So, as I posted in FCD's thread, yesterday I was at Kroger and they had entire half slabs of mahi-mahi for $3.99/lb. I was blown away, because it's
never so cheap. I liken it to the increased supply due to restaurants being closed for so long, but I had to buy a slab (and may go back for more).
Here's what I bought for $11:
Knowing I would never eat all of this before it spoils, I decided to cut it up and freeze most of it, but I set aside a few pieces for dinner tonight.
Seasoned in a Cajun/blackened blend of spices, and sitting for an hour or so, I heated the skillet with butter and a little olive oil until hot, and
it only took about 2-3 minutes a side before they were cooked. Since I had no lemon on hand, I used the lime I had, and, drizzling them in lime juice,
let them sit a few a minutes before adding some horseradish sauce.
This went very well with the shrimp creole I threw together. A quick and easy roux with butter and flour until a medium brown, then aded onion and
bell pepper (there was no celery on hand). Throw in some garlic, saute, and add the tomatoes, chili powder, and spices to taste. Season and simmer.
And at the end add the shrimp.
Add some fresh green (English) peas as a side dish....
And this was a fine meal.
