Sheet Pan Mahi Fajitas! This recipe works for all kinds of fish. Cod, Tilapia and Halibut to name a few.
The recipe is basically the same as my Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas and my Salmon Sheet Pan Fajitas, but you are going to give the veggies a 10 minute head start. White fish cooks a bit faster than chicken or salmon.
Simply chop your veggies and toss in the simple fajita marinade you just whipped up. Then nestle, (isn’t that a better word than plop? Although I probably plop more than nestle). Okay than, ‘nestle’ the fish fillets right on top of the the par cooked veggies and bake for an additional 20 minutes. Ding dinner done!
Serve it up with tortillas, or just
plop nestle it on salad, or wrap it up in a lettuce leaf for a delish lettuce wrap.
Don’t get me started on the leftover lunchbox thing here. Perrrfeect for that! I love me some leftover lunchbox stuff!
- I buy my Mahi from Costco, frozen – love, love, love it. Thaw before using. Always comes out perfect at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
- If you are using a less thick fillet like Tilapia, make sure and adjust your cooking time.
- Line your sheet pan! Parchment works best but foil will in a pinch. The spices brown up pretty good and your ‘easy dinner’ will be for not as you scrub the pan.
- Use the convection feature of your oven if you have it. It helps brown up the veggies.
