MAHI-MAHI & GREEK SALAD
I could eat this every night.
Years ago, during the height of my stomach issues, I was turned onto fish and salad. While I didn't realize at the time WHY, I can say with absolute certainty that a meal like this would guarantee that I would not end up in the bathroom. Years later I now know it is because there was no gluten.
FOR THE SALAD - INGREDIENTS:
Mixed organic greens - 2 handfuls per person
boiling potatoes, sliced, 1 - 2 small potatoes per person
tomatoes - as many as you like
red onion, sliced
Kalamata Olives, pitted and sliced
roughly 1/3 cup Red Wine Vinegar
roughly 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tsp. Oregano
1 tsp. Crushed Garlic
Salt and Pepper to taste
1/4 tsp. Crushed Red Chili Flakes
Feta Cheese - A little dab should do you. No need to go overboard here.
Wash and slice potatoes, boil in salted water until the potatoes are fork tender, drain, and then shock. Shocking means to put in ice water. It's important to cool the potatoes down before adding to your salad.
While potatoes are cooking, assemble the other ingredients for the salad. Wash your greens, add in the tomato, onion, cucumbers, olives. When potatoes are cool, drain, and add those in as well.
For the dressing, combine the vinegar, oil, salt, pepper, oregano, crushed red chili flakes and garlic. This should have a heavier vinegar taste than olive oil. The general ratio is 3 parts olive oil to 4 parts vinegar.
Just prior to serving, pour on the dressing. At one time, I liked this with extra dressing as it was great to sop up with some hard crusty bread. I don't DO hard crusty bread anymore - but with that said, it's still a good salad for extra dressing.
Once assembled, and dressed, place in your serving dish and toss in a little Feta cheese.
FOR THE MAHI-MAHI:
Salt and Pepper
Gluten free flour for dredging fish - I prefer Better Batter All-Purpose Flour Blend
Season fish with salt and pepper.
Place a little flour on a plate and lightly dredge fish. Shake off any excess.
In a saute pan over medium high heat, with a little olive oil, cook fish. It will depend on the thickness of the fish as to how long you need to cook it. The fish for tonight was about an inch thick - and I cooked it about 3.5 minutes per side. I only turned it once.
