Wild Mahi Mahi With Quinoa is a great family meal!  It is healthy, delicious and so easy to prepare.  All you need: fresh ingredients and about 30 minutes! I feel good after eating such a healthy and balanced meal.  I am also glad my family enjoys it as much as I do!

We choose to buy wild fish because it is a healthier choice and brings a lot more health benefits! Mahi Mahi is a low fat fish full of nutrients.  It is also very low in mercury. It contains beneficial minerals, vitamins and protein needed for optional health. It has a mild, semi sweet flavor that makes it a great option for children too.

My three year old son loves fish and quinoa but asparagus and saute spinach not so much.  I offer it to him when I cook it and I am keeping positive that eventually he will like it.  Remember sometimes it takes 15-20 tries for a child to accept a new flavor.

Recipe type: Dinner
Serves: 3
Ingredients
  • 3 wild Mahi Mahi fillets
  • 1 cup Organic Quinoa
  • 2 cups Organic Vegetable Broth
  • salt (I like to cook with Celtic Sea Salt because it is a healthier choice of salt), pepper, Organic Paprika (according to taste)
  • A little All-Purpose Flour
  • Olive Oil
Instructions
  1. To cook quinoa: bring vegetable broth to a boil (you can also use chicken broth) add the quinoa, reduce to medium heat and cook for about 10-15 minutes until liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat and cover. Let it stand for a few minutes and serve.
  2. For the Mahi Mahi: I decided to cook the fish a large pan instead of baking this time. All the fish needs is a little bit of olive oil. Season the fillets to your own personal taste and cook in medium-high heat for a few minutes each side. If you like a little heat add a pinch of cayenne. This time to season my fish I used a bit of flour, salt, paprika and pepper and I placed it in a shallow dish. I then dredged the fillets in the mixture and cooked in the large pan 3-4 minutes each side. The fish was delicious!
  3. If you decide to bake it, just place the fish on top of parchment paper, season to taste and bake at 375 for about 10-15 minutes (depending on how thick the fillets are).
  4. You can serve it with a side vegetable dish too. Adding vegetables to your meals will increase the nutritional value and create healthy eating habits!
  5. I made sauteed asparagus and spinach with a little olive oil and salt. Spinach needs only a couple of minutes on medium heat. Asparagus will take a bit longer about 5-8 minutes to cook.
