Marinated Baked Mahi Mahi is a delicious, light and healthy dish. Great for entertaining or a casual weeknight dinner, it's made with tomatoes, lemon and capers.
- ⅓ cup capers, roughly chopped
- ¼ cup shallots, finely chopped
- 1½ tablespoons olive oil
- 1½ teaspoon garlic, minced
- zest of 1 small to medium-sized lemon
- juice of 1 small to medium-sized lemon
- 1½ cups tomatoes, washed and dried, thinly sliced
- 4 (approximately 5-ounce) wild-caught Mahi Mahi fillets
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
In a small bowl, combine the capers, shallots, oil, garlic, lemon zest and lemon juice.
Spread a tablespoon or so of the marinade to the bottom of an (approximately 9 X 9 X 3 -inch) baking dish. Then place about half of the tomato slices in a single layer on top and drizzle a bit more of the marinade over them.
Dredge the fish fillets into the marinade, coating them well and then place them on top of the marinade-drizzled tomato slices. Evenly distribute the remaining marinade over the fish fillets, followed by the remaining tomato slices -- they should completely coat the fish.
Cover with plastic wrap and marinate for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
Preheat the oven to 450°F.
Remove the plastic, season with salt and pepper, and place in the preheated 450°F oven. Bake just until he fish is cooked through, about 15 minutes.
