Mahi Mahi with Tomato Mushroom Sauce

Mahi mahi is also known as the common dolphin fish. No relation to the dolphin in mammal species.

I found fresh mahi mahi fillets in my neighborhood supermarket. It was wild and caught in Hawaiian waters. So you know, I could not pass that fish up.

4 fresh Mahi mahi fillets
1/4 shoyu (soy sauce)
Juice of 1 small lime or lemon
Salt and Pepper to taste

1 fresh tomato seeded and minced finely
2 large mushrooms of your choosing, cleaned and finely minced
2 fresh green onions, finely minced

Marinate the fish fillets with the shoyu, lime juice and a sprinkling of salt and pepper for approximately one hour. Make sure to keep the marinate after removing the fish.

Heat up a cast iron skillet or non-stick. Add two tbsp. olive oil. Place your fillets side to side and fry until golden brown. Turn over and cook for a few minutes more; making sure not to overcook. When the fish flesh turns opaque, it is done.

Remove to a serving plate.

In the hot skillet, add the marinate and your vegetables. Stir with a wooden spoon for approximately 2 or 3 minutes.

Serve fish with a dollop of the sauce along with white rice and boiled sweet potatoes.

Can't get any healthier than that!
