Pan Roasted Mahi Mahi with Zippy Fresh Basil Butter Sauce

On sale this week: Mahi Mahi fillets. Nothing else in this recipe is on sale but all the ingredients are very inexpensive and most are pantry items you already have. If you bought some fresh basil leaves for the Sun-dried Tomato Chicken Breast then the basil is essentaily free for this recipe.

Pan Roasted: Our recipe calls for two step cooking process. First very quickly sauté the fillets in a pan on the stove top, then move it into a low temperature oven for a slow oven roast which will bring out the delicate flavors and preserve the moisture. Move the fish from the hot sauté pan into a baking dish before placing the fish in to oven. While it slow roasts in the oven you can make the fresh basil butter sauce in the sauté pan.

Ingredients

  • 4 (5 to 6 ounce) Mahi Mahi fillets
  • Salt and pepper to season the fish
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil for the skillet
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter (if you use salted butter we won’t tell anyone)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 large garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, plus additional for seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus additional for seasoning
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 200-220
  2. Heat olive oil in a sauté skillet over medium heat. Season Mahi Mahi with salt and pepper, then cook for 2 minutes on each side. Move fish to a baking dish and place in the oven.
  3. Reduce stove top to low, pour off excess oil out the skillet, place butter, lemon juice, garlic, salt, into the skillet. Cook until the butter melts, add basil. Keep warm until the fish is cooked.
  4. Fish is cooked when it reaches an internal temperature of about 122°. An easy and foolproof way to check to see if the fish is cooked is to pierce the fish with a metal cake tester or a small paring knife, then touch the cake tester or knife to your lip; if the cake tester is warm (not cool) the fish is done.

Wine Pairings

  • The butter sauce moves us to Chardonnay territory, for instance the Firestone Discovery Chardonnay which is on sale this week.
  • The Italian Rondineto (a pinot grigio?), on sale, would be an acceptable choice.
