Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using chicken breasts, pat dry and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Follow same instructions as mahi-mahi in Step 3, cooking until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes per side.

  • If using salmon fillets, pat dry and season flesh side with a pinch of salt and pepper. Follow same instructions as mahi-mahi in Step 3, cooking, skin side up first, until salmon reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes per side.

  1. 1

    Roast the Sweet Potatoes and Garlic

    Cut sweet potato into 1/4"-thick quarter-moons.

    Place garlic and 1 tsp. olive oil on a piece of foil and form a foil pouch around garlic. Place directly on oven rack, opening side up, and roast in hot oven until garlic is tender, 15-20 minutes.

    While garlic roasts, place sweet potatoes on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 Tbsp. olive oil, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Spread into a single layer.

    Roast in hot oven, 15 minutes.

    Flip sweet potatoes and top evenly with Parmesan. Roast in hot oven until browned and tender, 8-10 minutes.

    While sweet potatoes and garlic roast, continue recipe.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Mince parsley, leaves and stems.

    Zest lemon. Halve lemon lengthwise. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half.

    Halve mahi-mahi, pat dry, and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

    Place panko on a plate.

    In a mixing bowl, combine mayonnaise and 1 Tbsp. water until smooth. Dip mahi-mahi in mayonnaise mixture, coating both sides completely. Place mahi-mahi on panko, pressing gently to adhere to both sides.

  3. 3

    Cook the Mahi-Mahi

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Add mahi-mahi to hot pan and cook until mahi-mahi reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 3-4 minutes per side.

    Replenish oil if needed. Fish thickness can vary; if you receive a thinner fillet, we recommend checking for doneness sooner.

    Remove from burner. Transfer mahi-mahi to a plate. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  4. 4

    Make the Sauce

    Return pan used to cook mahi-mahi to medium heat and add 2 Tbsp. water. Bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, stir in softened cream cheese until thoroughly melted and slightly thickened, 2-3 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Add butter, 1 Tbsp. lemon juice, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir until throughly combined.

    Return pan to medium heat. Stir constantly until slightly thickened and smooth, 30-60 seconds.

    Remove from burner.

  5. 5

    Make Gremolata and Finish Dish

    Mash or chop roasted garlic on a clean cutting board. Transfer to another mixing bowl. Add 1/2 tsp. parsley, 1/2 tsp. lemon zest, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir to combine.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping mahi-mahi with sauce and garnishing sweet potatoes with gremolata. Squeeze lemon wedges over to taste. Bon appétit!
