  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 onto 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 squashes are completely coated. Transfer squash and zucchini 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, fry mahi-mahi.

  3. 3

    Fry the Mahi-Mahi

    Line a plate with paper towel. Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 Tbsp. olive oil. Add mahi-mahi to hot pan and cook until fish reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 2-3 minutes per side. Remove mahi-mahi to towel-lined plate.

  4. 4

    Make the Sauce

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Add cream and a pinch of salt and pepper to hot pan. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, cook until sauce thickens, 1-2 minutes. Remove from burner and stir in pesto.
