Today’s Menu: Blackened Mahi Mahi and Mango Salsa w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice and Sliced Carrots

 

 

Blackened Mahi Mahi Mango Salsa 001

Back down to 14 degrees this morning with a cold breeze. They say back up to the 50’s tomorrow, I guess we’ll wait and see. My Dad is still in the Hospital, he’s really weak. They’ll be moving him to rehab sometime today though. They told us he’ll be there for a at least a weak, to build his strength back up. Hope to see him home soon! Mom had dinner with Dad tonight so it was dinner for one tonight. I prepared a Blackened Mahi Mahi and Mango Salsa w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice and Sliced Carrots.

 

 

 
I had bought a huge Mahi Mahi Fillet at Kroger a while back and had cut it into 4 smaller fillets and froze them. I laid one of the fillets out in the fridge to thaw overnight. To prepare it I melted a tablespoon of butter, Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter. I then brushed both sides of the fillet with the Butter and then rubbed the fillet with Zatarain’s Blackened Seasoning. Then I got out my favorite skillet, The Cast Iron Skillet. When the pan was fully heated, on medium heat, I added my Mahi Mahi Fillet. Cooked it about 4 minutes per side, and it was ready for the table! It’s just so good, hard to describe! Moist and bursting with flavor. The Zatarain’s Seasonings are perfect for any Fish.

 

 

 
Mahi Mahi always seems to go good with fruits like Mano and Pineapple so I also prepared a Mango salsa to top it with. To prepare it I heated 2 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a skillet over medium heat. Then stirred in 1 1/2 tablespoons of Splenda Brown Sugar; and cooked it until the Sugar dissolves, about 1 minute or so. I then added a bag of Dole Chef Cuts Mango and Pineapple, Cilantro, and Red Wine. Simmered that until hot, about 3-5 minutes. transferred to a bowl when done. A perfect Salsa to go with Mahi Mahi.

 

 

 
Then for 1 side dish I prepared a bag of Uncle Ben’s Long Grain and Wild Ready Rice, just microwave and serve. Then I heated up a small can of Sliced carrots along with a slice of Klosterman Wheat Bread. Then for dessert later a bowl of Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunks.
