I checked the fridge and had tortillas, a red onion, BBQ sauce and goat cheese – sounds like dinner to me! The original recipe made their own BBQ sauce but I have about 5 bottles given to me from random events so I need to use some of it up. The one I chose tonight was from my trip to Branson, MO!
First you cut up the Mahi Mahi into chunks. This is a very thick fish – and it holds up really well – no flaking here – similar to fresh tuna. I cracked a little salt & pepper on the fish first to season it.
Then I started the red onion slices in the saute pan. I got these nice and soft and carmelized. It takes the bite out of it but still leaves the onion flavor. Once ready I removed the onion from the pan and set them aside.
Then I tossed the mahi mahi in the BBQ sauce and put that in the saute pan. It cooks up quickly when it’s in bite-sized pieces like this.
Here’s my sauteed onion and crumbled goat cheese – just waiting for their home in my belly!
