We have had a couple of submissions to Photo-Worthy Food that have featured Pan-Seared Mahi-Mahi.  So, I thought it was only appropriate that we put out a recipe for our followers.  I developed this recipe as a tribute to what was served to me while visiting the “Street Party” in St. Lucia.  It’s my best guess as to how the fish was prepared on this beautiful island.  The recipe is actually quite simple.  You can have this dish whipped up in no time at all.  The biggest obstacle in creating this meal is to obtain a piece of high-quality fish.  I served this Mahi-Mahi with a sun-dried tomato risotto.  You could also serve with rice and black beans like they did in the Caribbean.
