Method

  1. Combine all Marinade ingredients, and marinate Mahi Mahi for 1 hour.
  2. For the Tropical Salsa, put all ingredients in a food processor and pulse a few times. Heat the salsa in a sauté pan over a medium-high heat for about 2 minutes, or until it starts to simmer. Set aside.
  3. For the Rellano, char the skin of the poblano peppers, and run under cool water to remove all the skin. Cut a slit in the pepper and remove the seeds.
  4. Take one slice of each cheese and put them together. Place the cheese into the slit in the peppers.
  5. Mix together the eggs, flour, water, salt and TABASCO® Chipotle Pepper Sauce. Dip peppers into the batter; then deep-fry until golden brown.
  6. To cook the fish, place it on a sizzler or in a hotel pan. Add a little of the marinade to coat the fish. Place in a 550°F oven until cooked, about 5 minutes. Just before removing from oven, drizzle a few drops of lemon juice and a few drops of TABASCO® Chipotle Pepper Sauce on fish.
  7. To serve, place the pepper slightly off center on each plate. Place the fish next to, and slightly on top of, the pepper. Spoon salsa over the fish. Garnish with lemon wedges and fresh cilantro.
