Looking for a fast, healthy and tasty weeknight meal? This is it, and don’t be put off by the unfamiliar spice concoction. Charmoula-rubbed Mahi-Mahi  is easy peasy, especially when paired with Shallot Bulgur. You must be thinking that I am on a spice-rub kick. ‘Tis true. This recipe, likes others from the so-called cleanse, took me out of my cooking comfort zone, requiring the use of unusual spices and various healthy, whole grains…like bulgur! How exciting – I had not prepared bulgur before, so it was great to discover another high-fiber whole grain, easy to prepare and even Hubs-approved. Sara Dickerman pairs the Mahi Mahi with a sliced orange salad. Visually, it is a treat (see below), but really not worth the effort. It makes the whole meal more complicated to prepare, and I suggest skipping it in lieu of a sliced orange for garnish.

Charmoula-Rubbed Mahi-Mahi

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro, or parsley (I used parsley since I had it on hand)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika, sweet or smoked
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 small garlic clove, grated
  • 4 6-oz. mahi-mahi fillets

Instructions

  • Stir together cilantro or parsley, oil, cumin, paprika, salt, lime juice, garlic, and 1 Tbsp. water (alternatively, pulse ingredients in a food processor for a smoother texture and a slightly more intense herbal flavor). Rub mixture onto the mahi-mahi fillets and chill for at least 15 minutes and up to 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 425°. Place marinated fish on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast until fish is just opaque in center, 10–15 minutes.

  1. Hi Deb, Haven”t weighed in lately. Your spice adventurers are very intriguing and I’m scheduling this one for early next week. Kay and I are gradually baking and spicing more for flavor and healthy cooking. I hate to take recipes from the web or a cookbook without a respected recommendation. So far you have been 100%. I’m still concocting honey bee products and will share some health outcomes as they present themselves. The one absolute recommendation is the honey bee propolis. We first used it as a liquid bandage for cuts and sores. Really works well. It is now creeping into tonics and skin creams…will keep you posted.
