Bacon-Wrapped Mahi Mahi

Today is my boyfriend's birthday.  Earlier in the week, I asked him what he wanted for dinner today.  He requested my barbecue-seasoned, bacon-wrapped mahi mahi, so that is what we had tonight.  

I imagine you could use any firm white fish, but mahi mahi is my favorite. It has a very meaty texture and a mild flavor. 

Bacon-Wrapped Mahi Mahi

6 mahi mahi fillets

4 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon garlic salt
1/2 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon smoked paprika

6 slices bacon

Mix together the sugar, salt, pepper, cumin and paprika.  Season both sides of the fish with this mixture.   Place fish on a lined baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap, and store in the refrigerator.  Allow fish to marinate for 4-6 hours.

Preheat oven to 425.

Wrap each fillet in a slice of bacon.  Bake the fish for 12-15 minutes, until the bacon is done and the fish flakes easily with a fork.   Flip once during cooking.

There you have it, an easy, really freaking good fish recipe.  I served it with steamed jasmine rice and green beans seasoned with soy sauce, garlic, and ginger and tossed with sliced almonds.  Deeeeeelicious.
