Herb and Walnut Crusted Mahi Mahi

April 29, 2011 | Fish & Seafood

One of the best things about spring is the plethora of herbs growing right outside my kitchen door. And this is one of those examples where you can just have a plain boring piece of fish, or something special with about 2 minutes of extra work.Start with some parsley, thyme, walnuts and breadcrumbs……and pulse in the food processor until you have a nice herbed breadcrumb and walnut mixture.Add just enough extra virgin olive oil to make a paste……then press it onto the top of the fish, season each piece with salt and pepper, and bake. It’s that easy, but it happens to bring spring to the piece of mahi mahi. “And that’s a good thing.”
