Mahi Mahi, Fajita Style

April McIver


I used mahi mahi for this, but you could just as easily substitute any mild white fish, or chicken. A very interesting combination of colors, textures and flavors with a smoky, Mexican undertone.

How to Make Mahi Mahi, Fajita Style


  1. Heat oven to 350. Place fish on a lightly greased pan. Sprinkle with taco seasoning and bake 10-20 minutes, until it flakes easily with a fork.
  2. While fish cooks, heat oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium high. When it’s hot and begins to shimmer add onions and bell pepper. Cook, stirring frequently but allowing scotched patches to form, until crisp-tender. You’re aiming for something like fajitas.
  3. Combine heated rice and black beans. Divide the mixture between two serving plates, spreading it into a circle.
  4. Top rice and beans with bell pepper mixture.
  5. When fish is done, place it on top of the bell peppers.
  6. Top the fish with a line of pineapple salsa, a scoop of yogurt or sour cream, avocado and a drizzle of hot sauce.
