Chilli Lime MahiMahi with Blackened Broccoli

Although this recipe was tested with mahi-mahi, the chilli lime sauce would pair well with other types of white fish including halibut and snapper.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Serves: 2

Ingredients:

3 c. broccoli florets, fresh or frozen
2 T. water
3 T. fresh lime juice
½ c. fresh cilantro, chopped
1/3 c. extra virgin olive oil
1 T. honey, preferably local
½ t. crushed red pepper flakes*
1 t. chilli powder
½ t. ground cumin
½ t. garlic powder
½ t. salt
¼ t. ground black pepper
2 6 oz. mahi mahi fillets

*Use ¼ t. crushed red pepper flakes for less spicy results

Directions:

Place the broccoli florets in a microwave safe bowl along with 2 tablespoons water. Cover and microwave on high for 2-3 minutes, or just until crisp tender. (Cook time will vary by unit, so check after 2 minutes and adjust cook time accordingly. Do not overcook). Remove from microwave and transfer broccoli to a strainer to drain. Set aside.

While the broccoli is in the microwave, whisk together the lime juice, cilantro, one-quarter cup olive oil, honey, red pepper flakes, chilli powder, ground cumin, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper in a medium bowl until well combined. Set aside.

Heat the remaining olive oil in a large, nonstick skillet over medium heat. Pat the mahimahi fillets dry with a paper towel and add to the hot skillet. Brush the tops and sides generously with the chilli lime sauce while it cooks. After 4-5 minutes, carefully flip the fillets and brush the exposed surfaces with additional  sauce. 

Cook for another 3-4 minutes, or just until the fillets are cooked through. Remove from heat and transfer the mahimahi to a plate. Set aside.

Toss the steamed broccoli with the remaining chilli lime sauce and transfer to the skillet. Increase heat to medium-high and cook, stirring frequently, until the broccoli is nicely browned and caramelised, approximately 3-4 minutes.

Return the mahimahi and its juices to the skillet. Remove from heat and serve immediately with the blackened broccoli. Enjoy!
