A great weeknight dinner for when you have no time to cook. This is a true 30 minute meal. I use Trader Joe’s frozen Mahi-Mahi. You can skip the leeks if you don’t have any handy and you can also swap in onions. Increase the amounts for more people or big appetites.
Ingredients for 3 people
3 thawed fillets (about 1 lb) Mahi-Mahi (note that if you plunge the plastic pouch in hot water in the sink right away the fish will thaw by the time the oven is hot and the veggies are chopped)
3/4 cup cherry or grape tomatoes cut in half
3/4 cup chopped and rinsed leeks
2 TB lemon juice
2 TB Spectrum Naturals Butter Flavor Shortening (palm oil based)
Salt (truly optional)
Non-reactive (glass or ceramic, stainless will do in a pinch) baking dish just big enough to hold the fish in a single layer.
Microwave safe cup for melting shortening
Measuring cups and spoons
Knife and cutting board
If you have not already done so thaw the fish by putting it in its plastic in the sink with hot water
Preheat oven to 450 F
Cut tomatoes in half
Cut leeks and then separate and rinse to remove all sand and dirt.
Microwave shortening until melted
Mix shortening with lemon juice and salt (if using)
Cut fish out of pouches and put in the baking dish.
Cover fish with tomatoes and leeks
Pour lemon mixture over fish and veggies
Bake at 450 for 15 minutes (check for doneness then, total cooking time will depend on how thick you fillets are)
Serve with a side salad, microwaved frozen broccoli, or asparagus.
