Healthy Alternative
to Fish Stick Dinner


Crispy Mahi Mahi Fingers
8 oz. fresh mahi mahi, cut into 1 oz. fingers
2 cups corn flakes, crushed
2 large eggs, beaten
½ cup oat flour
4 oz. grapeseed oil
Salt and pepper
Season mahi mahi fingers with salt and pepper then dredge in the oat flour and shake off excess flour very well.  Place floured mahi mahi fingers into beaten eggs then remove and drain for just a moment before dredging in crushed corn flakes.  Preheat a saute pan over medium-high heat.  Pour grapeseed oil into heated pan and gently place the breaded mahi fingers into the pan, leaving 1” of space all around them.  Turn the fingers over onto all four long sides until golden brown and crispy.  Check the fish for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the thickest part of the flesh.  When the toothpick can be pushed all the way through with little to no resistance, it is done. If your fish is not cooked through, but has been browed on all sides, place in a 350 oven to finish.

1 red pepper, diced
