Thanksgiving Leftovers?

Not quite.

No, tonight we have Baked Mahi Mahi with

Omaha Steak's Potatoes au Gratin

So this dinner is Semi-Ho'd.

Get over it.

There are many ways to do it wrong

and a few ways to do it right.

The centerpiece of the meal was the baked mahi mahi.

The recipe I found called for

2 Mahi mahi filets

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup minced onion

1/4 cup minced shrimp*



2 tablespoons breadcrumbs

*Oops, I changed the recipe already.

The shrimp and onion have been minced.

The mahi mahi were salted and peppered.

Then the mixture of mayo, shrimp and onion

was spread on top.

Finally, the bread crumbs were sprinkled on top.

These baked as suggested for 25 minutes.

Unfortunately, the recipe didn't give times for

frozen mahi mahi.

It seems that some of us don't have access to fresh seafood.

Why not give times for frozen fish?

So we had to microwave the fish for about a minute to finish

cooking it.

I would also suggest adding butter to the bread crumbs

so that the topping browns.

Still, this was pretty good

and I would suggest that you try these

nice products from Omaha Steaks and Schwan's.
As a bonus,
even the ever-picky husband liked this.

Frozen mahi mahi? What an interesting concept.

That's life in the Midwest, Rosie. All we can get is frozen fish and shellfish.

But at least we get this now. I remember as a kid when all that was available were those frozen breaded square fish and pre-cooked rubbery shrimp. It's no wonder I didn't like seafood as a child.

It was years before I learned flounder wasn't shaped like a rectangle.
