2 (6 ounce)
mahi mahi fillets
Instead of grilling I floured and pan seared the fish (medium flame) with a little butter. Browned both sides, lowered the flame, covered it, when almost cooked I poured 1 tbls of sauce and covered again. Fish remained seared and not soggy. I roasted flaked coconut w a pinch of raw sugar in a little butter then added the cilantro/green onion topping. To serve: pour some sauce on the plate; place the fish on top of sauce, top with the roasted coconut topping. Served with a side of white rice and black beans. AMAZING!
No mention in recipe as to what to do with the cilantro and green onion. I used as garnish when serving. With all of these flavorful ingredients, I thought this recipe would be power-packed with flavor. Not the case. Unfortunately, I found it a bit bland. Sorry, only 3*'s from me.
The ingredient list calls for green onions and cilantro but the recipe instructions does not include them. I added these two ingredients at the same time as everything else. When I made this recipe most of the sauce was cooked of but it still turned out tasting great. I will definetly make this again sometime.
I would say this was a 3.5-4 recipe; pretty good but nothing amazing. It definitely needed some salt and no skimping on the ginger--needs all of it for the right flavor. I think the lemongrass & thai basil other reviewers used would've really made this even more delicious. We all liked it enough to make it again but will probably keep playing with it. Other big change I did, to make it easier was to just cook the fish in the coconut sauce. It was very moist & flavorful & made this dish even easier to make.
I added one crushed lemongrass stalk to the sauce and thai basil as a garnish. My toddler and DH both devoured it. I needed a bit more lime, but I also didn't measure it well.
Great flavor in the coconut sauce. I followed directions nearly all the way, but also threw in some of the sauce with the fish during the end of the cooking time. It kept the meat nice and moist. A super easy and delicious main dish.
