Easy Broiled Mahi Mahi and Spinach with Pine Nuts

Lauren and I are big fans of Harris Teeter in these parts. We just got a new one where 751 and 54 cross. A weekly weekend shopping trip has become a time when we can go up and down each aisle, joking and picking up things that we have printed out on our list (Lauren is way more prepared and organized in regards to shopping.) You see, with working all week she likes to plan out 2, usually three meals that are homemade, so we can eat those and the leftovers. By the way, I am a Leftover King (a little hint about an upcoming post).

We had Haddock on our list to make the Easy Broiled Haddock. Unfortunately, the fish wasn't fresh, or was all bought out, so we swapped out fish on sale and picked up a couple of frozen Mahi Mahi fillets. Excellent choice indeed. The recipe, (starts below asterisks) is taken off of About.com Southern Food section, and Lauren paired it with an excellent Spinach and Pine Nuts dish, which we have had before, and when I get good enough pictures and a recipe will blog about. Until then, pick up a fish, and follow the below directions for some Easy Broiled Blank (Mahi Mahi).

Haddock fillets [or any fish] are broiled and basted with a soy sauce lemon juice mixture.

Cook Time: 20 minutes


  • 1 pound haddock fillets [or any fish]
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley


Cut fillets into serving pieces; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Combine the soy sauce and vegetable oil.

Arrange the fish pieces on an oiled broiler rack; broil until golden brown, basting frequently with the soy sauce mixture. Turn and broil for about 5 minutes longer, basting. Place fish on a warm platter.

In a saucepan, combine remaining oil and soy sauce with drippings; heat. Add lemon juice and parsley. Pour over fish.
Broiled haddock serves 4. [or two and 1 Food Monster]
