Since my husband occasionally goes offshore fishing, he can bring me back some mahi mahi for me to enjoy! There’s nothing like eating fresh fish, and by fresh meaning is was swimming just hours before I can eat it. I normally prepare it in a pretty simple way, but this time I wanted to try something a little different. I love battered popcorn shrimp so I wanted to take that same concept and apply it to mahi mahi. The breading is just something I created and it’s very versatile for you to add whatever you want to make it unique to your tastes. I served this with a little lemon sauce for dipping.
– 1 mahi mahi filet, cut into nuggets
-2 tablespoons oil for frying
-1 tablespoon white wine
– Egg wash for dredging
-3/4 cup flour
– 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
– 1/4 teaspoon salt
-1/4 teaspoon pepper
1. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat.
2. Season the flour with the garlic, salt and pepper and about a teaspoon of lemon zest. Dredge nuggets in the flour, then the egg wash, then back in the seasoned flour. Place evenly in frying pan and cook 3-4 minutes, flip, and add the white wine and 1-2 teaspoons of lemon juice. Cook an additional 3-4 minutes.
