Marvel With A Mango: Matecumbe Mahi-Mahi

During our time in Florida we took one day and went all the way down to the tip of the state and visited Key Largo and the Florida Keys. We toyed with the idea of driving all the way down to Key West but we decided on saving that for another trip. While in Key Largo we wanted to try some fresh fish and we stopped at The Fish House Restaurant for lunch. The waiter recommended the mahi-mahi done in a style called matecumbe and I went with that. Mahi-mahi is a tropical fish that averages 15-30 pounds and in the matecumbe style it is cooked with tomatoes, shallots, capers, olive oil, and lemon juice.

It was a great dish and afterward we shared a piece of key lime pie that had been on our mind for a few days.

That's a fin you could expect to see off the coast of Florida.
