Roasted Mahi Mahi with Olives, Capers and Lemon


1 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil, plus more as needed

2 mahi mahi fillets, about 6-7 oz./185-220 g. each

Coarse kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

1/3 cup (2 oz./60 g.) pitted kalamata olives, chopped

1 shallot, minced

1 1/2 Tbs. capers

1 1/2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice

1 tsp. grated lemon zest


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Brush a small glass baking dish with olive oil. Sprinkle the fish fillets on both sides with salt and pepper, place in the dish and brush with oil on both sides.


In a small bowl, combine the olives, shallot, capers, lemon juice and zest and the 1 tablespoon oil; spoon the mixture over the fish. Roast the fish until just cooked through, about 12 minutes.


Divide the fish and topping between warmed plates, spooning any drippings over the top. Serve right away. Serves 2.
