Three Cheese Mahi Mahi Rockefeller - Really?

Yes, really. Tonight, because T picked up a bargain with some mahi mahi, I researched some recipes and finally made my own:

Three Cheese Mahi Mahi Rockefeller

Start with a 1 1/3 - 1 1/2 lb. strip of mahi mahi - I was unfamiliar with it, it comes as a long, thin side of fish (Dolphin, I hear? Shhh....don't say it out loud). This recipe would be good with salmon or other fish, too.

Saute the mahi mahi in a skillet with 2 T butter.  (I cut it in 3 pieces.) Turn occasionally, brown gently, about 10 minutes. It should begin to flake. Place the fish in a greased baking dish, skin side down.

While the mahi mahi is cooking, melt 2 T butter in a small saucepan. Toss in 2 cups of fresh spinach. Season with garlic salt, pepper, and a dash of cayenne. When spinach cooks down, add 1 cup cheddar cheese and 1/3 cup milk. Blend and stir for 2-3 minutes, until cheese melts. Add 6-8 strips of crispy cooked bacon, crumbled.

Heat the oven broiler.

On each piece of fish in the baking dish, place 1 thin slice of mozzerella cheese. Top with sauce. Sprinkle generously with grated parmesan cheese.

Broil until cheese browns, about 5 minutes or less.


Makes 3 servings. Delicious with asparagus and any delicious potato for a restaurant meal at home.
