulging yourself. It is sooooo good, and yet so simple!!
