Mexican Styled Mahi-Mahi

August 18, 2009 at 2:39 pm | Posted in Dinner | 2 Comments

Shortly after Cookbook Club, Ned and I were discussing what to make for our Sunday dinner. Usually we tend to gravitate to fish for Sunday to “cleanse out” all the crap we ate and beer we drank all weekend.  So off to Wegman’s and the mahi mahi looked fresh! I had lots of leftover mole sauce and had picked up some fresh corn from the JFX market. So wam bam thank you mam, we had a dinner idea!

So here is our Mexican Styled Mahi Mahi! Quite a breathtaking presentation if I do say so myself, but of course it is thanks to my mad scientist Edward! I have never made a corn puree before and it was deeeelicious, and with the intensely fantastically flavored mole- wowsa. We be eating well. 😛

And for about the past month or so we have been eating variations of these salads every weeknight!  On the left is a caprese rendition using heirlooms from Reid’s stand and some mozz with evoo and balsamic. On the right is some cherry tomatoes, roasted with dried thyme and s&p and evoo at 350 and then fresh spinach with our standard dressing (see below)!

I love heirlooms and cherry tomatoes SO MUCH,  I never actually realized until this summer season! The heirlooms have such a dramatic savory and delicious flavor and the cherry’s are little balls of sunshine. I am a huge snacker (cookies, ice cream, oh baby…) and have started to come to appreciate that these little nuggets can work just fine too.

Ned and I really enjoy small plate dinners where we get small bites of random delicious sides, like garlic tuscan bread and mammoth green olives from W’s too!

Deeelicious elegant dressing: 1 count red wine vinegar, 3 counts olive oil, 1/2 ct truffle oil, 1 ct honey, s&p! Adjust vinegar and honey until it tastes to your liking. We keep a small batch in a container in the fridge and it is just perfect to use on weeknights!
