Steamed Mahi Mahi Filet with Coconut Rice

This recipe for Steamed Mahi Mahi Filet with Coconut Rice is from episode 4 of Fish the Dish starring Spencer Watts.

Serves: 4

Ingredients

Coconut Rice:

  • 1 cup (250 ml) Jasmine Rice , rinsed in cold water
  • 1 1/2 cups (12 oz) Coconut milk
  • 1 ½ Tbsp (22.5 ml) Sugar
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) Salt
  • ½ tsp (2.5 ml) Chilli pepper flakes
  • 1 Lime, juice only

Fish:

  • 4 Skinless Mahi Mahi fillets, 4-5 oz each
  • 2 Limes, cut into thin rounds
  • Knob ginger cut into 12 matchsticks
  • 4 Tbsp Butter ( 1 Tbsp for each pouch)
  • 1 cup (250 ml) Frozen shelled edamame beans
  • 4 tsp (20ml) Honey, 1 tsp for each pouch
  • Olive oil for finishing
  • 4 tsp (20 ml) Fresh cilantro leaves, chopped

Directions

  1. Rinse rice in a strainer under cold water until water runs clear. Place in a pot with coconut milk, sugar, salt, chilli flakes, and lime juice. Bring to a boil and reduce heat.  Leave to simmer on low, covered for 15-20 minutes until done.  Set aside to cool. This can be made ahead of time and chilled until preparing fish.
  2. Preheat oven to 400˚F (200˚C).
  3. Cut four pieces of parchment paper to 18×15 inches.
  4. Remove fish from the fridge and pat the fish dry to remove any excess moisture.  Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Lay a piece of parchment flat. Scoop ½ cup (120 ml) cooked rice onto the parchment. Lay Mahi fillet on top of rice. Top with lime slices, 3 ginger sticks, and 1 tablespoon butter. Add a few frozen edamame beans and drizzle with honey. Wrap up parchment, stapling ends closed. Repeat with each Mahi fillet. Lay packages on a baking sheet and place in oven for 10-12 minutes.
  6. Cut open cooked Mahi packages. Finish with olive oil and fresh cilantro leaves.
  7. Allow packages to rest for 2 minutes before serving.
