Ingredients• 3 slices Mahi • salt, to taste • pepper, to taste • 1/2 cup sherry wine • 2 tablespoons butter, divided in half • 1 cup mayonnaise • 1 large onion, sliced • 1/2 cup bread crumbs • steamed rice, optional, for serving
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Rinse the fish, then sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
In a large disposable food storage bag, add the sherry wine.
Place the Mahi inside the bag, massaging them slightly to ensure every part is exposed to the sherry.
Place the sealed bag in the fridge for 30 minutes to allow the fish to marinate.
Line a baking dish with foil, then grease the foil with 1 tablespoon of the butter.
Remove the fish slices from the bag and lay them in the prepared dish.
Spread the mayonnaise over top.
Sprinkle the onions and breadcrumbs over the top.
Dot the fish with the remaining butter.
Place the dish in the oven and bake until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of one of the slices reads 145 degrees F, about 20 minutes.
Serve hot with a side of steamed rice!
