  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 4 mahi mahi or salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 3 medium sweet red peppers, cut into thick strips
  • 1/2 pound sliced baby portobello mushrooms
  • 1 large sweet onion, cut into thick rings and separated
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh chives
  • 1/3 cup pine nuts, optional


  1. In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat. Add fillets; cook until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork, 4-5 minutes on each side. Remove from pan.
  2. Add remaining oil, peppers, mushrooms, onion, lemon juice and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook, covered, over medium heat until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally, 6-8 minutes.
  3. Place fish over vegetables; sprinkle with pepper and remaining salt. Cook, covered, until heated through, about 2 minutes longer. Sprinkle with chives and, if desired, pine nuts before serving.
