I have had a few requests for a fish recipe so last night I threw this dinner together with what had in the house: some beautiful carrots from the GRUB farm, green onions, fresh ginger, and wild caught Mahi Mahi pieces from Trader Joe’s. I wish now that I had made more of everything, it turned out to be more of a snack for me and the boys instead of an actual dinner but it was delicious!! I’ll advise you now to double this recipe if you have a big family.
Oh, and my kids like fish but they LOVED this meal and I would bet that if you are serving fish to your kiddos for the first time; this dish could be the one to get them excited about eating seafood (remember to let them help you cook to get them really excited about trying it!)
Gingered Carrots with Mahi Mahi
4 carrots, sliced
3 tablespoons grass fed butter or coconut oil
5 green onions, diced
½ teaspoon fresh grated ginger
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
1 pound of mahi mahi pieces or other white fish of your choice
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
½ cup chicken broth
1 tablespoon coconut aminos or 1/2 teaspoon of wheat free tamari
Fresh ground black pepper and sea salt to taste
Saute the carrots in 2 tablespoons of the butter or coconut oil over medium heat for 5-7 minutes or until the carrots start to brown. While the carrots are cooking, mix the chicken broth, coconut aminos or tamari and black pepper together in a bowl and set aside. Add the green onions to the carrots and cook for another minute. Add the lemon juice, ginger, and garlic to the pan and sauté just until the veggies are coated with the ginger and garlic. Sprinkle with a little sea salt, stir again, and remove the carrot mixture from the pan and set aside. Add the remaining tablespoon of butter or coconut oil to the same pan and melt over medium heat. Add the fish pieces and cook for 1 minute on each side, making sure that your pan is nice and hot so that the fish sear and turn golden brown on each side. Now, pour the chicken broth mixture that you made earlier over the fish, cover and cook for another 1 – 2 minutes or until the fish is tender and flakes apart easily. Do not overcook!! Serve the fish over the gingered carrots and be ready to fall in love…. Serves 2-3 adults. I recommend doubling this recipe!!
