Mahi Mahi with Pineapple Salsa and Jasmine Rice with Black Sesame Seeds: Guest Post for The Little Ferraro Kitchen

Hi folks. I have something fun for you all today. Isn’t this pretty? You will love this meal. I know we did!

Well I did promise some healthier meals for you and this is a nice start to that I think. I made a Hawaiian inspired meal the other day. If you are a regular reader then you know me and hubs went to Hawaii many moons ago on our honeymoon. I fell in love with Hawaii and did not want to leave. When we had mini-me we named her a beautiful Hawaiian name I fell in love with while there. Hawaii holds a special place in my heart. So when I made the decision to begin my quest to lose some pounds and strive for a healthier lifestyle I finagled a deal with the hubster to make going back there on a family trip my reward at the end of it. I have no clue how I managed to convince him but that document has been signed, sealed and notarized so there’s no going back on it. This gal doesn’t do pinky swears, she hires lawyers. I want that in writing with witnesses. I’ve been married a long time. You learn some stuff.

So today you can find me over at Samantha’s beautiful blog, The Little Ferraro Kitchen. Sam is such a sweetheart and helped me with a past project with Hawaiian cuisine. So when I foisted myself on her to guest post I knew my meal would be Hawaiian themed. Sam also has ties to Hawaii so we are kindred spirits. So I invite you all to rush on over to The Little Ferraro Kitchen to see my Mahi Mahi with Pineapple Salsa and Jasmine Rice with Black Sesame Seeds. With meals like this I’m sure we’ll be jetting off to Hawaii much sooner than hubs anticipated. Overtime dude, lots and lots of overtime!!!

While you are there make sure you follow Sam’s blog The Little Ferraro Kitchen, and also follow her on Twitter and Facebook. You will not be sorry. This girl can cook like no one’s business. She just got Julia Child’s cookbook and made a Cheese Souffle that’ll knock your socks off. Stop by and check out my dish and my amusing story about I embarrassed hubs in Hawaii. You can dress me up in a bikini but you can’t take me any where. And if you do I’m quite likely to swim off with the scuba instructor. I can’t even say there’s no evidence this time. It was all caught on video. And shown to the entire family. Yup, I am a prize. He’s a lucky guy that hubs of mine.

Toodles and smoochies! xx

    My, my — this looks exactly like what I imagine the food in Hawaii looks like :) Totally need to go there, and make this dish!

      The food there is some fresh and full of flavour. I wish I could move there. The atmosphere is just so wonderful there.

    Looks light and delicious!! I love that you added sesame seeds on the rice… it gives a nice nutty flavor too. :) Beautifully done. PS… I believe you have a Westie…. we are on the look out for one very soon to be a part of our family…. hopefully sooner than later. :)

      The sesame seeds were totally Sam’s idea when we discussed Hawaiian cuisine months ago. It stuck in my head and took me months to find them. But I finally scored some last week.

      I do have a westie. Don’t do it man! They are cute but omg they are also so incredibly stubborn. She is so hard to train. I’ve never met a dog so vindictive in all my life. If you yell at her she will come and try to bite you. She terrorizes my cats. She barks at everything that moves. She pees on the floor every time someone comes to the door. I swear she’s the devil. Don’t do it man!

    This is beautiful! I love mahi mahi but I’ve never tried it with pineapple. You have me laughing about lawyers with your hubs – I make mine shake hands and say, “I promise.” I need to start getting stuff in writing! Heading over to Ferraro Kitchen to check out the recipe now.

      Thanks. I thought about papaya or mango but pineapple just screams Hawaii to me. You gotta get things in writing, and witnessed. Saves headaches later. Lol.

      You are so welcome my dear. I had a blast making this. I am so happy it was “ono”. I plan on more Hawaiian meals in the future. I just love the cuisine so much. And thank you, I am hoping it sticks this time. I need to get hearty healthy and being thin wouldn’t be such a bad side effect. Thanks for letting me invade your world. xx

    Pineapple + mahi mahi is one of my favorite flavor combinations…first discovered in Baja years ago.

      The pineapple just compliments the fish so nicely. I am so happy to know other people agree with me on this. Wow Baja, nice. Some place I’d love to go one day. Thanks for visiting. xx

    Oh Kim….what beautiful, vibrant fresh flavors here! Will jump on over to Little Ferraro Kitchen to say hi! : )

  12. 23

    So fresh and colorful…going to check it out!

    I’ve never had pineapple salsa before, but sounds like it would go really well with mahi mahi. Very pretty plate!

    • 26

      Thanks so much. I really like papaya salsa so seemed like an easy jump to pineapple. So good with the mahi.

  14. 27

    Great guest post Kim! Gorgeous clicks and what a fantastic meal you.

    I love Mahi-Mahi, Dorado, Dolphin..whatever you want to call it. When Mellis and I go to SXM to work or vaca we always get it. They usually cook it over charcoal and brush the fish with butter and garlic.

    This is great but I am waiting for a Poutine post!

    • 30

      Oh that sounds tasty with just some garlic and butter. I’ll have to try that.

      Um, I am sorry to admit I am a bad Canuck. I hate poutine. With a passion. Lol.

  16. 31

    Wow, the photos of this recipe look delicious! I’m HUGE on fish…I don’t have many reservations about fish whatsoever and mahi mahi is always so good! I love fish and fruit together so the pineapple salsa sounds amazing as well!

    • 32

      Thanks so much Julia. Fish is just so amazing. It’s one of those things that the less you mess with it the better it tastes. I love that. I want to try this again with papaya salsa.

  17. 33

    This looks wonderful Kim, healthy too. I love the pineapple salsa. I want to make that.. Great job.

  18. 35

    Really nice dish – and the photos are great! And pineapple salsa is great (all the fruit salsas are). Good post – thanks.
