Recipes for a New Year

Sautéed Mahi Mahi with Sauteed Vegetables

Recipes for a New Year

Makes 4 servings

2 cloves garlic

2 shallots or 1 small onion

3 Yukon Gold potatoes

2 cups assorted vegetables

4 mahi mahi fillets

4 strips apple smoked bacon

4 Tbsp. olive oil

1 cup white wine.

1 cup veg or chicken stock

2 Tbsp. Ras El Hanout or other aromatic mix of spices.

2 Tbsp. hoisin or teriyaki sauce

2 Tbsp. ponzu sauce, if available

A dash of harissa or sriracha


You can make this dish with any fish, chicken or pork. For vegans, you could swap the mahi mahi with any kind of squash. Frozen veggies are fine. I use frozen fish, do not thaw. 

Gently sauté finely chopped shallot (or onion) in olive oil, then finely chopped garlic. Do not burn! Then add some finely chopped apple-smoked bacon. Thinly slice small Yukon Gold potatoes, then chop into ¼-inch squares, add to the onion and garlic. Dust the fish fillets with some Ras El Hanout or aromatic spice mix.

Keep stirring, but do not overcook, potato should still be al dente, maybe 3 minutes. Deglaze with white wine, add the other sauces, stir then add fish and stock. Dish is ready when the fish gently breaks up with a fork. Only 2 or 3 minutes. 

Wine Pairing for Recipes

I pair this with a Pillsbury Wine Company WildChild White, available at all Total Wines in Arizona, most AJs, and our Tasting Rooms. The 2015 just won Phoenix New Times’ Best Arizona White, and the 2017 won a Double Gold at the 2019 San Francisco Chronicle.
