Dan’s Uncle was in town and we walked around campus reminiscing with him about this and that. He was a gator 20 years ago. We stopped by the swamp to put our feet up for a bit and found a nice shady reprieve.
For some reason, I felt compelled to special order 5 fillets of mahi last time I went to publix and I picked them up today. $40, burn! I was under the impression more people would want dibs, but it was just Dan and me. The good ol’ classic pecan crusted mahi.
- 2 Mahi fillets
- 1/4 cup pecans, chopped fine
- 1/4 cup plain bread crumbs
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup milk
The Dry Rub
In 3 small bowl, combine the above ingredients, dip the mahi in 1, 2, 3 . In a medium pan, on medium heat, cook the mahi for about 5 minutes each side.
Served with green beans and blank stares.

Well, I had my first Microeconomics test tonight and I got an 88. Unfortunately, I can’t blame it on the meal I ate before hand because it was delicious. This was no surprise though as it is the second time in 4 days that I made this. Clearly, I’m sold on it.
- 1.77lb of salmon (on sale 6.99/lb!)
- 1/4 cup olive oil

First fish dish of the semester and boy was it delicious.
1.5 lbs fresh cut salmon, skinned
2x 1/4 cup olive oil
2x 1 tsp lemon juice
2x 1 tsp minced garlic
2x 2 tsp honey
The reason these things are listed as 2x is because you make two batches of the glaze. One to marinate the fish in and one to baste it during the grilling process.
Grilled on 300 degrees for about 6-7 minutes on each side, basting liberaly. Pretty simple.
Served along side green beans and a croissant.
