Mahimahi with Herbed White-Wine Sauce
Recipe from Food & Wine

In this easy, elegant dish, Marcia Kiesel looks to strongly flavored herbs, such as thyme and marjoram, because she likes them with meaty mahimahi. Along with white wine, she includes clam juice to add a briny edge.

  • 1/4  cup 
    pine nuts
  • 1   cup 
    bottled clam juice
  • 1/4  cup 
    dry white wine
  • 1   
    medium shallot, minced
  • 1   tablespoon 
    finely chopped thyme
  • 1   tablespoon 
    finely chopped marjoram
    Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4  6  ounces 
    skinless mahi-mahi fillets
    Extra-virgin olive oil, for rubbing
  • 2   tablespoons 
    finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
In a small saucepan, toast the pine nuts over moderate heat, shaking the pan a few times, until the nuts are fragrant, about 1 minute. Transfer to a plate.
Add the clam juice to the saucepan and boil over high heat until reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Add the wine and boil until reduced to 1/4 cup, about 5 minutes. Add the shallot, thyme and marjoram and season with salt and pepper. Cover the sauce and keep warm.
Light a grill. Rub the fish fillets with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill over high heat, turning once, until nicely charred and just cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer the fish to plates.
Stir the parsley into the wine sauce. Coarsely chop the toasted pine nuts. Spoon the sauce over the fish, sprinkle with the pine nuts and serve.
