Baked Cajun Mahi Mahi Dinner
This Baked Cajun Mahi-Mahi Dinner is a healthy way to get dinner on the table and fast. Best of all it only uses one dish so cleanup is a breeze!
It’s a new year which means we all are trying to eat a little healthier. By now we are closing in on the end of the month and maybe you’ve fallen off the band wagon it a little bit. I’m here to help give you a new healthier recipe that will hopefully jump start you back into eating healthier. Fish is always a go-to when I’m trying to eat healthy. Mahi mahi season is over here in Florida; however, my freezer still has quite a few filets left from a successful fishing season. We enjoy mahi every other week for dinner. I almost always prepare it with cajun seasoning and serve with rice, quinoa, or my favorite, couscous. I like to make fish either on a Friday or Saturday night. It’s a simple meal to make and since we never have leftovers it’s perfect for the weekend. We love to eat leftovers for lunch throughout the week, and let’s face it–who likes to eat fish the next day? You also don’t want to be known as the “stinky fish person” at work. That was always one of my biggest pet peeves when I worked in the corporate world. It should be against the law to reheat any form of seafood in the microwave. I digress…
If your looking for a new way to cook mahi mahi (or any steak like white fish) then I think you’ll love this cajun style. The trinity mix of red, yellow, and green bell peppers as well as onions and fresh tomatoes is what makes this meal complete. The andouille sausage brings a little heat to the topping. If your on a low carb diet you could easily make this without any starchy sides and just roast additional veggies. My kids even love fish. I pretty much only ever cook fish with my cajun seasoning blend, and they don’t mind it one bit!
Pro tip: dice the tomatoes, bell peppers, onions, and andouille sausage the night before and store in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Once your ready to make the meal just pull out the chopped veggies and you’ve just save a good 15 minutes of dinner prep time. I also don’t worry about thawing the fish. I bake it from frozen and it’s completely fine to do just that.
