Pan-seared Mahi Mahi w/ Spinach Mash

Happy Tuesday friends!  Last night's dinner was quite a feast, and healthy to boot (I mean we ate fish--that's healthy right??).  Brought to you by the great people at Publix, here is the recipe:

1 lemon (for juice) 
1 small onion
3 slices of bacon
4 mahi, grouper or snapper filets
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

1.  Cut lemon in half, set aside.  Remove ends and peel from onion.  Cut onion in half and slice into think slivers
2.  Preheat large saute pan on medium high 2-3 minutes.  Cut bacon into 1/4 inch pieces.  Place bacon and onions in pan.  Cook 3-4 minutes stirring often until onions begin to soften and bacon begins to brown.  Meanwhile, season both sides of fish with salt and pepper
3.  Arrange fish fillets on top of bacon and onions.  Squeeze juice from the lemon over fish.  Cover and reduce heat to medium.  Cook 10 minutes or until temperature of fish is 145 F.
4.  Remove fish fillets from pan.  Increase heat to high and cook 2-3 minutes uncovered or until most of the liquid is evaporated.  Serve bacon and onions over fish.

Spinach mashed potatoes: Make mashed potatoes as you normally would and stir in about 5 or 6 oz. of cooked spinach.  We melted butter with garlic and added that and Parmesan cheese to the potatoes.

Bon Appetit!
