Chorizo and Almond Crusted Mahi Mahi

Standard

I’ve really been getting into seafood more and more lately! I think my cavewoman self must have lived right near an ocean or river, catching fresh fish everyday–or so I can imagine. I love how easy it is to prepare and how great it makes me feel. This dish adapted from Mark Sisson is packed with protein and flavor and takes less than 20 minutes to whip up!

Chorizo and Almond Crusted Mahi Mahi (Adapted from Primal Blueprint Quick and Easy Meals) (Difficulty-Easy; Serves 2-3)

  • 1 lb. wild caught mahi mahi, halibut, or other flaky white fish
  • 2 oz. Spanish chorizo
  • 1/4 c. blanched almonds
  • 1 Tbsp. organic parsley, roughly chopped
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • coarse sea salt

Preheat oven to 400°F.

In a blender or small food processor, blend the chorizo, almonds and parsley until almonds are in small pieces. While pulsing, drizzle in a teaspoon or so of olive oil and a pinch of salt. Drizzle a few tablespoons of olive oil on the bottom of a baking sheet and set the fish on top. Salt the fish, and spoon the chorizo mixture on top of the fish, patting it down so it sticks as much as possible and the sides are partially covered.

Roast in the oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. To finish, turn the oven broiler to high and broil for 2-3 minutes until the nuts are lightly browned.
