Broiled Mahi Mahi

We decided tonight to go with a broiled technique for our mahi mahi.  A simple technique for fixing fish. It could  be seasoned anyway desired.  I’d gotten a new seasoning blend for christmas that is called Peri Peri seasoning; a spicy blend with cayenne, fenugreek, cardamom, cumin, and allspice …. just to name a few of the ingredients.  Sounded like a strange combination but it all worked very well together and was nicely spicy.

  • 1 pound mahi mahi fillets (3-4 pieces)
  • olive oil
  • seasoning

Oil baking sheet well.  Place fish on baking sheet and season both sides with desired seasoning; even just a little salt and pepper is great.  Broil about 3 inches from heat for 5 minutes.  Flip over and broil an additional 4-6 minutes until cooked through.

Lemon Pepper Seasoning

I am finishing up on some Christmas gifts and made a few seasonings today.  One of which is a lemon pepper seasoning.  This will be great on fish or chicken; actually I can’t really think of anything it wouldn’t be good on even vegetables would be delicious with this combination.DSCN3422 (480x640)

  • 1 Tbs lemon zest ~ dehydrate if making ahead
  • 1 Tbs black peppercorns
  • 1 Tbs french thyme
  • 2 Tbs kosher salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp paprika

In spice grinder combine lemon zest, peppercorns, and thyme until desired size.  Combine with remaining ingredients and use as seasoning for your favorite foods.

Fried Pork Chops

Charles fixed some great fried pork chops for dinner tonight.  I think the key to great fried pork or fried chicken for that matter is a flavorful flour.  He spiced it up a bit and got a great combination to keep them flavorful.

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 Tbs salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp paprika ~ we are a fan of the hungarian style which is a bit spicier than spanish
  • 1 1/2 tsp cayenne
  • 1 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp marjoram
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
  • and of course Pork Chops or Chicken ~ something to fry!

Toss together all ingredients (except of course the meat) in bowl or plastic bag; dip pork chops into flour mixture and toss until coated.  Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat; add chops and cook until desired doneness.  He used about 1/2 inch of oil in the pan for chops that were 3/4 inch thick.  Cook for 5 – 8 minutes each side or until cooked through.
