Need an easy & healthy fish recipe? Try this pan-seared mahi-mahi (a neutral-tasting white fish) topped with fresh pineapple salsa. Serve it with your favorite sides for a quick weeknight meal in less than 30 minutes.
One of my go-to mid-week meals is fish fillets pan-seared in a cast-iron skillet. (I shared it recently here and here on Instagram.) I like to stock up on 2-packs of frozen wild-caught fish (usually at Trader Joe's) so I can grab one out of my freezer when I need a quick meal. Fish fillets can be cooked in as little as 10-15 minutes (depending on their thickness) and if you forget to thaw them overnight in the fridge, you can simply run the bag under cold water in your sink for several minutes.
If you've never had mahi-mahi before, you're in for a treat! It's a neutral-tasting buttery white fish, which makes it perfect for picky eaters. I like to think of it as a poor man's halibut because it's 1/4 of the price, but similar in taste. As much as I wish I could eat wild-caught halibut every week (maybe if I lived in the Pacific Northwest or Alaska), my pocketbook appreciates mahi-mahi much more.
