• 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.

Step 2

Rinse the fish, then sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 3

In a large disposable food storage bag, add the sherry wine.

Step 4

Place the Mahi inside the bag, massaging them slightly to ensure every part is exposed to the sherry.

Step 5

Place the sealed bag in the fridge for 30 minutes to allow the fish to marinate.

Step 6

Line a baking dish with foil, then grease the foil with 1 tablespoon of the butter.

Step 7

Remove the fish slices from the bag and lay them in the prepared dish.

Step 8

Spread the mayonnaise over top.

Step 9

Sprinkle the onions and breadcrumbs over the top.

Step 10

Dot the fish with the remaining butter.

Step 11

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.

Step 12

Serve hot with a side of steamed rice!
