bahamian mahi mahi

2 pounds mahi mahi fillets
1/2 cup dark rum
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
2 onion, sliced into thin rings
1 lemon, sliced
2 teaspoons dried oregano
4 tablespoons butter
ground black pepper to taste

Arrange the fish fillets in an oven proof 9x13 glass baking dish. Pour the rum and lime juice over the fish and place a slice onion on each fillet. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
Remove fish from the refrigerator and pour off about 3/4 of the liquid. Leave the onion slices in the dish and place a thick slice of lemon on each fish fillet. Sprinkle with oregano and black pepper to taste. Place a pat of butter or margarine on each fillet.
Bake, covered, at 350 degrees F (165 degrees C) for about 20 to 30 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Be careful not to over cook the fish or it will be dry. Serve with the cooked onion and lemon slices.

macadamia nut crusted mahi mahi

2 ounces macadamia nuts
4 ounces plain bread crumbs
6 (6 ounce) mahi mahi fillets
4 ounces butter
2 ounces shallots, diced
4 cups chicken stock
4 ounces pineapple, rough chopped
4 ounces papaya, rough chopped
4 ounces mango, rough chopped
1 tablespoon shredded coconut
2 habanero peppers, seeded
salt and pepper to taste
white sugar to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
In a food processor or blender, pulse together macadamia nuts and breadcrumbs until finely ground. Pour nut mixture onto a plate, and coat fish fillets on both sides.
Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry fillets on both sides until nuts are golden brown. Remove to a baking pan.
Add shallots to skillet, and cook until translucent. Stir in chicken stock. Mix in pineapple, papaya, mango, coconut, and habanero peppers. Season with salt, pepper, and sugar to taste. Simmer until sauce is thick, about 30 minutes. Strain to remove peppers, fruit, and shallots. Reserve sauce in a pan over low heat.
Bake mahi mahi in preheated oven about 10 minutes, until internal temperature reaches 140 degrees F. Remove fish, and lightly coat with sauce.

sesame crusted mahi mahi with soy shiso ginger butter sauce

3 shallots, minced
2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger root
1 lemon, juiced
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small cubes
3 tablespoons soy sauce
4 shiso leaves
coarse kosher salt
ground white pepper
2 tablespoons canola oil
6 (6 ounce) mahi mahi fillets
4 tablespoons sesame seeds
4 tablespoons black sesame seeds

In a sauce pan over medium heat, combine shallots, ginger, lemon juice, and white wine. Cook until liquid is reduced to approximately 2 tablespoons. Stir in heavy cream, and bring to light boil. Reduce cream by half; do not burn. Stir in soy sauce, then transfer to blender. Blend on low while slowly adding butter, a few cubes at a time, until all of the butter is emulsified. Roughly chop or tear shiso, add to sauce, and blend for about 10 more seconds. Season to taste with kosher salt and pepper. Keep sauce warm.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
Heat oil in a large saute pan over high heat. Season both sides of the fillets with kosher salt and white pepper. Mix together white and black sesame seeds, and place in a plate or flat dish. Press the TOP side only of each fillet into the mixture, and press seeds into fish so it sticks. Make sure that the crusted sides are evenly crusted with the seeds. When oil is smoking, add fish, sesame seed side down to pan, and be careful of oil splatters. Pan sear fish for about 30 to 45 seconds per side. Place pan into oven, or transfer fish to baking sheet, and cook in oven for about 5 to 6 minutes. Serve sesame crust side up with ginger butter sauce.

Do you ever use flour tortillas for tacos?
My friend showed me how to cook them in an 1/8" of hot oil for a half a minute to make em almost crispy. Awesome.
Then you just use em like a regular taco shell.

Anybody else do it this way.

I used to just use Corn tortillas for tostadas and taco shells.
My fav Mexican fast food joint uses flour for their tostada grandes.
A friend showed me that Cummin was what made Mexican food taste so unique. Thanks Tiffany D.
