Easy Baked Mahi Mahi {Easy Enough For A Rough Commute

This easy baked Mahi Mahi recipe can be a weeknight lifesaver!

Commuting into the city every day can be like an obstacle course at times. The spring and early summer have been one of the wettest I can remember. Although Mother Nature’s spigot has been turned off this past week, that was definitely not the case a few weeks ago.

Easy baked Mahi Mahi is oven baked enclosed in a packet that locks in moisture and flavor cooked with potatoes, onions, lemon, slices, and bacon. It’s simple and easy unlike our commute into the city sometimes…

driving home in the pouring rain

Afternoon thunderstorms can make the commute home rather difficult. There is nothing scarier than a downburst of rain and losing site of the road in front of you. On this particular day, I was trying to get home to prepare some Mahi Mahi fillets for the oven. Fortunately, the rains let up and it did not take us too long to get home, but even if it had taken us longer to get home than expected, this easy baked Mahi Mahi recipe is a perfect weeknight meal all bundled up into a little package.

How To Make Easy Baked Mahi Mahi:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Rinse and pat dry the two Mahi Mahi fillets. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, to taste.

Wrap each fillet in 2 to 3 slices of bacon. Drop a couple of pieces of butter onto a sheet of foil large enough to completely enclose the fillet, then lay the fish on top.

Place sliced potatoes and onion rings on top of the bacon wrapped fillets.

Top the potatoes and onions with a few slices of lemon and then drizzle with a little Worcestershire sauce and pats of butter. Season with a little more salt and pepper. Wrap up the edges of the foil tightly to create a seal and place the packets on a baking sheet.

Bake for about 45 minutes or the potatoes are fork-tender and the fish flakes.

Serve with fresh lemon wedges if desired.

Cooking fish in foil packets in the oven locks in moisture and flavor. The enclosed packet cooks the fish, potatoes, and onions into a soft, moist state. The addition of bacon and Worcestershire sauce intensifies the flavor, spreading it throughout both the fish and the vegetables. You can use most any kind of fish you want. All kinds of fish will cook well in foil packets; other options are salmon or white fish, such as halibut.

When you remove the packet from the oven and carefully open it up, the succulent fish flakes easily and the vegetables are cooked to perfection. The combination of fish and smoky bacon will make any bad commute disappear almost as good as a sea of clouds blanketing the valley…
