Mahimahi with Sage Garlic Chips

The flavorful oil is used for basting the fish, and the garlic "chips" are sprinkled over the finished dish as a crunchy topping.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 12 cloves garlic, cut into thin slices
  • 1 tablespoon dried sage
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
  • 4 mahimahi steaks, about 3/4 inch thick (about 2 pounds in all)

Directions

  • In a small saucepan, combine the oil, garlic, sage, and 1/4 teaspoon each of the salt and pepper. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the garlic just starts to brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Don't let it brown thoroughly, or it will taste bitter. Strain the oil into a small bowl, reserving the cooked garlic.
  • Light the grill or heat the broiler. Brush some of the oil over the fish and then season with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Grill or broil the fish, basting with the oil, for 4 minutes. Turn and cook, basting with the oil, until just done, 3 to 4 minutes longer. You should have about 2 tablespoons of the flavored oil remaining.
  • To serve, drizzle the remaining oil over the fish. Top with the cooked garlic.
