Mahi mahi with orange, wine, garlic and thyme is a delicious and healthy meal that is as good looking as it is tasting.
|Prep Time||20 minutes|
|Cook Time||12 minutes|
- 46 ounce mahi mahi fillets
- 2 T butter
- 1 clove garlic
- 1/2 cup dry white wine
- 1 sprig thyme
- 2 T oranges juiced and zested save 1juice for slurry
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons butter
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Season the fish on both sides with salt and pepper. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add butter and sauté fish for 5 minutes on both sides or until golden brown. Place the fish in a single layer on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and keep warm in oven. (The general rule of thumb for cooking fish in a 400 degree oven is 10 minutes for each inch of thickness.)
- Meanwhile, deglaze the bottom of the pan with wine stirring to scrape up the bits of fond on the bottom. Increase the heat to medium high and add the garlic and thyme. Cook until reduced by about half. Stir in orange juice, and zest; Add the butter and stir until melted. Remove from heat immediately. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle the fish with the orange sauce.
This dish goes great with roasted fennel and saffron rice. You can also substitute chicken breasts for the fish. See "saffron rice" recipe on this website. © Galley Chef All Rights Reserved
