Mahi Mahi * with Cucumber-Tomato Relish
This was quite tasty. I adapted this from a recipe I found on the internet to make a spicy cold salsa to heap upon lemon-pepper mahi.
1 cup of cucumber (remove seeds and chop into little cubes)
1 large tomato
1 leek, sliced very thinly
2 cups of cooked shrimp, cut into small pieces
about half a cup of diced jalapeno pepper (the kind in the jar worked for me)
juice from 2 limes
shit ton of fresh dill
Tony Chachere's Cajun seasoning
1 ripe avocado
lemon pepper seasoning (commercial kind in the spice section)
4 pieces of mahi mahi
4 tbsp of butter
Put the tomato, cucumber, dill, peppers, leeks, lime juice, shrimp, salt, and Tony's into a bowl. Let it marinade for 1 hour.
Then, pan-fry the fish with the lemon pepper on both sides in the butter. Put some of the relish and some avocado slices on top.
NOM NOM NOM NOM.
* This recipe was really tasty, but the mahi itself was mediocre because Miss Cordelia's sucks. This relish would also have tasted great on some tilapia, grouper, or mahi mahi from Fresh Market. The fish at Cordelia's is hit or miss. The night after the mahi mahi, we got some catfish that was not good.
Don't cry for Miss Cordelia though, despite my rant, there is no doubt whatsoever that I will continue to drop a large percent of my resources on overpriced Triscuits, warm beer, and milk that is about to expire. I might just trek on out to the wilderness of Not Downtown for my future fish needs.
