March 6, 2009, Newsletter Issue #105: Mahi Mahi Wraps

Tip of the Week

Mahi Mahi makes a great popular dish of late. It is commonly used in seafood tacos and wraps. So, here is a very low fat version of this tasty treat that you can prepare and enjoy.

Quick and Easy Lowfat Mahi Mahi Wrap (serves 2)

2 food wraps, your favorite variety

1 large Mahi Mahi fillet

sesame ginger sauce (or salad dressing)

1 medium tomato

1 avocado, peeled and sliced

shredded carrot, you adjust amount

shredded lettuce, you adjust amount

To prepare this Mahi Mahi recipe:

Take the Mahi Mahi fillet and coat with sesame/ginger sauce. Cover both sides. For a stronger taste, simply refrigerate for about an hour.

Place seasoned fillet onto grill, either outdoor or indoor.

Grill until done. Fillet will be done when flesh will be easily flaked with fork. (Only a couple minutes

per side). Flake the grilled Mahi Mahi and place into a bowl. Set aside.

Warm the food wraps in a large skillet just to get them more pliable. Plus, these Mahi Mahi wraps are better warm than cold.

Prepare the veggies. Place each into a separate bowl (if desired).

To prepare the final version of this Mahi Mahi recipe, simply take a food wrap and place onto your working area opened up. Place a 1-2 line of the grilled, marinated Mahi Mahi into the center. Place tomatoes, avocado slices, shredded carrot, and shredded lettuce on top of Mahi Mahi.

Roll right side of wrap over center portion. Do same for left side, top, and bottom portions of wrap. Either serve warm or wrap in plastic wrap for later consumption.

Note: You can find sesame/ginger sauce in your salad dressing section of the grocery store. Newman's Own makes a great tasting, low fat version.

This is a tasty way to use mahi mahi and a fun way to cook with mahi mahi.
