A note about serious food allergies

The panko, the Parmesan, the pesto… all these "P's" lead us to pure pristine flavor perfection. The mahi retains its moist flakiness in the panko crust. The fish is served on the puckering, yet creamy pesto sauce, the melding of the two being the Platonic ideal of soft and crunch tang. Nutty Parmesan dusts fresh vegetables, and the entire meal comes together in one, two, pthree. Pthree? Yeah, we were trying too hard there.

  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using chicken, follow same instructions as mahi-mahi in Steps 1 (no need to halve) and 3,

  • flipping every 3-5 minutes until golden brown and chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 10-14 minutes.

  • If using salmon, pat dry and season flesh side with a pinch of salt and pepper. Coat flesh side with panko and add salmon, panko-side down and skin-side up, to hot pan. Sear on first side until panko is golden brown, 4-6 minutes, then flip and continue cooking until salmon reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim zucchini and yellow squash ends and cut into ¼" slices on an angle. Coarsely chop tomatoes. Halve mahi-mahi and pat dry. Season all over with a pinch of salt and pepper. Place panko on a plate. Top panko with mahi-mahi pieces and flip until coated, pressing gently to adhere.

  2. 2

    Roast the Vegetables

    Combine zucchini, yellow squash, flour, and garlic salt in a mixing bowl until evenly coated. Transfer mixture to prepared casserole dish. Top with tomatoes, a pinch of salt and pepper, Parmesan, and 1 tsp. olive oil. Roast in hot oven until squash is tender and cheese is browned, 20-25 minutes. While vegetables roast, bake mahi-mahi.

  3. 3

    Bake the Mahi-Mahi

    Transfer mahi-mahi pieces to prepared baking sheet. Bake in hot oven until panko is golden brown and mahi-mahi reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, XX-YY minutes.

    Make the Sauce
