This is a blog for people to discuss what they are eating. There is a theory that by journaling eating habits, people will eat healthier. I am trying to cook more at home and feed my family a wider variety of foods. People can just read or join as co-authors. Topics don't have to be recipes with nice photos. You can write about eating habits, special diets, culinary cultural differences, etc.

Food Diary: Mahi Mahi dinner & Fajitas

This is my baby! I love this thing! Cooking the fish with my favorite cooking toy!
I ought to get commission for this griddle or something.. because I swear I use it a lot! Anyway.. in an effort to eat healthier.. I bought some Mahi Mahi when I went out to my Wegman's trip! It's the first time I'd ever buy fish that was pre-frozen that wasn't shrimp.. so it was a risk. I figured a time on the griddle with just salt pepper should be just fine.. and the verdict?

My plate on the right.. just Grilled Mahi Mahi with frozen veggies (cauliflower, brocoli and carrots in a cheese sauce).

It was GOOD! We should backed down on the salt (we use kosher salt) but other than that it was a great first try! Definately will buy more of that and whatever fish they got since we can just grill it for speed and healthiness!

And because I'm too lazy to make another post..

Typical fajitas diner at our place..

Yes I use a premix.. hang on lemme see which one.. HA! Found it online :) mwahhahaha ehem.. World Harbor - Mexican Style Fajita Sauce and Marinade. I LOVE this stuff. I only use like 1/8th of the bottle each time so it lasts a long time for us. Usually we grill the chicken first (see grill just above.. again.. we beat the crap out of that thing.. (we use boneless, skinless chicken breast) and add it in a pan with onions and peppers (he used green this time.. I don't eat peppers.. but love the taste) and heat it for a few minutes until the flavors combine. Mexican cheese, lettuce.. and or some reason I'm nuts over the Ortega taco sauce.. Can you tell I'm a sauce person? Yes yes.. I digress.. OH and fajita shells (lately we have been using fajita size though these are burrito size (a bit bigger).

Good girl about the mahi-mahi! Always good to try new things. Glad it worked out... Seriously, frozen fish can be tricky. (Actually, along with my fear of deep frying, I can't defrost food well...) Mick tried it a while back and turned out too hard. Mahi mahi is more forgiving than tuna.

We do fajitas a lot too believe it or not. It's a good easy healthy (I think) meal.

I got lucky with the defrosting. I just left it in the fridge and it was okay. The fish are actually individually wrapped in the package (as hubby found out when he opened it up). So I think we will try again with other fish as well. I love having new options and it's really not that expensive. Besides.. I need variety in my life and fish is good for you! I do agree though that most frozen fish can be a disaster.. I had this swordfish once that literally liquefied because it was bad.. omg the smell was horrible..

Theheheh I have no idea if fajitas are a healthy meal but it certainly tastes great! I think that's one of the rare times hubby eats lettuce! He thinks grazing on lettuce belongs to bunnies and cows...

Looks so yummy, Elsie. We do fajitas a lot too. Just cause it's easy and we all three like it. Pork, chicken, beef... whatever... And it's a good way to get Thomas to eat his veggies. I love the peppers. Pete won't eat them tho, but that doesn't prevent me using them. :) Your fish looks very good, too. Have you ever made fish fajitas or fish tacos? So good.
