Lemon Cilantro Mahi Mahi
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 medium lemons
1 tsp olive oil
1 mahi mahi steak
4 small cloves of garlic
salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp feta cheese
*This is a very quick fish to make so any sides that you'd like to add I'd suggest making them ahead of time. I whipped up a very easy salad to place my mahi mani over.
Take two handfuls of lettuce mixed in a bowl with 1 tbsp olive oil, salt and pepper to taste and a tbsp of feta cheese. Set aside on your plate. Set you oven to 400 degrees to heat up.
Zest one lemon, chop your garlic and chop 1/4 cup cilantro. Place in a small bowl. Cut one lemon in half and set aside.
Cut your mahi mahi into small steaks. Add1 tsp of olive oil in a pan on medium heat. Sear your steaks about 1-2 minutes on each side. Be sure not to over cook.
Place steaks on tinfoil. Add your cilantro mix on top. Put into a 400 degree oven and cook for 3-5 minutes depending on the thickness of your steaks.
Place steaks on top of salad, pour yourself a nice glass of Chardonnay and enjoy!
