Grilled Mahi-Mahi and Garlic Rice

07 Jul

I bought a bag of Mahi-Mahi chunks from Costco. It’s a fish with firm flesh, the type preferred by my fish-averse husband! It’s convenient to have a bag of frozen fish in the freezer for the days when you don’t want to spend a lot of time preparing dinner. I have pan fried the mahi-mahi before but now that it’s summer I chose to grill it yesterday. Then feeling that serving it with plain white rice is well, plain, I made garlic rice with the cooked rice. Really quick and simple too. Boiled some greens and I have a balanced meal. Smile

Grilled Mahi-Mahi

1 tablespoon lemon zest
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried parsley
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon cracked pepper
3 – 4 pieces mahi-mahi chunks

Place the fish in a baking tray. Mix the other ingredients in a bowl and pour over the fish to marinade for an hour. Turn the fish over halfway.
Heat the grill and rub some oil on the grill. Grill the fish over direct medium heat for 3-4 minutes each side. Serve.

Garlic Fried Rice
(adapted from Harumi’s Japanese Cooking)

2 cups cooked rice
1 – 2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons sunflower or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon granulated chicken stock
Soy sauce
1 teaspoon dried basil

Heat the oil in a wok and fry the garlic until you can smell it. Then add the rice and the stock granules. Drizzle soy sauce around the rice on the inside surface of the pan. Add in the basil and mix. Turn off the heat and stir until the rice is evenly mixed.

    Looks good and simple. The rice must be delicious with the stock and seared soy sauce.

    That looks great, Ker-Yng! My kids are not too fond of garlic though….hmmm…have to look for a replacement rice dish.

      Thanks, Joyce. I’m sure you can leave out the garlic and the rice will still be great with the stock granules and soy sauce.
