Pecan Crusted Mahi with Roasted Red Pepper Coulis

Pecan Crusted Mahi with Roasted Red Pepper Coulis

This dish looks elegant, but it’s simple… and believe me, it’s super easy to prepare. I love the crunchy pecan crust, and I love that it’s achieved in the oven. Plus, I lined the baking pan with tin foil, so there was no messy pan to clean up afterwards.

You can serve the fish however you’d like, but atop the Roasted Red Pepper Coulis was fabulous. Topped with some micro greens for perfection! It’s one of my favorites.  😉

Pecan Crusted Mahi

1 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 portions of Mahi Mahi
pinch of Salt Pecan Crusted Mahi ready for the oven
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup Pecans, crushed

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line your baking dish with tin foil, sprayed with a little olive oil.
Rinse and pat dry the 2 pieces of Mahi.
Lightly salt and set aside.
Break egg into a low shallow dish.
Add about a tablespoon of water and beat until blended.
Set aside.
Place the pecans in a low shallow dish.
Dip fish pieces into the egg to coat, and then into the pecans to cover completely.
Place on prepared baking dish and bake for 20 minutes.
If desired, turn the broiler on for a minute or two to brown the crust further…but be sure to keep an eye on it!
Serve Mahi atop Roasted Red Pepper Coulis (recipe below).

Remove the skins, they should come off easily.
