We love fish — well, Will and I do at least. Shawn? Not so much. But that’s okay. We tend to eat it when he has to work late, since fish is such a great source of nutrition.
Mahi mahi is one of my favorites, but it can be quite pricey, so pick some up when it’s on sale (it was last week!) and try this. The crunchy and moist coconut topping is fabulous with the firm, but light, white fish. Serve with a fruited salsa — Mango Salsa, perhaps.
In terms of nutrition, mahi mahi is relatively low in mercury (more than cod, less than halibut — nowhere near as much as swordfish. It does have omega 3 fatty acids, but not as much as other fish.
If you serve with a salsa, you can boost your antioxidants too (how’s that for a tie in to Sweetnicks‘ ARF/5-a-Day Tuesdays?).
