Dinner is Served!
--Blackened Mahi Mahi
--Steamed green beans
--Baked sweet potato fries
The Mahi Mahi recipe came from here. The sweet potato spears came from Trader Joes, already cut and skinned and ready to cook.
The verdict? I like it. A few things, though:
Next time I will use WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY less Cayenne. Not sure what I was thinking about. Oh wait. I was watching Y & R. 'Nuff said. Also, as you can see by the recipe, they don't mention how much they used of each seasoning. So I just mixed an equal part of each but I did use less Cayenne than the rest of the seasonings. Clearly not a small enough amount for my delicate sensitivities (read: I don't really eat spicy food).
I will also use less cumin. Why didn't somebody tell me about that stuff? Good GRIEF! It tastes good but definitely don't need as much.
Other than that, I think I did a good job for my first time. The 2nd filet is a bit, uh, charbroiled. Like, if you remember at the end of The Five Heartbeats when Choir Boy was making the ribs? Yeah. Got a little sidetracked (darn you, Victor Newman and Katherine Chancellor!).
I have another mahi mahi steak in the fridge and I will try this again on Thursday. Tomorrow is Cardio Funkytown and I won't have time to do all of this before I go.
All in all, two thumbs up!
